Pierre-Michel Lasogga is likely to cut ties from both Leeds United and Hamburg in the summer, according to German newspaper Bild.
It’s reported the striker, currently on loan at Elland Road from HSV, ‘will be gone in the summer’ from Hamburg, but that doesn’t mean he’s signing permanently at Leeds United.
Lasogga’s recent comments to Germany’s Sky about maybe being able to fulfill a ‘childhood dream’ and sign for a Premier League club are reiterated, and once again it’s stated there’s interest.
There’s been a regular string of articles from Germany over the past month or so which have claimed Lasogga’s Leeds United performances have attracted interest from Premier League clubs, and Bild again go with that theme.
All this may not be a surprise for Leeds United, given Carpi confirmed in February that an agreement has been reached for Jerry Mbakogu.
The Serie B club’s general manager Matteo Scali was quoted as saying: “There’s a gentleman agreement with Leeds for June.”
Given the two are similar players, it’s a like for like situation.
