Nandez has been fielded across various midfield positions during his time as a Cagliari midfielder. Versatility is a precious asset for a footballer.

The 25-year-old is strong in the tackle and a positive driving force with the ball, traits Bielsa clearly places value in.

As per the report, Leeds are ready to make their move for Nandez, in an operation which could cost as much as €36M.

It’s a considerable amount of cash to be paying, but if Nandez is the man Bielsa wants, Leeds may well deem it a worthwhile investment.
