Leeds United is looking to add more players in order to provide depth to the squad. Marcelo Bielsa has requested the club for more additions despite landing six new players this summer. The main focus of Bielsa is to challenge for the European qualification spot. With the newly introduced UEFA Europa Conference league, that dream of playing in a European competition looks more realistic than ever.
According to a report from Tutto Mercato Web, Leeds United will soon submit an offer for Adolfo Gaich. The Argentinian was even tracked by Leeds United during the last season. He caught a lot of attention after his breakout season during his stint at San Lorenzo. He scored eight goals in 28 appearances for the club.
A lot of offers arrived for him during the last summer but out of all the clubs he chose to join CSKA Moscow. The 22-year-old has had a really tough time in Moscow as he could hardly find any form. After playing 13 games for the Russian side he was finally loaned out to the Serie A side Benevento Calcio during the January transfer window.
Though he made 15 appearances out of which he started in 9 but Benevento Calcio got relegated which closed any door of a permanent move. CSKA Moscow are desperate to sell the player after just one year and even the Argentinian wants to leave.
Marcelo Bielsa wants to bring him to Elland Road but the player has set his heart towards moving to Italy. While CSKA Moscow have already waited for a month but no Italian club has come knocking. Leeds United are the only club said to be interested in him. And if that stays for some more days then the Moscow based club will definitely sell him to Leeds United.
The move could revive the footballing career of Adolfo Gaich since Marcelo Bielsa is known to bring the best out of young players. Not only that, both Bielsa and Gaich are from Argentina which could help Gaich settle quickly at Leeds United.
