Door open for Leeds United after Italian striker’s camp hint at exit

Former Leeds United target Massimo Coda will consider his options at the end of the season, reports Tuttomercatoweb.

What’s the word?

Last summer, Solo Salerno reported that officials from Leeds held talks with Coda’s camp in the hope of sealing a last-minute deal.

The move did not transpire before the deadline, but news of the 28-year-old’s current situation could attract the attention of the Whites.

Coda’s agent Giuseppe Galli has revealed that he and his client will speak with the player’s current Serie B club Salernitana at the end of the season.

If the two parties are not on the same page with regards to the future, then it appears that Coda will be looking elsewhere.

Tuttomercatoweb quotes Galli as saying:

“In January, there were several requests. We will meet with the club in the summer over its project for next season and then we will see what to do.”

Should Leeds revive their interest?

The club’s transfer strategy is likely to alter depending on how they finish the season.

If Garry Monk guides the club back into the Premier League then they should try to target players with experience at the top level.

If Leeds fail to earn promotion then they need the calibre of player who can fight it out in a renewed bid.

Coda currently plays his football in Italy’s second tier, and he has scored 13 goals in 29 league appearances.

With Chris Wood leading Leeds’ attack, any new striker that comes in will either be used as an option or to challenge for the main role.

As it stands, 28-year-old Coda is not the man to dominate Monk’s attack and he could struggle against Premier League opposition if Leeds make it back into the top flight.
