Cagliari join Leeds United in race for Sassuolo striker Leonardo Pavoletti - report

Leeds Players Warm Up

Sassuolo striker Leonardo Pavoletti, who has been linked with Leeds United, is now reportedly on the radar of Cagliari.

Italian club Cagliari have reportedly joined the race for Sassuolo striker Leonardo Pavoletti.

According to Gianlucadimarzio.com, the Serie A outfit are “looking for a reinforcement to the front line, and Pavoletti is their first choice”.

Pavoletti has struggled for playing time so far this season, and there have been reports in Italy claiming that the 26-year-old could leave Sassuolo in the January transfer window.

Leeds United have long been credited with an interest in the Italian striker, but they can sign him only on loan due to a transfer embargo.

Interestingly, Cagliari was formerly owned by Massimo Cellino, who is the current president of Leeds.

It seems that an interesting tussle between Cagliari and Leeds lie in wait.
