Leeds: Whites confident of signing Romain Perraud

Leeds: Whites confident of signing Romain Perraud -Leeds United

Leeds United are reportedly confident of signing Stade Brest defender Romain Perraud this summer, as they look to bring in a new left-back.

The Lowdown: New left-back required

Marcelo Bielsa will likely be eyeing up a number of new signing in the coming months, but left-back is an area that definitely requires an addition.

With Ezgjan Alioski set to move on to pastures new, there are a lack of options there for Leeds, with a host of players linked with a move to Elland Road.

Perraud is one of those players, having impressed in Ligue One this season, scoring three goals and registering seven assists for Brest.

The Latest: Perraud could join Leeds

According to Football Insider, Leeds are ‘confident’ of getting their man in the summer, with a source claiming that “encouraging talks” have taken place.

It is also stated that Bielsa is keen on signing on a midfielder and a striker, in order to bolster his squad.

The Verdict: Ideal addition for Whites

Perraud could be a great signing for Leeds, with his aforementioned quality in the final third likely to appeal to the attack-minded Bielsa.

His seven assists would rank Perraud third in the Whites squad this term, behind only Raphinha and Jack Harrison, with his overall ten goal contributions putting him level with Leeds’ player of the season, Stuart Dallas.

He has also averaged 1.7 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game in the league this season, however, showing that he can excel defensively, too.

At 23, Perraud would also represent a long-term acquisition – someone who could shine at left-back for many years to come, rather than a stop-gap option like the previously linked Patrick van Aanholt, who is 30 years of age.
