According to a claim in the German media, Leeds United were interested in Werder Bremen forward Aron Johannsson in the last window, before they signed Pierre-Michel Lasogga from Hamburg.
Kreiszeitung have reported Johannsson’s future with Werder Bremen looks uncertain due to his form this season. The German side are looking to recover the €4.5m they paid for the 26 year old in 2015 to Dutch side AZ.
However, Kreiszeitung say things could have been different for Johannsson following Leeds United interest in the summer, but instead they decided to go for Lasogga.
The Championship side did have dealings with Werder Bremen in the last window when they signed Felix Wiedwald from the Bundesliga club.
Lasogga joined Leeds United on loan in August and hit the ground running, scoring three goals in his first five games. The 25 year old was named Leeds United Player of the Month for September, and has received praise in the German media for his performances.
Should they wish, it very much sounds like Leeds United will have a January chance to sign Johannsson. Werder Bremen would certainly make it possible.
