“Good Chance” – £30 Million Leeds United Star Wanted By Cup Finalists

Leeds United are having a fine campaign so far, particularly star winger Crysencio Summerville who has been an integral part of Daniel Farke’s system this season.

The Dutch winger has been in superb form for the Whites, bagging 16 goals and recording nine assists in all competitions, including 23 goal contributions in the Championship. Only Southampton’s Adam Armstrong and Plymouth Argyle’s Morgan Whittaker have registered more in England’s second tier this term.

Digging further into these impressive statistics, the 23-year-old has either scored or set up exactly 34.9% of Leeds’ goals this season in the league, causing the player to garner interest from some of England’s biggest clubs.

In an attempt to stave off Premier League intrigue in January amid the club’s tense battle for promotion back to the promised land, Leeds United reportedly slapped a £30 million price tag on Summerville’s head.

Nevertheless, this hasn’t stopped clubs from keeping tabs on the player. According to a new report from TEAMtalk, EFL Cup finalists and current top-flight strugglers Chelsea are keen to land the dazzling Dutchman this summer.

The outlet are claiming that Farke is desperate to keep hold of Summerville beyond next season but the club understand that there is a “good chance” the player could depart from Elland Road at the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Football Insider revealed earlier this week that the Yorkshire outfit will look to permanently cut ties with Brenden Aaronson, who has struggled during his loan spell with Bundesliga outfit Union Berlin.

Summerville struggled last season when Leeds United were in the Premier League but has become a different animal in the division below, staking his claim ahead of May for the competition’s Player of the Season accolade.

However, his impressive displays were always likely to garner interest from wealthy clubs like Chelsea but if the Whites are promoted this season, then they can hold out for a huge fee, otherwise, the board may be forced to sell their star man if they fail to do so.
