Leeds United are close to the double signing of two starlets from Inter Milan, according to reports.

The duo in question are Facundo Colidio and Ryan Nolan, with several outlets in Italy claiming they are close to making the move to England.

Argentine striker Colidio, aged 19, was also a target for Newcastle United this summer, while Nolan is a 20-year-old Irish defender.

According to journalist Nicolo Schira, who works for Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport, the youngsters have both accepted offers from Leeds, leaving the two clubs to come to a final agreement.

Colidio came through the youth ranks at Boca Juniors before making his move to Europe, joining the Inter setup in 2017. The striker, who has been capped once at Under-20 level by Argentina, could help fill the void left by the imminent departure of Kemar Roofe, who is expected to join Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht.

Nolan made 42 appearances for Inter’s youth side last season, and would provide further cover at centre-back for Marcelo Bielsa – further helping to offset the loss of Pontus Jansson to Brentford this summer.
