There has been much speculation in the media about Leeds United’s young stars gleaming in the eyes of the Premier League teams. Now it also seems that their Italian players are garnering interest from their homeland with Ascoli reported to be interested in two players.
In reports eminating from italian websites Tuttomercatoweb and Tuttoascolicalcio it seems that Leeds’ Italian duo Mirco Antenucci and Tommaso Bianchi are wanted by Italian Serie B side Ascoli. Tuttomercatoweb hint at Ascoli interest in Antenucci saying, “[the Leeds and Ascoli business may not be limited to only Mirko Antenucci” with Tuttoascolicalcio adding that "the arrival of both looks increasingly possible.” Tuttoascolicalcio also touch on the injury troubles suffered by Bianchi, highlighting his woes but also add that "the worst seems to be over with Bianchi [who]should only [hav[have to]in match fitness.”
With Leeds having a strong midfield, what with the additions of Tom Adeyemi and Liam Bridcutt complementing the guile and potential of Lewis Cook, Stuart Dallas and Alex Mowatt, Bianchi’s position is somewhat down the pecking order. Additional to this is that with Evans’ new formation, Antenucci is going to find game time hard to come by, even though he has five goals so far this season.
