Leeds United have been linked with a host of names this summer, including some that have become eye-catching arrivals.
The latest player being linked with a potential switch to Elland Road is that of Bayern Munich youngster Michael Cuisance.
That is according to a report from Foot Mercato, who suggest that Marcelo Bielsa is a big fan of the talented Frenchman and has reportedly ‘fallen in love with’ him from scouting reports.
Of course, the Argentine would. Cuisance is one of Bayern’s top young talents and would be an excellent piece of business from Leeds.
However, a report from Bild has suggested Leeds fans do not get too excited about a potential swoop for the 21-year-old.
They claim that Leeds are indeed interested in making a concrete permanent offer to sign the player, but it is likely to fall on deaf ears.
The report states that Bayern still have high hopes for Cuisance and any exit is extremely unlikely this summer, considering their current transfer business.
Bayern are ready to let Javi Martinez leave this summer whilst Thiago Alcantara has already left a gap in the midfield following his reported (Guardian) £27 million move to Liverpool. The Bavarians believe that Cuisance can help fill the void left by the Spaniard’s departure, meaning he is not currently for sale.
Leeds would be wise to keep track of Cuisance, considering how difficult it can be to break into the Bayern team. In the future, he may very well become available. But at present, Hansi Flick clearly sees a place for him in his squad at the Allianz Arena.
