Leeds United are reportedly showing genuine interest in signing Brest winger Romain Faivre, but other big clubs are also interested.
The Lowdown: Past interest in Faivre
Marcelo Bielsa is expected to make additions to his squad in the summer transfer window in order to ensure that they keep improving next season.
The Latest: Leeds in the race for winger
Both Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund are also in the mix, along with AC Milan, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach.
It is claimed that Leeds will have to pay between €15m and €20m (£12.95m-£17.26m) to acquire the Frenchman’s signature.
The Verdict: Worth a punt?
Faivre might not the most high-profile name with whom Leeds have been linked, but his statistics suggest that he could thrive in this Whites team.
On top of his aforementioned 11 goal contributions in the league, he also averages 2.6 dribbles per game, highlighting his direct nature. That’s comfortably more than any Leeds player in the Premier League in 2020/21, with Raphinha (1.9) leading the way, going to show what an exciting acquisition he could be.
Indeed, the Brazilian was a left-field £17m signing from Ligue 1 outfit Rennes and has gone on to excel in Yorkshire, so the Whites could strike a similarly successful note with another raid on the French top flight if they sign Faivre.
In other news, one pundit has tipped a Leeds attacker to leave the club at the end of the season. Find out who it is here.
