Leeds United have been linked with Hertha Berlin attacker Matheus Cunha for a while now.
According to UOL, the Premier League club have intensified their efforts to sign the player who will cost around €25-30 million this summer.
Marcelo Bielsa has requested the signing of Cunha this summer, despite the 22-year-old being contracted to Hertha until 2025.
Leeds will have to pay the asking price if they want to secure the Brazilian’s services as the German club are under no pressure to sell
Leeds could definitely use more attacking depth in their squad, and Cunha would be a superb long term acquisition.
The highly-rated forward bagged eight goals and eight assists in all competitions last season.
He can operate across the front line, and his versatility would come in handy for Leeds.
Patrick Bamford had a highly successful campaign last season, but the English forward is not a clinical goalscorer.
Bielsa needs to bring in more options to lead the line, and Cunha seems like a perfect fit.
The increased competition for places will raise the performance levels of the players and improve Leeds’ hopes of securing European qualification.
