Spanish outlet AS has reported about Leeds’ chase of Tagliafico, saying that the Whites have made contact over the Argentine and have ‘entered the bidding’ for a potential deal for the Ajax left-back.
While the Whites are interested, they will face competition from other clubs to sign the Argentine. Manchester City are one of the clubs interested and so are Atletico Madrid. The player has a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ to leave Ajax in the summer and Antonio Conte’s Inter are also one of the interested parties.
Should Leeds pay the asking price for Tagliafico?
The defender is valued at €15m (£13m) by Ajax, and the player shouldn’t have problems in getting a UK visa because of his Italian passport.
This news update was relayed on Twitter by Leeds United News. Many Whites fans made their opinion clear about the Argentine.
What did Leeds fans make of the news about Tagliafico?
“£13 for him, Koopmeiners for £18m, let’s get them done.”
“Big statement of intent if we get him for next season, we mean business.“
