Egzjan Alioski, not easy to pronounce and not many of us had heard of him until he was linked with the club last week. However after some research and views from people who do know him it would seem like Leeds may be on to something here, and it seems we are keen on doing a deal with Lugano.

The winger come striker is very highly rated in Switzerland and has been turning heads in the last year with his impressive performances. He scored and created goals in Switzerland and has attracted interest from the likes of Basel and Atalanta, two very reputable clubs in the European game. His ability to play on the shoulder and take players on has lead to him almost certainly getting a big move this summer. According to various sources, including Calcio Addict in Italy he will join Leeds United. Although this hasn’t been confirmed these reports from abroad have been bang on so far this summer.

Alioski is, like Samu Siaz is a player who could be persuaded by the money Leeds are apparently offering in wages. We already know that Samu Siaz has been potentially stolen from under the noses of clubs such as Eibar and Las Palmas in the Spanish top-tier due to Leeds offering him a significantly higher wage. This still may not be enough but in modern day football it does go a very long way to recruiting the players you desire. The Lugano head-coach is apparently keen for Alioski to move to his old club Atalanta but England has a great pull with the riches of the Premier League always one for players to think about.

More on this story as it develops one way or another this week.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
