Alberth Elis has ended up in the sights of Leeds United and West Ham United, according to reports.

The Honduras international first arrived in Europe when Portuguese side Boavista took him from Houston Dynamo in 2020.

Last season, he was allowed to join Bordeaux on a loan deal. The forward managed nine goals and an assist from 20 league matches, and his stay at there was made permanent.

That’s according to Honduras’ Diario Diez, who state multiple offers have reached the French club for the 26-year-old.

There’s no specific mention of which clubs have sent offers to Bordeaux, who were relegated to the third division due to their economic problems. Despite all this, they ‘seem in no hurry’ to sell the player and are waiting for better proposals.

When discussing Elis’ suitors, Leeds and West Ham are mentioned. It’s claimed these two clubs, along with Fenerbahçe, are ‘betting on integrating’ him into their squad.

Elis has returned to Bordeaux for pre-season training. Last week, during an interview with Diario Diez, he was quizzed about his future.

Responding to that, he said: “I have a contract with them and I must present myself, later it will be known what will happen in the following months.”

It remains to be seen whether Leeds United, West Ham or another club are ready to take advantage of the French club’s current situation to sign Elis this summer.
