Leeds: Romain Faivre offered huge money but still favours Premier League move

Leeds: Romain Faivre offered huge money but still favours Premier League move - Leeds United

A major update has emerged on Leeds United target Romain Faivre with a suspected huge offer from the Middle East, but the Stade Brest midfielder has his sights set on a move to England.

The 22-year-old is enjoying an excellent season in France, scoring five goals and registering four assists in Ligue 1.

Not only that, but he is averaging an amazing 2.6 dribbles per game in the league this season, which is more than Paris Saint-Germain superstar Angel Di Maria (1.5), playing a similar attacking midfield position in the same league.

Leeds have been linked with a move for the attacking midfielder in the past with reports calling him a long term target, but they may have to act fast if they want to sign him now.

Bid made for Leeds target Faivre

According to France Football [via Sport Witness], Saudi side Al-Hilal have offered Faivre a contract – one described as ‘pharaonic’ in the report, which we presume to mean an awful lot of money.

It is stated that the youngster still holds a ‘dream’ of moving to England, however, acting as a boost to Leeds’ hopes of snapping him up.

Transfer Tavern take

Marcelo Bielsa could arguably do with a little more guile in attacking midfield next season and Faivre seems to tick a number of boxes when it comes to being a strong addition in that area.

His aforementioned dribbling ability speaks for itself, adding more unpredictability to an already exciting Whites side, while he has also shown that he has end product, both in terms of scoring and creating.

At 22, he represents the long-term future, too, perhaps being identified as a replacement for the ageing Pablo Hernandez.
