Arriving at Hertha BSC last summer in exchange for a fee of £16.2m, Matheus Cunha has done rather well in his first campaign there.

Seven goals and six assists in 27 league appearances speak for themselves, and despite him being currently out with an ankle injury, the Brazilian is attracting attention from around Europe.

Leeds United are among those keeping an eye on him, which makes sense since they lack some depth up front should something happen to Patrick Bamford, and while Cunha has mostly played down the left for Hertha, he was first and foremost a striker at RB Leipzig.

Rodrigo hasn’t exactly set the world alight since his arrival from Valencia, so it isn’t surprising to see Marcelo Bielsa and his staff looking elsewhere for goals and creativity.

Max Bielefeld, a reporter for Sky Germany, provided an update on the Hertha forward on Monday, explaining that Leeds have been ‘following the player closely for months already’, but they face staunch competition.

The journalist adds Monaco in Ligue 1 and both Napoli and Atalanta in Serie A are also interested, while the Bundesliga side ‘would sell for the right price’ of around €30m.

It’s expensive, but nothing comes cheap these days, regardless of whether or not there is a financial crisis.

It might also be worthwhile to point out that a recent SportBild article suggested Leeds’ interest was ‘becoming more concrete’ ahead of the summer.
