Leeds United and Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Francesco Anacoura from Juventus in the summer transfer window, according to Tuttomercatoweb.com.

Anacoura has been on the books of Juventus since he was a teenager, but he has not made a single appearance in Serie A for the Italian giants so far.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper has been out on four separate loan spells away from Juve since 2013. The youngster has featured for Cuneo, Pro Vercelli, Pontedera and Rimini on loan.

Anacoura is back at Juventus, and according to Tuttomercatoweb.com, Championship duo Leeds and Forest are interested in securing his services this summer.

The 21-year-old is a talented young goalkeeper, but it is hard to see why the Whites or the Reds would want to sign him now.

The youngster does not have top-level experience and would not be first choice in goal either at Elland Road or at the City Ground next season.

Marco Silvestri is the first-choice custodian at Leeds at the moment, with Ross Turnbull and Bailey Peacock-Farrell his back-ups. Dorus de Vries was Forest’s first-choice goalkeeper during the 2015-16 campaign.
