Leeds interested in Jeremain Lens

As January approaches, transfer rumours start to gather pace and Leeds United do not appear to be exempt from them.

Marcelo Bielsa could look to use the winter transfer window as a chance to add to his squad as the Whites continue their charge to get promotion back to the Premier League.

And, according to a report in Turkey, it appears one man is on their radar, with the Championship outfit potentially making a bid for him in January.

Fotomac are claiming that Leeds watched Jeremain Lens in Besiktas’ win against Sarpsborg in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The winger, who has Premier League experience having played for Sunderland in the 2014-15 season, shone on the night and has been impressive for the Turkish giants.

It is understood Leeds could now make a bid for the 31-year-old, who is valued at £3.6million by Transfermarkt.

The Verdict:

Lens has been very impressive with Besiktas this season and has put in a number of great performances for the Istanbul-based side.

The Holland international showed glimpses of what he could do in English football with Sunderland and Bielsa would do his squad no harm in adding the attacker to the side.

However, the Turkish side may not be willing to entertain a January move for one of their key performers, and with the player having only signed a permanent deal this summer following an initial season-long loan, it remains to be seen if they will allow him to go so soon.
