Leeds United have been linked with a move for Sasa Lukic and lead the race to sign the 26-year-old from Serie A club Torino.

According to a report from Torino Granata, Sasa Lukic is on Leeds United’s radar. And the Whites are the front-runners to secure the services of the Serbian midfielder, valued at €15 million by Serie A club Torino.

The 26-year-old has a contract with Torino until the summer of 2024, and the Serie A club are prepared to sell him if he does not sign a contract extension. Such a situation has captured the interest of several clubs, including Leeds United.

Leeds have had a disappointing campaign so far, and Jesse Marsch needs to improve his squad during the January transfer window to turn things around. Lukic, who has also emerged on the radar of Manchester United, could be a quality acquisition for the Whites. The Serb could be signed for a fee of around €15 million. Leeds certainly have the means to afford that kind of money for Lukic.

The 26-year-old has been a key player for Torino, and he has four goals and an assist to his name across all competitions for club and country this season. He will be hoping to make his mark in English football if the move to Leeds goes through in January.

The Serbian international can play as a central midfielder as well as a box-to-box midfielder. He will add goals and drive to the Leeds midfield. Furthermore, he will help out defensively as well. The player is at the peak of his career right now and a move to the Premier League could allow him to take the next step and showcase his qualities at a higher level.

AS Roma, Inter Milan and Lazio are keen on signing the player as well. But Leeds are leading the chase for the midfielder. Lukic has already proven himself in Serie A, and a move to England is likely to be far more appealing for the player.

It remains to be seen whether he is prepared to join a relegation-threatened side midway through the season. Leeds have an impressive squad, but they are not quite at the level of Lukic’s other suitors – Inter, Roma or Lazio. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops now.
