Leeds enter Nicolas Tagliafico transfer race with Chelsea and Man City also chasing £17.5m left-back

LEEDS have joined the chase for Ajax left back Nicolas Tagliafico.

The Dutch side are resigned to losing the Argentina international this summer and sources in Holland suggest he could cost as little as £17.5million.

Tagliafico, 28, has two years left on his current contract but is believed to have an agreement with Ajax that he can leave.

The defender was linked with a move last summer, with Chelsea and Manchester City mentioned as possible destinations.

Tottenham were also linked with the ace when compatriot Mauricio Pochettino was in charge in 2019.

Uncertainty caused by the pandemic hampered plans in 2020 but Leeds are among the clubs ready to move for Tagliafico after the season ends.

The left-back position is an area where boss Marcelo Bielsa wants to strengthen.

Ezgjan Alioski, in theory a winger, has done a decent job on that flank of the defence this season.

But Bielsa wants a specialist and Tagliafico, with his hard-running style and technical ability, would fit well into Leeds’ system.

The player himself responded favourably to reports last week from Italy that Inter Milan were interested in him.

Former Inter and Argentina star Javier Zanetti was his childhood hero but the Italian club’s financial issues will restrict their power in the transfer market.
