Leeds Owner Sets Sights On Big Name Signings For Premier League Return

Leeds United's return to English football's top flight has owner Andrea Radrizzani setting his sights on some big name signings.

Leeds were crowned Championship winners over the weekend, sending them back to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years with silverware.

Radrizzani admitted that acquiring the services of Zlatan Ibrahimovic would not be easy. The club tried and failed to sign him earlier this year.

"Ibrahimovic will certainly be difficult," Radrizzani told Sky Sports Italia

“We tried to sign him in January, but he chose to join Milan and the deal vanished.

“Now I think it’s too late, the intensity of English football is different.”

However, he was more optimistic about Edinson Cavani. The 33-year-old Uruguayan is out of contract after leaving PSG.

"In addition to his quality, Cavani could contribute with his physicality and adapt here, but I’ve never talked about him with the coach," he said.

"Having said that, we’ve certainly thought about him and we’ll see, given he’s still available on a free transfer."
