Leeds could move for Kean this summer

According to Calciomercato.com, Leeds United are interested in signing Juventus teenager Moise Kean in this summer’s transfer window.

What’s the story?

It is no secret that Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa wants to improve his forward line this summer, and the Championship club have been strongly linked with a move for Derby County forward Matej Vydra.

The Whites are said to be considering pulling out of a deal over the striker’s wage demands, however, and they are seemingly ready to pursue alternative targets.

According to Calciomercato.com, Leeds are in the market for Juventus ace Kean, who spent last season on loan with Hellas Verona in Serie A.

The 18-year-old scored once in four appearances for Juventus’ first team during the 2016-17 season before moving on loan to Verona, where he managed four goals in 20 appearances last term.

A player who netted 29 times in just 36 appearances for Juventus’ Under-17 team, Kean is already being tipped to become a future Italy international.

Is the deal actually possible?

Well, according to Calciomercato.com, Juventus are prepared to sell Kean this summer as long as a buy-back clause is included in the deal.

Monaco have also been credited with an interest, but it does seem that Leeds would be more prepared to meet Juventus’ demands than the Ligue 1 outfit.

Kean will not turn 19 until the early stages of next year, and he has already achieved so much during the early stages of his career.

Leeds are certainly a big pull at Championship level, while the arrival of Bielsa as head coach has certainly placed them in a stronger position in the transfer market.

Kean has the potential to become an absolute superstar, but the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin will seemingly limit his chances of breaking into the Italian club’s first team next season.

Leeds could look to use Ronaldo’s move from Real Madrid to land Kean, and it would be a stunning capture if they managed to pull it off.
