Leeds United were credited with an interest in Swiss international Michael Frey earlier this summer.
The Yorkshire Evening Post reported that while domestic players are the main focus of Victor Orta’s recruitment policy again this summer, Frey could be an exception.
The former Lille and Zurich striker is currently with Fenerbahce, but struggled to make an impact at the Turkish side this season. That, coupled with his sketchy injury record, meant many Leeds fans were happy to see this rumour go quiet.
However, his reported price-tag might have to make Leeds United consider a roll of the dice.
According to TurksVoetbal, Fenerbahce are ready to sell the player for just €2 million (£1.8 million.
Frey may not be the number one target for Leeds but as time goes by that fee will have to tempt Leeds into something of a gamble.
The bullish 24-year-old was once touted as one of Europe’s best up and coming young attackers and he still has the potential to reach such heights.
At just £1.8 million, Frey could be a bargain addition for Leeds. It would leave the Whites with money to improve other areas of the pitch this summer, whilst also adding another attacking threat.
It is certainly a scenario Leeds will have to give some thought.
