Leeds: Whites eye Omar Colley - Leeds United

Leeds United are keen on signing Sampdoria defender Omar Colley this summer.

That’s according to a report from Club Doria, translated on TEAMtalk, who claim that the Serie A side are willing to cash in on the Gambia international, despite recently signing a new contract.

Newcastle and West Ham also keen

It's quiz time! You've just got to tell us how much these Leeds players cost when they joined the club. Let's start with a nice easy one - club-record signing Rodrigo...

Leeds aren’t the only English side keen on the £30,000-a-week centre-back, though. The report adds that both Newcastle and West Ham are interested in Colley ahead of the upcoming summer window.

Colley, who has made 20 Serie A appearances this season, is valued at just £4.05m but is under contract until 2025.

Transfer Tavern take

Statistically, Colley could prove to be a solid signing by the Whites.

As per WhoScored, the 28-year-old has averaged a league match rating of 6.81 this season. That’s higher than two of Leeds’ summer signings in the same position, Diego Llorente (6.78) and Robin Koch (6.59).

It’s also a better rating than Whites youngster Pascal Struijk (6.78), however, along with Liam Cooper, Leeds appear fairly well-stocked at centre-back.

It seems as if Marcelo Bielsa likes having a small squad, so having five centre-back options could be too many for the Argentine ahead of the 2021/22 season.
