Door reportedly now wide open for Leeds to sign £16m-rated Josip Brekalo

The door may well now be wide open for Leeds United to sign Wolfsburg ace Josip Brekalo, according to Calciomercato.it.

The 23-year-old reportedly wants to leave the Bundesliga outfit to try a new challenge.

And Wolfsburg could accept a fee of around £16 million for the winger.

Marcelo Bielsa seems determined to build a squad capable of pushing for the top six this season.

The Whites may well now have a great chance to bring the 27-capped Croatian international to Elland Road this summer.

Calciomercato.it claims that he is keen to leave Wolfsburg and the German club only want around £16m for him.

That would represent outstanding value for Leeds.

He racked up seven goals and three assists in 29 Bundesliga games for Wolfsburg last season.

He is a technically gifted winger and has impressive pace in his locker as well.

The Croatian has a directness to his playing style that makes him perfectly suited to the intense nature of Premier League football.

£16m for Brekalo would be an absolute steal for Leeds.

And it seems as though there is every chance that Bielsa will bring the winger to Yorkshire this summer.
