Report: £3.6m striker unconvinced by Leeds move, two European sides keen

Belgian outlet DH have claimed that Fenerbahce striker Michael Frey is unconvinced over a move to Leeds United this summer, with Belgian duo Anderlecht and Genk keen.

Frey, 24, only joined Fenerbahce last summer and struggled in front of goal. Indeed, he only scored five goals in 22 games as Fener went from league challengers to finishing in a disappointing sixth place.

Now, Fener are said to be willing to offload the uncapped Swiss striker, with a fee of £3.6million required to land his signature. Leeds are said to be one of three clubs interested, but Frey seems unconvinced.

The Whites failure to gain promotion to the Premier League has left Frey seemingly against a move to Yorkshire with the club still in the Championship. It gives Anderlecht and Belgian league champions Genk with the advantage.


TBR’s view

Frey is certainly a bargain at £3.6million, and has pedigree after scoring 16 goals in 39 outings for FC Zurich the season prior to his move to Fenerbahce.

Leeds could do with a striker that guarantees goals, after Kemar Roofe managed just 15 and Patrick Bamford struggled to mirror the form that his hefty price tag would suggest.

Director of football Victor Orta has his work cut out, though, if Leeds look to sign Frey.
