Leeds United fans on Twitter are incredibly excited by the prospect of signing Facundo Colidio from Inter.

The Whites have been linked with a move for the Argentine forward in recent weeks.

Reports in Italy state that the striker would cost between €8m and €10m, but many supporters believe he will be well worth it.

The teenager is highly rated as Inter signed him from Boca Juniors for a reported fee of €7m at the age of 17.

Despite the sizable pricetag for someone his age, he hasn’t been given a chance at San Siro. He’s yet to make his first-team debut for the Italian giants as he has been playing for their youth teams for the past couple of seasons.

The Whites are clearly quite impressed by what they have seen from him at that level though as they’re apparently set to fork out a good fee for the 19-year-old.

Many supporters believe that he will be the next big thing. One fan stated that he is special, while another said that he is too good to be playing Championship football.

Perhaps this amount of praise is too much for a striker who has scored just 21 goals in 63 games at youth level, but that hasn’t stopped United fans from getting carried away.

Plenty of supporters think very highly of the Argentine. Despite Phil Hay saying he could be a player for the U23s in his recent Q&A, a few fans claimed that he is too good for that level of football.

One member of the fanbase even called him one of the best young players in Europe.
