Leeds United are thought to be keen on bringing West Brom star Matheus Pereira to Elland Road this summer.
The Lowdown: Leeds fans wanted him signed
Pereira has been part of a Baggies side who have failed to remain in the Premier League after they came up alongside the Whites last season, with their relegation back to the Championship confirmed on Sunday.
The 25-year-old has starred at The Hawthorns, though, scoring 10 times and registering five assists in 31 league appearances.
His display against Southampton last month caught the eye of some Whites supporters, who urged the club to move for the Brazilian in the upcoming window.
Should Leeds make a bid for Pereira?
Yes, no brainer!
No, look elsewhere!
The Latest: Orta and co not the only ones keen
So much interest from top sides is perhaps no surprise given the quality the Brazilian has shown in such a poor side this term.
The Verdict: Orta should try his luck
Victor Orta, who is of course the main man when it comes to transfer dealings at Elland Road, should make a move for Pereira ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Leeds hero Pablo Hernandez looks set to move on in the summer, so Pereira could come in to seriously rival the likes of Rodrigo and Tyler Roberts in a number 10 role.
Should Pereira move to Yorkshire, that may also then allow Rodrigo to rival Patrick Bamford as a starting striker, with the Brazilian occupying a position behind the forward.
He could well come at a club-record price, but he’s managed to produce two brilliant personal seasons in England now, and could fit into Marcelo Bielsa’s attack-minded squad with ease, as he is also capable of playing on either wing.
