Leeds United are one of the teams who have apparently requested information on Fiorentina defender Igor, according to a report from Firenze Viola.
It has been a promising window for Jesse Marsch’s side. Max Wober has arrived to strengthen the defense. Meanwhile, Georginio Rutter has become the club’s most expensive signing ever.
But it seems that Leeds are not done.
Leeds ask for information about Igor
According to Fabrizio Romanotalks are ongoing over a deal for Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.
And it would appear that he may not be their only target in Serie A. According to the report from Firenze Viola, Leeds want Igor. And they have asked for information on the Brazilian.
Igor has been a stalwart of the side this season, making 20 appearances in all competitions. And along with Leeds, there is interest from the likes of Atletico Madrid, Brighton and Brentford.
Fiorentina, unsurprisingly, have little interest in letting him leave. The report claims that his asking price is over £17.6 million (€20 million).
Igor is an interesting target for Leeds. Realistically, we do not need to worry about signing another centre-back if Wober’s performance against Brentford is a sign of what is to come.
Our budget will be limited at this stage. And other areas look to be bigger priorities. So it may be that Leeds’ interest ended before the Austrian arrived earlier in the window.
But Igor would be another exciting signing. The 24-year-old is quick and reads the game extremely well. FBRef meanwhile, lists Milan Skriniar, Piero Hincapie and Fikayo Tomori as similar players. So he is definitely a player to keep an eye on.
But it seems highly unlikely, as things stand, that he is going to be following Wober and Rutter through the door this month.
