Marco Silvestri could make a surprise exit from Leeds United this summer, The Mail report.

The paper claim the goalkeeper is wanted by three unnamed Italian clubs, although no bids have yet been received.

Silvestri has been Leeds United's number one since signing from Chievo in 2014.

While he has made errors at times, by and large he has been a consistently good performer for the club over the past two seasons, proving himself as an excellent shot stopper.

The former Italian under-21 international is now 25-years-old and has a contract at the club until 2018.

Whether the Whites would sign a replacement is unclear, as they already have a couple of options with youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who made his debut last season and just signed a contract extension, and veteran Ross Turnbull, who should be fit again after injury.

It is possible Leeds sell him to raise funds and strengthen elsewhere, but simply because there is interest, does not mean they will sell, and it could take a very tempting offer for them to do so.

Who do you want as Leeds United's number one next season?
