Newly promoted Leeds make enquiry for AC Milan striker Rafael Leao

By Edikan Akpan - Leeds are seriously reinforcing ahead on their return to the Premier League and are eyeing the AC Milan ace as part of their plan.

In addition to Rodrigo Moreno, Marcelo Bielsa is keen on Milan forward Rafael Leao, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Portuguese striker Leao, 21, joined Milan from the French side Lille last summer for a reported fee of €35m.

Leao began to flourish following the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in January after struggling to adjust to life in Italy.

Prior to Zlatan’s return to the San Siro, Leao managed just one goal. But after the Swede joined, Leao in 15 appearances scored five and assisted one goal.
Leeds want to give Bielsa at least two attacking signings in the transfer window to make sure they are well equipped for the top flight.

And it has been reported that the club’s Italian owner Andrea Radrizzani has contacted Milan to explore a deal for Leao.

Leeds are now waiting for a response from the Rossoneri, who would prefer to hold on to Leao to challenge for top flights in the Seria A.
