Former Sassuolo midfielder, Tommaso Bianchi, is rumored to want to leave the Whites and move back to his birthplace, Italy.

Fans have taken to Twitter to express their feelings on the situation and, for the most part, there is an even divide in how the fans are taking it. Some are pleased to hear that some space would be freeing up on the talent stacked club, and others feel that Bianchi is too much of an asset to get rid of.

While with Sassuolo, Bianchi made 59 appearances and scored 4 goals, the best he had performed since his youth career with Piacenza. Bianchi was then signed to Modena on a 1 year loan for the 2013-2014 season. He made 41 appearances and scored 3 goals. He later signed a 3 year deal with the Whites in the summer of 2014, of which he still has 2 years remaining in his contract.

Bianchi is yet to make a statement on the matter, however, if he were to leave, Leeds boss Uwe Rosler would most likely have to do even more scouting than he already is.

Instead of looking for a striker, Rosler could end up having to pay good money for another midfielder or settle with his current set up. Tom Adeyemi already seems like a strong enough midfielder to lead by example.
