Leeds linked with a move for Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez

It’s no secret that Leeds are interested in Nahitan Nandez. But who isn’t?

The reports in Italy suggested that Leeds United are linked with a move for Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez.

The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

Cagliari spent 17 million euros to sign the Uruguay international from Boca Juniors in the summer of 2019. The 25-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2024.

The midfielder has banged in 2 goals and provided 3 assists in 34 matches this term on all fronts.

He’s incredibly experienced for a 25-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.

Nandez has earned 35 senior caps for the Uruguay national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.

The 25-year-old has been in impressive form for Cagliari this season and it looks like he caught the eye of many European clubs including Leeds.

Marcelo Bielsa wants to sign a new midfielder and Nandez is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

Bielsa will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Cagliari midfielder is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.

Nandez has the talent to play many roles in midfield. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Leeds United are eager to sign Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez in the summer. The Whites have been consistently linked to Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese, but could be about to switch their attention to another midfielder. Nandez has a release clause. According to Calciomercato, Roma are also interested in Nandez, but may have turned their attention elsewhere. Leeds could secure the 25-year-old for €36 million.”


Leeds will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Cagliari to the negotiating table. The Whites have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.

The Italian club are preparing to sell their midfielder should they receive a massive offer for him.

Leeds are reportedly facing competition from Roma in their pursuit of Cagliari midfielder.

Good signing for Leeds United?

The 25-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Leeds squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.

Nahitan Nandez has all the skillset required to be a success story at Leeds. Therefore, it makes sense for Bielsa to step up his attempts to bring the Uruguay midfielder to Premier League side.

If Bielsa sees him as the right man for his side, Leeds should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
