Leeds United are set to swoop for three Italian players, according to reports in Italy, in order to add depth to the squad ahead of their attempt to reach the Premier League, says the Daily Express.

Cellino's infuence

The club’s owner, Massimo Cellino, is planning to raid Cagliari, the club he previously owned, for promising young goalkeeper, Marco Silvestri. The 23-year-old Italian did well on loan at Chievo Verona last term, managing one clean sheet in three games for the Serie A side.

Cellino is also turning to the Italian top division to find reinforcements up front, to assist star striker, Ross McCormack. Hellas Verona’s Daniele Cacia is being targeted, despite only managing to provide one assist in 13 appearances for the Serie A side last season.

Cecia played a vital role in Verona’s promotion from Serie B the season before, which has convinced Cellino that he can preform in England’s second division. The player has confirmed he is on his way out of the club this summer, and Leeds have emerged as favourite to land his signature.

Lastly on Cellino’s wishlist is Roma’s 22-year-old starlet, Federico Viviani. The defensive midfielder spent last season on loan with Pescara and Latina Calcio in Serie B, but after the youngster managed to score five goals and provide two assists from a defensive position, Leeds are convinced he would prove to be a top signing for the club.

Agent quotes

Viviani’s agent, Giovanni Ferro, has confirmed Leeds’ interest in his client, but Leeds could face competition for his signature, as other English clubs have expressed an interest in the player.

He reportedly said, “Federico is resting and is now on vacation.

“When he returns he will sit down with the club and decide together. Leeds and other English teams are showing interest in Federico.”
