Five potential wide options for Leeds United from Serie A

Neil Redfearn

Players from Palermo, Lazio, Fiorentina, Juventus and Udinese feature.

The transfer window is coming to an end and Leeds United have made pretty good use to it, with the arrivals of Sol Bamba and Granddi Ngoyi.

However they need a winger, a point made by assistant manager Steve Thompson this week.

They have recently done well in the Italian market, with an abundance of players arriving from Serie A and B - due to Massimo Cellino's links in the country.

He is currently not in charge at the club but Italian connections are still present, so who could they bring in from the Italian top flight?

We take a look at five potential options for Leeds from Italian football..

Bruno Pereirinha

The Lazio right-midfielder is languishing at the Rome club at the moment, barely playing any football.

The 26-year-old Portuguese man might just be perfect for Leeds.

Juan Manuel Vargas

An ambitious move, but not impossible.

The Peruvian is a top player, but has not been a regular at Fiorentina recently. Perhaps first-team football in Yorkshire could persuade him to make the move.

Fabio Daprela

The former West Ham man can play at both left-wing and left-back and is currently warming the bench for Palermo. Considering Leeds have already done business with Palermo this month, making a move for Daprela should not be too difficult if they want him.

Simone Pepe

This deal might just be a little too ambitious.

The Italian international is however not a regular in the Juventus side and must be dying for regular first-team football.

Leeds could offer him just that, but his wages and reputation might just put him beyond them.

Marco Faraoni

This would be a more likely deal.

The 23-year-old was a regular at Watford last season before heading back to Udinese, in the hope of proving himself in Italy.

But he has not made it back into the team and a return to England would be a wise move.
