Leeds United defender Giuseppe Bellusci is reportedly on the radar of Cagliari and Benevento.

Giuseppe Bellusci’s current contract with Leeds United runs until June 2018, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk, but one should not be surprised if the defender leaves the Championship club in the summer transfer window.

The 27-year-old centre-back has been on the books of Leeds since 2014, but the Italian spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Italian club Empoli.

The former Catania defender featured in 33 Series A matches for Empoli last season, scoring one goal in the process, according to WhoScored.

According to Tuttomercatoweb.com, Cagliari are interested in signing Bellusci from Leeds in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the Serie A club are looking for a replacement for Bruno Alves, who has joined Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, and that they have identified the Leeds defender as a replacement.

The report has also claimed that Cagliari will make an offer for Bellusci to Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani; Tuttomercatoweb.com has credited Benevento Calcio with interest in the Italian centre-back as well.

Benevento Calcio will play in Serie A next season after winning promotion from Serie B at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
