Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani has ‘liked’ a tweet from a fan urging the signing of Rodrigo De Paul before the match against Newcastle United.

Following the defeat for Marcelo Bielsa’s side against Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road in the Premier League today, a Leeds fan has urged Radrizzani to bring in De Paul from Udinese.

The Whites are back in action on January 26 when they take on Newcastle away from home at St. James’ Park in the league.

Rodrigo De Paul speculation

The Sun reported earlier this month that Leeds are interested in signing De Paul, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger.

The report in the British tabloid claimed that Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa is in two minds whether to make a bid for his Argentine compatriot now or wait until the summer of 2021.

Well-known journalist Fabrizio Romano told GiveMeSport this month that Leeds will have to pay €40 million (£35.56 million) if they want to sign De Paul.

The Mirror reported in September 2020 that Leeds wanted to bring the Argentina international to Elland Road in the summer of 2020.

The Udinese attacker would add more creativity to the current Leeds team and would make them more potent, but the West Yorkshire outfit are not the only club who are interested in him.

Corriere dello Sport (print edition, page 25, Friday, January 15, 2021) has reported that Liverpool are interested in the 26-year-old.
