A transfer insider has claimed that Leeds United are one of a number of clubs eyeing a move for Matheus Cunha in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Leeds want a new winger
With a recent report linking the Whites with winger Santiago Moreno, it is evident that Marcelo Bielsa is looking for a new wide man to come through the door at Elland Road.
Although Cunha can play in a number of different roles, he has predominantly played as a left-winger so far in the 2020/21 term.
The Latest: Leeds eyeing Cunha
According to Sky Sport Germany and transfer insider Max Bielefeld, the Yorkshire club are closely following Cunha and have been for months already, as he looks likely to leave Hertha Berlin in the summer.
However, As Monaco, Napoli and Atalanta are also interested in his signature, with Hertha willing to sell for €30m (£25.9m).
The Verdict: Leeds should sign Cunha
It is likely but not guaranteed the Peacocks will be able to sign Jack Harrison from Manchester City on a permanent deal once his current loan spell ends, but there could still be a position up for grabs, with Helder Costa expected to leave the club.
Cunha is more than capable, with no fewer than eight goals and a further eight assists in 28 games in total over all competitions so far this season (Transfermarkt).
Should Leeds sign Cunha?
Hertha head coach Bruno Labbadia has described him as having ‘something special’, and he could be key in unlocking the door of some stubborn defences that LUFC are likely to face in the Premier League next campaign.
Nonetheless, at just 21 years of age, he will only get better, and so Leeds should not think twice about snapping up the Brazilian.
