Matheus Cunha operated on the left-wing, as a striker and an attacking midfielder in the recently concluded season, and managed eight goals and eight assists in all competitions.

Leeds United have their eyes set on the 22-year-old and there’s been various claims detailing their interest in the Hertha Berlin star.

Even though the German club extended his contract until 2025 last season, the Whites still have the versatile forward on their transfer agenda.

On May 20th, Kicker reported Leeds are ‘intensifying contacts’ with the Brazilian, who is currently recovering from an ankle injury.

According to Bild, Cunha’s aim is to regain full fitness so that he can represent his country at the Olympics. If this happens, then he’s likely to miss pre-season preparation for next season at Hertha or at another side, if he ends up changing clubs.

It’s claimed Marcelo Bielsa’s side are one of the suitors who have ‘already expressed their interest’ in the player.

Leeds have received encouragement in their pursuit of Cunha, after the South American ‘received approval’ from his club for the summer sale, provided Hertha receive a fee around €40m.

Apart from the Premier League side, Napoli, AS Monaco and Atalanta are also interested in Cunha.
