The Lowdown: Leeds keen on Terrier
The Whites are still yet to bring in a new centre-forward this summer to rival Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt.
Plenty of attackers have been linked though, including Terrier – Phil Hay said that Leeds like the 25-year-old Rennes front man, who would cost in excess of £30m.
European football writer Tim Williams called the forward ‘phenomenal‘ following a fine 2021/22 campaign where he netted 21 Ligue 1 goals in 37 games, and Jacobs has now been having his say on a possible transfer.
The Latest: Jacobs’ comments
Talking to GiveMeSport, journalist Jacobs said that Leeds ‘really like’ Terrier and may decide to ‘ramp up their efforts’ to sign him with the new season just days away.
“This is a player that Leeds really like. It’s not as advanced as Kalimuendo at this point, but we’re getting to that stage now where Leeds don’t want to start the season over-reliant on Bamford, and as a consequence, they may well ramp up their efforts on Terrier.”
The Verdict: Gamble
Terrier may have just come off the back of a free-scoring campaign in France, however, a £30m+ move, which would be a record for Leeds, could be a gamble.
Happy with Orta's business so far?
I'm not so sure!
Going after a young target like Arnaud Kalimuendo or proven Premier League quality in Che Adams would be a cheaper and potentially smarter choice, with Leeds’ summer outlay likely to surpass £100m in one window for the first time in their history.
