Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the owner of Premier League newcomers Leeds United football club Andrea Radrizzani has disclosed that the side are interested in signing AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paris-Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.

Radrizzani also hinted that the club did everything to sign the Swedish international Ibrahimovic in January before the player opted to go to Italy to join AC Milan.

Leeds United are celebrating promotion to the Premier League and will no doubt look to strengthen in the summer transfer market.

Although many would wonder if the club have the wherewithal to sign players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Edinson Cavani, the club owner insists that they will give it a try.

The club president however admitted that signing Edinson Cavani might be easier for them as the Uruguayan striker’s contract at Paris Saint-Germain ends this summer after seven years.
