Forestieri would be a very decent signing! Watched him a few times, looked class! Him, Antenucci, Wood & Erwin… Good Options! #LUFC

Not convinced with Forestieri and his goal scoring record but we need bodies so I won't complain if it happens #lufc

The majority of fans seem very excited by this. What a coup it would be for Leeds if they could complete this signing. Forestieri is a very talented player and could probably slot into any first-team in the Championship.
