The lowdown: Career so far
Signed from fellow French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon for £10.8m in 2020 (Transfermarkt), the 25-year-old has spent his entire career in his homeland, having come through the ranks at Lille.
The former France youth international has directly contributed to 45 goals in 83 appearances for his current employers and was recently tipped for a call-up to the senior national team by Thierry Henry ahead of the World Cup later this year.
Having previously been heavily linked with FA Cup winners Liverpool, a fresh claim has emerged suggesting that Leeds are among the leading suitors to land Terrier…
The latest: ‘Priority’ target for Leeds
As per L’Equipe, Leeds have made the 25-year-old a ‘priority’ target in order to bolster Jesse Marsch’s attacking options.
It’s claimed that Terrier is ‘courted by several English clubs’ including West Ham, after the Londoners signed defender Nayef Aguerd from Rennes earlier in the summer.
The report added that the French club will want offers of ‘at least’ €40m (£34m) in order to sanction the sale of the man who was described as ‘really underrated’ by One Football editor and writer Phil Costa following a hat-trick against Saint-Etienne.
The verdict: Marquee signing
Following the significant departures of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, Leeds’ director of football Victor Orta has wasted little time in replenishing the ranks at Elland Road with the signings of Tyler Adams, Rasmus Kristensen, Brenden Aaronson, Luis Sinisterra, Marc Roca and Darko Gyabi.
However, still on a positive footing when it comes to net spend based on the business which has been completed, and with Jack Harrison still being linked with a move away, there remains room for at least one big expenditure during the ongoing transfer window, and Terrier looks ideally suited to fit the bill.
Capable of playing across the frontline, the Frenchman scored 21 times and provided seven assists in 45 appearances across all competitions last season. He earned an outstanding 7.30 Sofascore rating whilst winning 4.5 duels, making 1.1 key passes and finding the target with 1.3 shots out of 2.4 on average per game – highlighting a proficiency in front of goal and a well-rounded overall package.
Sharing a close stylistic likeness with such renowned attackers as Sadio Mane, Christopher Nkunku and Hirving Lozano (FBRef), adding the exciting marksman to Marsch’s ranks squad would certainly be a sensational and worthwhile coup for the Yorkshire club.
