Two months ago, we carried a report from L’Equipe, who explained Leeds United are ‘in the spotlight’ to sign Stade Brestois’ Romain Faivre.

On April 9th, France Football stated Leeds are in the picture for the 22-year-old and will have to step up their efforts because he has received a ‘pharaonic’ offer from a club in Saudi Arabia.

The midfielder has six goals and five assists in 34 league matches and his performances have caught attention of several clubs across Europe.

Among them is Paris Saint-Germain, and according to Le Parisien, the Ligue 1 side have established contacts with the player’s entourage for several months.

Brest host PSG in the last game of this season and the two sides are expected to continue talks for the Frenchman’s transfer after that.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side, however, will face ‘increased competition’ from elsewhere.

As per the report, Milan, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund and Marcelo Bielsa’s side have ‘expressed concrete interest’ to acquire Faivre’s services.

To secure his signature, the interested parties must pay between €15m and €20m to the French club.

PSG have an advantage because the Brest star would be in favour of playing for the Paris club as he has a ‘special affection’ towards them.

This would not come as a good news for the likes of Leeds and other interested parties.
