Leeds United could look to start negotiations over a potential move for Sasa Lukic after the World Cup, with the midfielder set to leave Torino in one of the coming windows, according to a report from Calciomercato.
January is going to be a crucial window for Jesse Marsch. The jury is still out on what the Whites can do this season. But there is absolutely no question that further reinforcements are required.
The priorities are surely the left-back and striker positions. But it seems that Leeds also have a desire to bolster their ranks in the middle of the park.
Leeds could start Lukic negotiations after World Cup
According to a report from Calciomercato, Leeds are battling with Roma for the signature of Lukic. And it is claimed that he is set to leave his club in January or in the summer.

Interestingly, while the report adds that the Whites are yet to make a bid for the 26-year-old, they are monitoring him closely at the World Cup and could look to open negotiations with him after the tournament.
Although it is not a priority, Leeds would be making the right call by trying to sign another central midfielder.
Tyler Adams has arguably been our player of the season so far. And Marc Roca has been outstanding following his own move to Elland Road.
However, there is not a lot of depth in the middle of the park. Adam Forshaw has hardly featured this season. And Darko Gyabi is a work in progress following his arrival.
Lukic has been excellent for Torino. And he has featured against both Brazil and Cameroon in the World Cup. At 26, he should be at the peak of his powers.
He is an ‘excellent‘ player who is able to play in a number of roles as a midfielder. So he would be an incredibly smart signing if Leeds can bring him in.
