Brancolini is only 16, but his performances at youth level in Italy have caught the eye.
Brancolini had attracted the attentions of Manchester United, as well as Leeds, but Fiorentina are also in the race for the prospect’s signature.
And, according to reports in Italy, it is La Viola who are winning the race to sign Brancolini.
Brancolini is said to want to remain in Italy, rather than pursue a move abroad at such an early stage of his career.
Moving to Fiorentina would be a step up from his current club of Modena, and the youngster is seemingly keen on the switch.
Leeds have been busy actively strengthening their youth ranks this summer, with Andrea Radrizzani seemingly keen to increase the productivity of the Whites’ youth system.
Leeds have already been scouring Europe for talent, with Barcelona forward Kun Temenuzhkov set to sign according to Bulgarian newspaper Novsport.
