Wanting to buy a midfielder, with Nahitan Nández high up on his wishlist, Marcelo Bielsa appears to also be in the market for a winger.
There is cover for the role, but the rumours sending Noni Madueke to Leeds United only emphasise the desire to add extra depth down the flanks, which is where someone like Josip Brekalo could come in.
That’s according to Calciomercato.it, who explain the Elland Road side are one of the ‘admirers’ of the Croatian, who featured a handful of times at the Euros over the past month.
The article they have mostly focuses on the interest from Italy and Spain in the player, but they do have some valuable information that would be of use to Leeds.
Wolfsburg, where the winger is currently contracted, would be ‘open to a loan with an obligation to buy in June 2022’ for their player, and a fee of €18m ‘would be enough’.
That’s certainly affordable for a Premier League club, especially when it comes to a 23-year-old who ended the season with seven goals and three assists in the Bundesliga.
