Leeds United star Crysencio Summerville has had a tremendous season so far, garnering interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including the current Premier League leaders.
The Dutch winger has arguably been Daniel Farke’s most important player so far in the 2023/24 campaign and is currently the joint-fourth top goalscorer in the Championship alongside Sunderland winger Jack Clarke with 12 goals in total.
Furthermore, Summerville is Leeds’ most prolific attacker and has registered 18 goal contributions in all competitions for the Peacocks, including six assists as Farke’s men boast the fourth-best attacking record in England’s second tier.
However, as a result of his stellar performances, the winger has seen his stock rise and is being linked with several clubs in the Premier League, including Everton and Burnley, with transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claiming during the summer that the latter had a £17 million bid rejected from Leeds for Summerville.
🇳🇱 Crysencio Summerville is on super stats since October: 10 goals and 5 assists.
Understand several clubs including Aston Villa keep tracking him…
⛔️ Leeds have no intention to sell him in January as he’s key player.

Now, Anfield Watch have reported that Premier League table-toppers Liverpool have registered interest in the 22-year-old and have scouted him extensively ahead of the summer transfer window.
Furthermore, the outlet are claiming that Summerville no longer has a release clause inserted into his contract at Elland Road, while it has also been revealed over the past few weeks that Leeds will hold out for between £25-30 million.
Meanwhile, there have also been rumours that Leeds United are willing to accept offers for Wilfried Gnonto this winter, meaning the club could lose two star wingers over the next six months.
While Leeds United fans certainly won’t want to lose Summerville, it’s better for the club to accept an offer for him at the end of the season rather than midway through the campaign as it could hamper their hopes of a return to the Premier League.
Unless an offer comes in that the Yorkshire outfit can’t refuse, the Leeds board should hold onto Summerville for as long as possible whilst also scouting potential replacements for the Dutchman ahead of the summer window.
