Pundit Kevin Campbell believes Leeds United should move to sign Hertha Berlin star Matheus Cunha this summer [Football Insider].
The Lowdown: Leeds United get set for 2021/22
Looking towards 2021/22, many Whites supporters will be desperate to see how Marcelo Bielsa goes about improving on their impressive ninth placed finish last term.
Another reported pursuit emanating out of Elland Road circles has been that of 22-year-old Cunha, who is reportedly available for a valuation of £30 million [Daily Express].
Would Cunha be a good signing for Leeds United?
The Latest: Campbell backs Whites to make Cunha swoop
In an interview with Football Insider, ex-Everton striker Campbell has been very complimentary in his assessment of Cunha’s price-tag, stating: “That would be good value for money.
“When you look at the quality of player, his statistical return and his age, it is cheap money. Let’s be honest, it is cheap money.
“If he comes to the Premier League and has a good season you are putting £20million on that price tag straight away.
“I think the way Leeds play would suit him. He would get assists and goals in that system I think.
“He would fast be a coveted commodity. I think it would be great business.” [Football Insider]
The Verdict: Cunha would be an astute signing for Leeds United
All things considered; the 51-year-old pundit makes a compelling case for Leeds United to bring the talent to Yorkshire.
In 2020/21, the winger enjoyed a productive campaign at the heart of the Hertha Berlin attack, registering 16 goal contributions in 28 appearances; eight goals and eight assists [Transfermarkt].
Furthermore, his propensity to create danger for opponents bore fruit throughout the year, as he completed three dribbles on average per game; the most in the Hertha Berlin squad [WhoScored].
Moving further into pre-season, Leeds should look to snap up the talented ace – his versatility and threat both as a goalscorer and creator could work wonders in Bielsa’s fast-flowing system.
