Leeds United are in talks with Federico Viviani after AS Roma gave Leeds permission to speak to the midfielder.
Leeds are hoping to complete a loan move for the 22-year-old who has spent the past two seasons on loan from the Olympic Stadium.
Viviani has made six appearances for AS Roma but he hasn`t featured for the club since April 2012 after making his debut in December 2011.
The Italy under-21 international spent much of the 2012/13 season with Padova on loan where he made 22 appearances. He spent the first half of last season on loan at Pascara where he made six appearances before being recalled by AS Roma so that he could join Latina on loan for the remainder of the season.
Latina are also keen on signing Viviani after he helped them finish third in Serie B, making 21 appearances during his loan spell.
Two players linked with Leeds in recent weeks have signed for other clubs today. Rochdale striker Scott Hogan has completed a move to Brentford and AC Milan defender Rodrgio Ely has signed for Serie B side Avellino.
