As a result, the Spanish outfit are looking to balance the books, and have already sold Ferran Torres, Francis Coquelin and Dani Parejo in recent weeks.
Rodrigo could be next, and Sky Sports’ Gianluca Di Marzio believes Leeds have a firm interest in the 29-year-old.
His greatest return of goals came in the 17/18 campaign; while Paul Heckingbottom was holding the reins at Elland Road, Rodrigo was on his way to scoring 19 league and cup goals.
Another transfer line here from @DiMarzio— James Marshment (@marshyleeds) August 20, 2020
He states Victor Orta is working on a deal to bring Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno to Leeds, with Marcelo Bielsa giving the transfer the green light.

Rodrigo, who has two years left on his contract, might be available for a cut-price fee due to Valencia’s off-the-pitch problems.
A member of Spain’s 2018 World Cup squad, Rodrigo is blessed with blistering pace that could prove appealing to Marcelo Bielsa.
