Leeds United have recently found themselves linked to the signature of Portuguese winger Salvador Agra.

A Bola reported last week that the Nacional attacker was on the radar of Leeds and that the Yorkshire club were working on a deal to bring him to Elland Road.

Speaking to HITC Sport this week Agra’s agent Bruno Carvalho confirmed there had been interest from England’s second-tier, but would not confirm if that interest had indeed come from the Yorkshire side. He also made it clear that Agra would relish the chance to play for a team as big as Leeds:

“Yes, there has been some contact from some teams of the Championship.” He continued, ““For sure, that’s one type of football that matches perfectly Salvador Agra’s style. Regarding Leeds, Agra knows the history of the club well and it could (be) amazing playing for a team like Leeds.”

Agra only joined Nacional last summer and is contracted at the club until 2019 and Carvalho confirmed his client would cost a fee:

“Yes, he still has a contract (with Nacional) and there's some values involved in his transfer.”

Previously he spent time on loan from former club Real Betis at the likes of Italian side Siena and Portuguese outfits Braga and Academica. He also has eight caps for Portugal under-21s and has two goals at that level so is certainly a talent.

His agent discussed his international aspirations with HITC Sport, suggesting that a move to England might help his senior Portugal international hopes, but maintaining he would need to continue working hard to get the call-up:

“Agra represented Portugal until U21 and he is a player with a lot of ambition.

“He works every day to get better. Off course, in terms of the transfer for England could give different visibility but being in Portugal or in England without working hard doesn’t give him any chances, but we won’t deny that sometimes playing outside Portugal give players different visibility.”

Agra stands at a rather diminutive 5ft 5ins but has plenty of speed and can be a potent finisher -n as he showed against Benfica in the final game of the Portuguese season recently. His arrival at Leeds would add much needed options to the wide positions, considering he can play from both flanks.

It certainly seems as though Agra would be interested in a move to Elland Road if the chance comes this summer.
