Leeds United striker Mirco Antenucci is undoubtedly a man in demand in his Italian homeland.

The striker’s contract at Elland Road expires this summer and he will not be extending his stay with the club.

This weekend he has found himself linked to two new teams.

Firstly, Tutto Mercato Web reported this week in an exclusive that SPAL are keen on snapping up the player this summer.

SPAL won promotion to Serie B in 2015-16 and are looking to strengthen their squad for a season in the second tier.

It is also being reported that Cremonese are keen on the player.

Tuttosport reported that the Italian third-tier side were also looking to bring him in.

The Italian seems to have a choice to make.

In recent weeks he has been linked with several other clubs in Italy.

Hellas1903 reported Il Mattino as claiming that recently relegated Serie A side Hellas Verona were keen on the player – as are Pescara and Avellino.

Sky Italia reported that fallen giants Parma have Antenucci on their transfer wishlist for their return to Italy’s third-tier next season.

TuttoMercatoWeb reported that the recently promoted to Serie B side Benevento were also keen on the player.

In March it was reported that Ascoli were interested by Corriere Adriatico.

Novara, also in Serie B, were also credited with an interest – with their president confirming interest in the player to Sporterni.

So it seems the Leeds striker won’t be unemployed for long.
