Leeds tried to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani in January, claims owner Andrea Radrizzani

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has revealed he tried to sign both Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the January transfer window.

The Elland Road side sought to bring in a new striker during the winter window after Arsenal cut short Eddie Nketiah's loan spell, leaving Patrick Bamford as their only option.

Ibrahimovic was available as a free agent after the end of his time at La Galaxy, which came to a conclusion in November.
