Leeds United star Crysencio Summerville remains a potential target for Bayer Leverkusen, particularly if Leeds United can’t secure promotion back to the Premier League.

That’s according to SportBILD, who say the Leeds forward remains on Leverkusen’s list of options for the summer.

The newspaper explains that the Bundesliga champions are keen to upgrade pretty much all of their squad ahead of next season, when they will be defending their title and also competing in the Champions League.

Manager Xabi Alonso wants reinforcements to bolster his squad and has seemingly been promised them too, with the club already drawing up a list of options.

Summerville is one of the players being looked at to help bolster their attacking options after a superb campaign for Leeds that’s seen him bag 21 goals and ten assists in 48 games in all competitions to date.

He’s currently valued at €18m, which is low and unlikely to be what Leeds would actually ask for, but the belief is that if the Whites beat Southampton in the Championship Play-Off final, he could end up being too expensive for the German club.

In other words, they’re hoping Leeds can’t get back into the Premier League to ensure Summerville’s price tag doesn’t rocket and those in charge at Elland Road are potentially forced into a sale of their prized asset.
