Reports in Italy suggest that Leeds United want Filippo Inzaghi as their next manager

Leeds United have reportedly approached Filippo Inzaghi over the possibility of replacing Paul Heckingbottom at Elland Road.

Italian publication Corriere di Bologna reports - out of the blue - that the Whites are keen on luring the Italian over to Yorkshire this summer.

Inzaghi is currently in charge of the promotion-pushing Serie B side Venezia, but his contract expires in a couple of weeks.

Other reports in his homeland state that he’s actually in contention to replace Roberto Donadoni at Bologna, with an agreement believed to already be in place.

However, the Italian top-flight side could now face competition in the form of Leeds, who are currently deciding whether to stick or twist with boss Heckingbottom.

Heckingbottom replaced Thomas Christiansen earlier this year after leaving his post at Barnsley.

The 40-year-old went on to win only four of the club’s remaining 16 matches, meaning the Whites finished their eighth consecutive Championship campaign down in 13th.

The Next Leeds United Manager Market has thrown up a few shocks in recent weeks, with former Reading boss Jaap Stam previously installed as the surprise favourite for a job that is not even up-for-grabs yet, while Everton-linked Marco Silva also featured prominently in the market.

Could there now be something in the Corriere di Bologna reports linking Inzaghi with the club?

Maybe, maybe not.

Most likely not, in all honesty.

However, for the time being at least Inzaghi will be 100% focused on leading Venezia up to the Italian top-flight. His troops, who finished the Serie B league season in 5th, lock horns with Perugia on Sunday in the preliminary round, and if successful they will go on to play Palermo in the semi-finals.
