Leeds United East Stand

Fabio Cannavaro has reportedly been lined up to take over from Steve Evans at Leeds United.

According to a report on Gazzetta World, Fabio Cannavaro has already met with Leeds United representatives.

Cannavaro has reportedly been lined up by Leeds to take over from Steve Evans at Elland Road.

Chairman Massimo Cellino believes that the World Cup winner is the right man to take the club forward, and he could look to appoint the 42-year-old is the coming weeks.

Cellino has reportedly lost faith in Evans after Leeds suffered heavy defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town recently.

According to the Gazzetta, Leeds have already sounded out Cannavaro over whether he would be interested in the job.

The former Juventus player apparently met with Leeds representatives on Wednesday, where he discussed taking charge of the Yorkshire side.

The Gazzetta believe that Leeds are not the only club interested in appointing Cannavaro, though, with two unnamed sides in the Middle East also reportedly keen.

If Cannavaro does take over at Leeds in the near future, he will inherited a side who are currently sat in 13th place in the Championship table.
