Reports in the Daily Mail in December suggested that Leeds had eyed up a loan deal to sign Inter Milan midfielder Rene Krhin.
The Slovenian international, 24, is well down the pecking order at the San Siro, and it appears that the former Bologna man will be leaving Roberto Mancini's side this month.
Now, in an exclusive interview with FCInter1908, Krhin's agent Marcel Kacinari says that the midfielder's future could be decided next week, admitting that he has offers from abroad.
"Still there is no important change, we need to figure out the intentions of all. We are open to all possibilities, Rene can remain or he can leave too. We will understand better next week when we will evaluate the situation better. Requests from abroad? Yes, but not only from abroad. We have to calmly assess," said Kacinari.
Krhin is primarily a defensive midfielder, and has made 16 appearances for the Slovenia national team having been highly rated in Italy.
However, he's far from the only midfielder Leeds are considering. Reports over the last week have linked Leeds with a move for Palermo's Granddi N'Goyi, with mostly holding midfielders being linked with the club.
Fans may not see that as a desperate need given the displays of Lewis Cook this season, but it seems that manager Neil Redfearn or sporting director Nicola Salerno disagree.
