Leeds have already smashed their transfer record to pay Valencia £27million for Spain striker Rodrigo at the weekend.
However, it seems, the Whites are prepared to break their transfer record for the second time this summer if they can land De Paul.
The 26-year-old is priced around £30million by the Serie A club, and Leeds are currently in talks to secure his signature.
The attacking midfielder scored seven goals and provided six assists in 34 league games this season for Udinese.
Leeds also secured the signing of defender Robin Koch yesterday. The Germany international joined from Freiburg.
