Robert Acquafresca formerly of Inter Milan has attracted the interest of Leeds United Italian source TuttoMercato reports.

Acquafresca played for Inter Milan between 2005-2009 and has featured heavily in the Italy U21’s squad before where he made 18 appearances and contributed 11 goals across those games. Since leaving Inter he has featured at Cagliari twice on separate loan spells- Cellino’s old club.

At Cagliari in his first loan spell when he was contracted to Inter Milan, Acquafresca scored 24 goals in 68 games where as his second loan spell when at Genoa, he scored eight goals in 37 games for the Italian club.

The striker also featured at the 2008 Olympics with Italy and it is believed that Leeds are now very keen to bring the striker towards Elland Road.

The West-Yorkshire club have already signed Souleymane Doukara in this window and are looking to bring more striking options to the club seen as Ross McCormack left the West-Yorkshire club.

Look out for more information on this potential transfer in the coming days.
