Leeds United transfer target Hirving Lozano bids farewell to Napoli
Leeds United could have just received the boost they need to try to hijack the Los Angeles FC deal for Napoli attacker Hirving Lozano.
According to Mexican radio station W Deportes (27 July), the Whites are in talks to bring the Mexico international, 28, to Elland Road this summer.
Despite having a year left on his deal, Lozano has taken to Instagram on 1 August to seemingly bid farewell to the Serie A side and wish them well for the future.
While there are talks of the left winger moving to the United States, no fee has been agreed with any MLS club to sign him.
As he’s got a year left on his deal, Napoli would demand a certain amount in order to let him leave this summer.
Los Angeles FC appear to be the club that wants to sign him and it’s understood that the 28-year-old has agreed to personal terms with them.
Napoli seem to want a fee around £11.7million in order to part ways with the attacker and that could be something the MLS side cannot afford.
For Leeds in the Championship, it could perhaps be ideal and should Willy Gnonto leave, which will be for more than that amount anyway, they can sign Lozano as his replacement.
Much like Gnonto, the Mexican likes to start on the left and get into central attacking positions in which he can be supremely dangerous.
