Up to three Italian clubs are interested in signing Leeds United’s forgotten man Caleb Ekuban this summer, as reported by Takvim.
Ekuban is currently enjoying a temporary spell with Trabzonspor and it seems that a loan move to Turkey is the best thing that could have happened to him.
The striker’s reputation had taken a battering during an awful debut season with Leeds, where he scored just a single Championship goal.
But Ekuban has got his career back on track in Trabzon, scoring seven times while also capping his long-awaited Ghana debut by notching the winner against Kenya in March.
Takvim reports that Trabzonspor are planning to take up their option to sign the 24-year-old permanently for around £1 million. Though it is claimed that three clubs in Italy would be interested in handing the Super Lig side an immediate profit for a player they believe is worth £9 million in today’s market.
The identity of these clubs is unknown but it seems that a return to Serie A could be on the cards for a player Leeds signed from Chievo Verona in the summer of 2017.
