Leeds United are reportedly interested in the signing of Nigerian attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze after getting promotion back to the Premier League.
United did not only get Premier League ticket, but they won the Championship title in style with them beating visiting Charlton 4-0 in their last game of the season.
Now, the club will give their players little break before they will start their preparation for their campaign in the 2020/21 Premier League term.
Marcelo Bielsa who is the coach of Leeds United knows that the Premier League is big and he has now identified Nigerian star Eberechi Eze as one of his targets.
And since Eze and his teammates at Queens Park Rangers did not qualify for the Premier League, the Nigerian will surely want to grab the chance of playing in the topflight.
According to UK Sun, Leeds first declared their interest in Eze in January this year and told QPR that they would come in with a firm bid if they get promotion.
Their wish has however been fulfilled and they will now have to go into battle with Crystal Palace, Tottenham and West Ham United for the signing of Eze.
Eze who scored 13 goals and provided eight assists at the just concluded season in English second division is valued at £20 million by QPR.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Spanish La Liga giants Sevilla are reportedly interested in the signing of Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem after the end of his loan spell at Leganes.
The 23-year-old Nigerian footballer played for Leganes at the just concluded Spanish La Liga 2019/20 season in which the club relegated to the second division.
But despite the relegation of Leganes from the first division, the Nigerian is rated among the best players for the season considering his superb performances.
Chidozie Awaziem is expected to make a return back to his parent club FC Porto in Portugal so as to join them for the preparation of next season.
