After a couple of weeks of silence, we’re back seeing updates regarding Leeds United’s chase for Hertha Berlin striker Matheus Cunha.

The news comes from the Brazilian media, where outlet UOL writes that the Whites have ‘intensified talks’ to sign the 22-year-old.

The website claims the Elland Road side ‘promise to make an extra effort’ to buy the player this summer, as they ‘don’t give up’ on the signing despite the big demands made by the Bundesliga side.

UOL claims that Hertha Berlin currently ask for between €25m and €30m for the transfer.

The report claims the signing is a personal request from manager Marcelo Bielsa, who had already asked for Rafinha, another Brazilian, to be bought last summer.

Leeds’ chase for Cunha has been reported for a few months now, with the Whites seeming to be struggling to match Hertha’s price for the striker.

The Berlin side had spent €18m to sign him from RB Leipzig last year.

He scored eight goals and contributed eight assists in his first season for the club.
