According to a report by Fichajes, three La Liga clubs are interested in signing Samu Saiz from Leeds United this summer.
Samu Saiz is one of the most naturally gifted attackers at Elland Road, and his loss would be tough for the Yorkshire side to take. However, if a big enough offer is made for the Spaniard, then Marcelo Bielsa may be forced into a sale.
The 27-year-old brings flair and attacking verve to the Whites going forward, as well as posing a goal threat and providing goalscoring opportunities for his teammates.
If Leeds do lose the forward this summer, then they’ll need to act quickly to see him adequately replaced.
Finding a target capable of replicating Saiz’s game, within Leeds’ budget, is tough. However, there are options out there available.
Che Adams, currently plying his trade with Birmingham City, would be a great signing to bring in should Saiz depart during this transfer window.
Adams, who is valued at £2.25 million by Transfermarkt, wouldn’t come cheap. However, any sale of Saiz would likely raise enough funds to cover the majority of the fee that Birmingham would demand.
Adams enjoyed a decent season in the second tier last time out, finding the net on 5 occasions and laying on 2 assists for the Blues. In the previous campaign he hit even greater heights though, notching 7 Championship strikes and providing a further 6 assists.
With Birmingham a club seemingly going nowhere fast, and struggling to get business done this summer, a move could be what’s needed for Adams to get back to his best.
As part of this Leeds side, the 22-year-old could become the creative, goalscoring influence that the Whites need in order to sustain a genuine promotion push.
