According to Foot Mercato, Bayern Munich player Michael Cuisance is a target for Leeds United before the transfer window closes next month.
The report claims that Marcelo Bielsa is a big fan of the midfielder and with that in mind, Leeds are considering sending Bayern an offer for the player.
Cuisance, 21, played 17 minutes of Bayern Munich’s opening day 8-0 Bundesliga victory over Schalke and has played 11 games fo the Bavarians in total.
The highly-rated Frenchman is a ball-playing central midfielder and has seven caps for the France under-20 ranks.
Bayern signed Cuisance from Borussia Monchengladbach and see him a shining light for the future.
It seems as though the player is keen to receive guarantees over more frequent playing time – something which he has yet to receive from Bayern.
Bielsa’s former club Marseille are interested in the player, although their lack of transfer funds means that only a loan would be viable.
Bayern are unwilling to allow Cuisance out on a temporary basis and it’ll be keen to see whether Leeds’ transfer plan will test their resolve.
Leeds have started life in the Premier League in an entertaining fashion; playing a big part in two 4-3 scorelines.
They lost to Liverpool on the opening day and beat Fulham at Elland Road last Saturday to get their first three points.
TBR View – Cuisance fits the DNA of Leeds United
The transfer strategy at Leeds is the envy of many clubs and typically they opt for quality over quantity.
With Cuisnace coming on in Bayern’s first match of the campaign it highlights that he’s well though of by the Champions League holders.
Leeds typically like to add younger talent to their squad and the Whites would be signing a player with bags of potential in Cuisance.
At 21, the midfielder would fit in nicely with the current transfer strategy at Leeds.
After Robin Koch and Rodrigo Moreno; the midfielder would represent another shrewd investment.
