Leeds United are interested in signing Riccardo Orsolini from Ascoli in the summer transfer window, according to Alfredopedulla.com.

Orsolini, who is just 19 years of age and plays as a winger, has a contract with the Serie B outfit unit June 2019, according to Transfermarkt.it.

It has been reported by Alfredopedulla.com that Leeds want to secure the services of the high-rated youngster in the summer transfer window.

It has also been claimed that the Championship outfit will have to pay as much as £3.12m (€4m) for the teenage talent.

General view inside the stadium

Orsolini is a product of Ascoli’s youth academy and played nine times for the first team this past season.

The Italian is one for the future, and perhaps Leeds are looking at him as part of their long-term plan.

General view

The teenager would find it tough in the Championship rightaway, as he does not have too much experience of first-team football.

Moreover, Serie B is not exactly a great division and is not as competitive or rigorous as the Championship.

If Leeds do sign Orsolini in the summer transfer window, then they should initially draft him into the Under-21 side.
