Leeds United’s interest in signing Stade Brest left-back Romain Perraud has ‘gone cold’, according to Leeds Live journalist Beren Cross.
The Lowdown: Leeds show Perraud interest
The Whites are likely to need a new left-back before the start of next season, with Ezgjan Alioski expected to move on to pastures new.
The Latest: Move looks to be off
It looks as though the chances of the Frenchman heading to Elland Road are slim, however, with Cross taking to Leeds Live to claim that Leeds’ interest has waned.
It is stated that Alioski has a contract offer on the table, but it is unknown whether or not he will sign on the dotted line.
The Verdict: Focus on other alternatives
Perraud looks a strong option to come in this summer based on the impressive end product he produced last term, so it is a blow to see Leeds’ interest cool, but it is now time to concentrate is bringing in someone else.
That is, of course, assuming Alioski leaves, which is not yet a formality.
Someone like Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico looks a good alternative, possessing a wealth of experience that has seen him win 30 caps for Argentina. The Eredivisie star has been linked with a move to Elland Road and possesses more high level experience than both Perraud and Alioski, having played 22 times in the Champions League.
