Reacting too late in the summer transfer window to land Massimo Coda, the Salernitana striker is still interesting the Whites ahead of the January transfer window, report Sport Witness.
Having actually extended his deal with the Serie B outfit following Leeds United’s interest, Serie A outfit Crotone are now trailing Coda’s signature in two months’ time.
If Salernitana do decide to reluctantly part with Coda this January, Sport Witness’ report claims Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino may be willing to step in given his previous admiration of the 28-year-old.
Currently enjoying a positive season under Garry Monk with the Elland Road side currently sixth in the Championship table, some astute January additions could really give the Whites some momentum in the second half of the season.
Having recruited well in the summer, Leeds United are a side in form and relieving the goalscoring burden off Chris Wood would go a long way to potentially making the Championship playoffs.
Scoring 16 goals in 45 appearances for Salernitana to date, Coda boasts a healthy goalscoring record and with Cellino having overseen numerous transfers from his native Italy to date, this will be another pursuit to watch.
