According to WhoScored, De Paul scored seven goals and provided six assists in 34 Serie A matches for Udinese last season.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the Argentina international scored nine goals and provided eight assists in 36 league games, according to WhoScored.

Good signing for Leeds United?

Pablo Hernandez is the creator-in-chief at Leeds, but the Spaniard is not getting any younger and he needs support.

De Paul is a very good player who scores goals and creates chances, and he is at the right age to make the move from Italy to a big club in England such as Leeds.
