Leeds target subject of club record-equalling bid by Premier League rivals - report

Leeds United have been linked with Maxwel Cornet in recent weeks.

A month ago, the Whites reportedly made a bid for the Lyon left-back, which the French club rejected.

Now, it looks as though other Premier League sides are lining up to make their move for Cornet.

According to Sky Sports, Burnley have submitted a £15million offer for the full-back.

The Clarets would equal their record transfer fee paid for a player, as they also spent £15million on Ben Gibson in 2018.

The report also claims that they’d pay the fee for the Ivory Coast international across five instalments.

Meanwhile, 90Min claims West Ham and Newcastle are hoping to make a late move for Cornet.

Leeds target “very impressive” player?

Cornet is an exciting player who was reportedly on Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola’s radar in 2018.

“I was very impressed by the talent of Maxwel Cornet,” Guardiola said after the player scored a brace in a 2-2 draw in November 2018.

Cornet’s place in the team has come under threat since Lyon signed Euro 2020 winner Emerson Palmieri on loan from Chelsea last week.

And while Leeds have signed Junior Firpo, rumours persist linking the Elland Road outfit to the 24-year-old, according to TEAMtalk.
