Leeds United admire Croatian winger Josip Brekalo


Leeds United have been linked with a move for Croatian winger Josip Brekalo this summer.

According to Calciomercato, the Premier League club are admirers of the 23-year-old who could be available for around €18 million.

Wolfsburg are prepared to send the player out on loan with an obligation to buy, and that could certainly help any potential transfer.

The Whites have been looking to strengthen in the wide areas, with Noa Lang amongst the players they have been linked with in recent weeks.

Brekalo could be a quality addition for Marcelo Bielsa’s attack, and the asking price seems fairly reasonable.

He is a naturally left-sided winger but can operate on the other flank, and his versatility would be handy for Leeds.

Brekalo was an important player for Wolfsburg last season, bagging seven goals and four assists across all competitions.

Working with a top-class manager like Marcelo Bielsa could help him improve further, and a move to Elland Road seems ideal.

However, the winger would have to work hard to earn a starting berth at Leeds after the impressive performances of Jack Harrison last season.

He is highly unlikely to be a guaranteed starter for the Whites, which may scupper their hopes of securing his services.
