A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Star over the weekend suggesting that the Whites are interested in bringing Lewis Cook back this summer.
The Elland Road faithful are still waiting for the club’s transfer plans to reach top gear. So far, Marcelo Bielsa’s side have brought in a handful of incredibly exciting young players and ensured that both Illan Meslier and Jack Harrison will stick around for next season at least.
The supporters will be hoping for some marquee additions in the very near future. And one of the players reportedly on the club’s radar is a very familiar face.
According to the Daily Star, Leeds want Cook following Bournemouth’s relegation. It is claimed that the midfielder’s former club are preparing a £15 million bid.
There was a time when Leeds fans could have only dreamed about the prospect of being linked with re-signing Cook.
He left in 2016 as the Whites continued to toil in the Championship. The 23-year-old has since made his England debut and 68 Premier League appearances.
However, reports claiming that Leeds want Cook have attracted a mixed response from the fans.
Some believe that he is simply not needed. He has struggled with injury during his time with the Cherries, and it has been suggested that Leeds do not need to sign a midfielder this summer.
But there are some who, despite questioning how likely it is that Cook will return, would love to see him brought back.
He is still young. And if he can stay fit, he could arguably prove to be a revelation working under Bielsa.
Here is how some of the supporters have reacted to the reports…
Imagine Lewis Cook coming back😍 #LUFC

Unlike the majority of our fans, I’d love to see this, could be a great signing. Eddie killed him as he killed so many others, but if he could stay fit Marcelo would make Lewis fly

It would be interesting to see what MB could do with somebody who’s got the natural talent of Cook, as with everybody else we’re linked to, if he turns up it’s because Marcelo thinks he can do something with him

Another player were linked with, personally think we don’t need him. KP is far superior. Cool is injury prone

Not a bad signing but far bigger priorities elsewhere in the side #next

I’d have him back in a heartbeat but right now we’ve other priorities so I’d doubt we’re interested. https://t.co/Lj7Tkb05nn
