Leeds United have turned their attention towards Bayern Munich’s Michaël Cuisance.
The 21-year-old joined the treble winners from Borussia Mönchengladbach last summer, and was restricted to just over 300 minutes of action in the league last season.
According to Foot Mercato, Marseille are interested in the midfielder and are looking to take him on a loan deal with an option to buy.
The Whites have now entered the chase as their manager, Marcelo Beilsa, ‘fell in love’ with the Frenchman, and has asked his club’s management to look into his case.
Therefore, Leeds’ management are ‘strongly considering’ sending ‘transfer proposal’ to the Bavarian club.
Hansi Flick lost Thiago Alcântara to Liverpool last week, and is looking for a replacement for the Spaniard.
Cuisance prefers to continue at the Allianz Arena, but the possibility of Bayern signing a new midfielder, which he would look at with ‘very bad eyes’, would restrict his playing time.
With less than two weeks left for the summer window to close, Foot Mercato states the player has three options.
Either continue at Bayern, join Marseille on loan or sign for Leeds to ‘try the English experience’. The website adds each of these options ‘have their advantages and disadvantages…’
