San Lorenzo are unaware of any interest from Leeds United in striker Adolfo Gaich, according to reports from Ole.
The 21-year-old has recently been attracting interest from various clubs, as per reports from Italy, with the likes of Inter Milan, Atalanta, Leeds United and West Brom being credited with an interest in the striker.
Gaich has scored five goals in 12 games for San Lorenzo this season, and has also been capped at senior international level for Argentina.
The striker’s agent recently revealed that Gaich’s preferred destination is the Serie A, and that he has a release clause worth around £12m in his contract.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side were said to be interested in signing the player, but fresh reports have poured cold water on that speculation.
Ole claim that San Lorenzo are unaware of any interest from Leeds, Inter or Atalanta in the player. They report, however, that Club Brugge have held talks ahead of a potential move.
Bielsa will be keen to strengthen his squad as his side gear up for a potential return to the Premier League, with the Whites sitting top of the Championship with nine games remaining.
Gaich looks a real talent, but whether he is prolific enough to fire in the goals in the Premier League is another question.
Bielsa is likely to keep his unwavering faith in Patrick Bamford if they reach the top-flight, whilst Jean-Kevin Augustin could become a permanent Leeds player should they go up.
Whether that means Leeds need another striker or not remains to be seen.
