Leeds are unlikely to be busy in the January transfer window, but they are believed to be keeping close tabs on Fiorentina’s Erick Pulgar.
That’s according to Italian media outlet CalcioMercato, who claim Marcelo Bielsa’s side are involved in a three-way tug of war with Real Betis and Sevilla for the 27-year-old midfielder.

Florence based newspaper La Nazione have also reported on the Whites’ interest in Pulgar, who was earlier this month described as a ‘solid citizen’ by South American football expert Tim Vickery.
“Obviously part of the connection there is Bielsa is a former coach of the Chilean national team,” said Vickery on talkSPORT.
“Pulgar is a tall, defensive midfielder – a solid citizen.
“In fact in the last couple of in Italy with Fiorentina he’s shown that he’s got a goal in him as well – ghosting into the box and he’s quite good in the air.
“He’s not going to be a world beater, but if Leeds do bring him across I think he’s bring a bit of solidity to the centre of their midfield.”
Pulgar is valued at around the £22million mark, with reports also indicating that Leeds would be interested in an initial loan deal.
Bielsa declared himself ‘totally satisfied’ with £100m worth of transfer business Leeds conducted last summer, with Rodrigo, Robin Koch, Diego Llorente and Raphinha all brought to Elland Road.

It’s understood Leeds won’t be splashing the cash again this month, although it has been suggested Rangers winger Ryan Kent could move to Elland Road ‘if the price is right’.
The Whites were also interested in Mainz forward Jean-Philippe Mateta but he has now completed a move to Crystal Palace, initially on loan with an option to buy.
