Leeds United sports director Nicola Salerno says the club have a good chance of landing Roma midfielder Federico Viviani.
Leeds have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old who impressed in the second half of the season whilst on loan with Italian Serie B side Latina.
Speaking in La Bottega del Calciofilo, Salerno said, “We have good chances to take Viviani, but the deal isn`t done yet”.
The agent of Viviani, Giampiero Pocetta, has also admitted that the midfielder could be interested in a move to Elland Road. “Leeds would is a very prestigious club for Federico,”Pocetta told La Bottega del Calciofilo.
Viviani has spent much of the last two seasons out on loan having spells at Serie B sides Padova, Pescara and Latina. Last season he made 21 appearances for Latina following his arrival in January, helping the side finish third.
The defensive midfielder has also represented Italy at three-levels up to under-21 and he was part of the training squad for the full national side picked by the then international boss Cesare Prandelli in March.
