Nandez had an impressive campaign with the Italian club last year and he should prove to be a quality addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s midfield.
The Whites will need to add more depth to their squad and signings like Nandez will help them build on their impressive campaign last year.
The 25-year-old Uruguayan international could partner Kalvin Phillips in the midfield next year and he could help disrupt the opposition play with his tireless pressing.
The Cagliari midfielder is an impressive long-range passer as well. Furthermore, he likes to take players on and he will add more drive to the Leeds midfield.
