Zan Benedicic, a dynamic attacking midfielder who plays for AC Milan, has suggested heavily that he is on the cusp of a transfer to Leeds United, as reported by La Bottega del Calciofilo.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to Leeds repeatedly in recent weeks, but there were suggestions that he was set to stay with the Italian giants in lieu of a move to West Yorkshire. Leeds need significant additions this summer, especially after the collapse of their move for AS Roma’s Federico Viviani.
An interview with the player has implied that he is very close to a transfer to the Yorkshire giants, with his goal being to play significant first team football upon arrival at Elland Road.
Benedicic said: “We are waiting for all of the documents and the last confirmations, then I will sign.
“I am at one step away from becoming a Leeds player.
“[My goal is] to achieve a place in the starting eleven.”
Leeds struggled to a 2-2 draw with Chesterfield at the weekend, playing poorly and only scoring their goals from the penalty spot, two of very few shots they had on target in the match. Rodolph Austin scored both.
