Bielsa likes Lens
More on the news regarding Jeremain Lens reportedly being a target for Leeds United. Fotospor is now reporting that Bielsa is a fan of the Dutchman and does indeed want him at Elland Road.
The former Sunderland flop was reportedly watched by Leeds officials in a Europa League clash with Sarpsborg last week, in which he scored twice.
Leeds United scouts were recently present in a game between Rio Ave and Sporting Lisbon. According to Record, as relayed by Sport Witness, Leeds watched the two sides clash on Monday night.
Whilst no specific target was mentioned, Leeds are clearly spreading their net throughout Europe in order to sign the best players for their future.
