Leeds United are reportedly still following Standard Liege midfielder Nicolas Raskin ahead of a possible move.
The Lowdown: Raskin profiled
Primarily a central midfielder, Raskin can also play in holding and attacking roles and is valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt.
The Latest: Whites ‘following’
They claimed that Standard Liege will be forced to sell the central midfielder over the coming months, with Leeds ‘following’ him closely.
Raskin is thought to be held ‘in high esteem’ by Elland Road chiefs, who could now make their move following this development.
The Verdict: Smart move?
Leeds appear to be closing in on Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca, however, they could still do with further reinforcements in that area ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge, with Victor Orta working tirelessly in recent weeks.
Therefore, a move for Raskin, who is valued at just €5m by Standard Liege, could prove to be a smart one in the long run. He already has plenty of senior experience in his native country, is extremely versatile and has time on his side to improve.
Raskin also wouldn’t be under any major pressure to become a star in Yorkshire straight away, so he could be an ideal squad player for Marsch.
