Three Italian clubs have enquired about signing Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, according to a report.
Silvestri missed just one game through suspension this season with 48 appearances and kept nine clean sheets in all competition to help Leeds finish 13th in the Championship.
The Daily Mail claim that the 25-year-old is now attracting the attentions of three unnamed Italian clubs after two solid years in England.
Silvestri is a nailed-on starter for Leeds and although he endured a few hiccups this season, he is still the established number one Elland Road.
The stopper joined from Chievo Verona in 2014 and has two years left to run on his current contract with Leeds.
Leeds are thought to be in the market for a striker and a reserve goalkeeper this summer despite the fact teenage stopper Bailey Farrell-Peacock signed a fresh contract with the club last week.
The Whites have been linked with a loan deal for Juventus’ youngster Francesco Anacoura as they look to bring in a more experienced third choice goalkeeper.
Ross Turnbull is due to return from long-term injury next season and will be expected to resume his duties as back-up to Silvestri.
