Ocampos is said to be a target for big names like Liverpool, but it seems Leeds could also be in the running to snap him up ahead of next season.

According to latest reports, Leeds hope they can lure Ocampos to Elland Road, but they are first aiming to get his asking price down.

Sevilla want as much as £62million for the 26-year-old, and Leeds are going to try and negotiate that fee down to something more realistic for them.

Marcelo Bielsa has done fine work with LUFC, but they’re still some way from being able to spend that kind of money on new players.
