Midfielder made available for transfer after Leeds United discussions

Leeds United were linked with a move for Roma’s Edoardo Bove last month and now, reports in Italy state he has been made available for transfer.

Leeds United are staying in the Championship after falling short of promotion back to the Premier League, and it is going to have a big impact on their business this summer.

The Whites need to pay £190m in outstanding transfer instalments, so player sales are sure to be the main focus of the window. However, new signings are needed too if Daniel Farke’s side are going to battle for promotion again.

One player linked with a move to Elland Road in May was Roma midfielder Edoardo Bove.

Now, a fresh update has emerged on the 22-year-old’s transfer fate.

As per reports from both Sky Italy and Il Tempo (via Football Italia), Roma have made Bove available for transfer this summer. His representatives have been informed they will be listening to offers for the midfielder after previous talks with Leeds United.

Who is this?

Out of reach?

While Leeds United may have had talks over a potential deal for Bove previously, it seems highly unlikely that their admiration will materialise into a move this summer.

Their financial position means it would be a big surprise if the Whites are paying sizeable fees for any players. It would probably take a decent sum to bring Bove in too.

The versatile midfielder played 45 times for Roma last season, finding regular action in both Serie A and the Europa League. Going from that to the Championship would be a notable step down, even if Leeds United are able to attract eye-catching players.

It seems unlikely that Bove would make that move and that the Whites would be able to afford it. Perhaps only a deal would have been feasible in the event of promotion back to the Premier League.

The midfield ranks at Leeds United

Farke boasts some great talents in the middle of the park and in a summer where they need to raise funds, Leeds United could make some good money on their midfielders.

Archie Gray has been linked with high profile moves and of all the Whites’ players, he would probably go for the most. Ilia Gruev has had a £15m price tag slapped on his head amid Borussia Dortmund links while Ethan Ampadu could earn a good fee as well.

While there is a need to sell though, Farke will be determined to hold onto as many key players as he can.

If there are departures in the middle of the park, replacements will be sought. They’ll have to be shrewd signings to keep profits up though, so a move for someone of Bove’s calibre seems highly unlikely.
