Leeds want to bring in Massimiliano Allegri as head coach.
Allegri has been without a club since May 2019 after leaving Juventus.
There has been reported interest in the 53-year-old from Chelsea, Manchester United, PSG, Roma and Napoli.
English club Leeds have also already been in contact with the former Juventus coach, reports The Times.
They’ve talked to him about the idea of replacing Marcelo Bielsa if he decides to leave the club at the end of the season.
Bielsa’s contract with Leeds expires this season. The team is 12th in the EPL with 36 points after 28 games.
