Leeds United have been linked with a move for Inter Milan full back Alvaro Pereira, according to interlive.it.

The 29 year old has spent the second half of the season on loan at South American side Estudiantes de La Plata where he has struggled to make multiple appearances. The attacking minded full back however, has made 65 appearances for the Uruguay national side, including his selection for the 2014 World Cup, where he was struck unconscious against England but carried on playing and completed the full 90 minutes.

Pereira was linked with a move to Leeds in the last transfer window but the Whites missed out on his signature.

Inter Milan signed the Uruguayan from Porto in 2012 for a fee of around £7.3 million, so Leeds would most likely have to pay for a loan fee on top of the wages to sign him.

Whilst the Whites are currently under a transfer embargo they are confident of getting this removed by the time July arrives. Owner Massimo Cellino’s ban expired at the weekend and the club are waiting for Football League approval to allow the Italian to re-join the board.
