Leeds want De Paul after Moreno and Koch signings

Leeds United want to continue their summer recruitment drive by signing Udinese midfielder Rodrigo de Paul.

According to the Telegraph with confirmation from Gianluce Di Marzio, 26-year-old De Paul is Marcelo Bielsa’s first choice to strengthen his midfield.

The Argentine international is under contract with Udinese until 2024 and would cost Leeds at least £25m (€28m).

Negotiations are well underway between the clubs over a fee for De Paul and a deal could be done quickly.

De Paul’s excellent performances for Udinese have put him on the radar of clubs such as Juventus and Atletico Madrid.

It would be another impressive signing for Leeds were they to pull off a move for De Paul.

He moved to Europe in 2014 with Spanish club Valencia before joining Udinese for €3m in 2016.

Reports in Italy suggest he wants to leave Udinese for a bigger challenge and Leeds could offer him an ambitious project.

De Paul scored seven goals and delivered six assists for Udinese in Serie A last season.
