The Lowdown: Maupay to Forest?
The Frenchman, who was hailed as ‘quality’ by Irish broadcaster Nathan Murphy, appears to be on the verge of ending his three-year association with the Seagulls.
However, a transfer is yet to be announced, and it looks like there could be a late twist involving the 91-goal forward.
The Latest: Leeds linked with Maupay
90min shared an update regarding Maupay’s future on Tuesday, with a number of clubs looking to hijack Nottingham Forest’s proposed move for the Frenchman.
They claimed that both Everton and Fulham have made contact over a potential deal and that Leeds are ‘keeping a close eye on the situation’ due to Patrick Bamford’s recent injury scare.
The Verdict: Unlikely
Maupay has scored more goals against the Whites than any other club (four in seven appearances) but has a history with Leeds supporters, having once shared a provocative Instagram post of him celebrating a goal against the Whites in front of their fans.
He appears to be on the verge of joining Forest, so a surprise move to Yorkshire does seem unlikely at this stage.
Happy with Orta's business so far?
I'm not so sure!
Leeds could do with a forward like Maupay to provide competition to Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt, but it looks as if they may go down the route of bringing in a young exciting attacker in Wilfried Gnonto.
