Federico Viviani is apparently nearing a move to Leeds United.

The Daily Mail reported a few days ago that Leeds were interested in the player and now Massimo Cellino is apparently keen on bringing the midfielder in from Roma.

The 22-year old carries a hefty price tag of roughly £2 million but if he performs at Leeds, that money may easily be reimbursed as Europe’s elite may want the player if he develops well at the West Yorkshire side.

He has already featured in the Italian under-21’s and with Cellino and Hockaday apparently big fans, it may pave a move nicely for Viviani across to Elland Road.
