Could a move to Leeds be in line for the 23-year-old striker?

A number of English sides have been linked with a move for Petagna in the past, including Spurs – who were said to be looking to sign the player as a back-up to Harry Kane – and Leicester City. Petagna joined SPAL on loan from Atalanta last summer and scored 16 goals in Serie A to help his side comfortably avoid relegated.

He is also believed to have drawn admiring glances from Besiktas, Eintracht Frankfurt and an unnamed Russian club, but TMW are reporting that it is Leeds who have made a 15m euro offer to SPAL. Petagna has joined the Ferrera-based club permanently after his loan deal from Atalanta due to a clause to do with avoiding relegation.

However, despite the big money bid arriving from the West Yorkshire side, it’s explained that SPAL are holding out for a whopping 25m euros for the former AC Milan academy man.
