Leeds United are seemingly moving in on a deal to sign Dutch attacker Gyrano Kerk. As reported by De Telegraaf, the Whites are closing in on an agreement for the Utrecht player who is valued at around £9.1 million.
Leeds are seemingly jumping ahead of both Cagliari and Hellas Verona to secure the deal, as reported by TuttoMercatoWeb.
It would certainly be an eye-catching deal for a player who impressed in the Eredivisie last season. Kerk scored 11 goals and provided 12 assists during 2019-20.
It was one of his best seasons at the club since his first full campaign in the Utrecht first-team back in 2017-18, when he thrived in a central attacking role.
He also had an interesting team-mate during that season, one Mateusz Klich.
The Polish midfielder, who had only joined Leeds the previous summer, was shipped out to the Dutch side on loan in January 2018 having fallen out of the first-team plans at Elland Road.
He went on to have an excellent campaign at the Stadion Galgenwaard, helping Marcelo Bielsa decide to keep him at Leeds going forward.
Klich has since become one of Leeds’ most consistent and regular performers under the Argentine’s management and will surely give Leeds an extra advantage in any pursuit for the Dutch attacker.
