Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat has admitted that clubs in England, Italy and Germany are keen on Leeds United target Nicolas Gonzalez. 

Gonzalez is Stuttgart's key striker and hit the back of the net 14 times in the 2.Bundesliga last season as the club won promotion to the top tier.


Stuttgart are not looking to lose the Argentine, but the player wants to leave and has been linked with a host of clubs, including Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds.

Mislintat admits there is interest in Gonzalez, even from within Germany, however no specific request for the striker has yet arrived.

"I see serious interest coming from both Italy and England, including a club from Germany", Mislintat told German news agency DPA.

"There has not yet been a specific request", he added.

Stuttgart have Gonzalez under contract until the summer of 2023 and have slapped a €20m asking price on his head.
