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.
Bid made for Leeds target Faivre
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.
In other news, Marcelo Bielsa has provided an important update on a key Leeds player. Find out who it is here.
