Report: Graham Potter tells Chelsea to buy £44m forward who Leeds United were also hoping to sign
Leeds United are no strangers to bigger teams trying to sign their transfer targets.
It was a summer of change for Chelsea with new owners coming in, and a host of new signings arrived at Stamford Bridge.
However, neither player has hit the ground running, and Chelsea are somewhat struggling in front of goal.
The Stade Rennais forward has been playing some brilliant football over the past 12 months.
The 25-year-old had plenty of suitors in the summer, but decided to stay at Rennes.
However, Chelsea now have money to spend, and have their sights set on the versatile forward.
Potter tells Chelsea to buy Terrier
Leeds have also had their problems in front of goal this season.
You wouldn’t believe it after their extraordinary comeback victory over Bournemouth at the weekend.
However, Patrick Bamford’s form has failed to recover after a spate of injuries.
Rodrigo Moreno has never been a consistent goal scorer in his career, and can’t be relied upon all season.
A move for Terrier makes a lot of sense for Leeds.
He’s able to play on the left wing or as a centre forward, and already has eight goals this season.
He managed to score 21 last year, a remarkable tally that has put him on a number of team’s radars.
He reportedly didn’t tick enough boxes for Leeds in the summer, but that has likely changed after a string of great performances this campaign.
However, with Potter telling Chelsea to sign Terrier, that may not be so easy anymore.
Jeunes Footeux believe a bid of at least £44m will be needed to sign the Frenchman.
That may just push the ‘complete’ forward out of their budget, especially if a bidding war breaks out.
