The defensive department of the Leeds squad needs quality additions this summer.
As per British media, Leeds United are eyeing move for Brest left-back Romain Perraud.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The France international only joined Brest from Nice in 2019 for 2 million euros and his contract runs to June 2025.
The left-back has featured in 31 matches this term, netting three goals and providing five assists in all competitions.
Perraud has represented France at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level, winning 22 caps and scoring two goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Leeds.
By the club’s own admission, Brest left-back Romain Perraud is Leeds United’s transfer target. Marcelo Bielsa needs to tighten up his defense and a left-back would be a welcome addition.
The Leeds United manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this summer.
Romain Perraud is a skilled left-back who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Leeds United have renewed their interest in Brest left-back Romain Perraud. Manager Marcelo Bielsa is hoping to secure adequate cover for Ezgjan Alioski for next season. And according to the Daily Mail, the 23-year-old defender is Leeds’ main target for that position. The club will, however, face competition from Lyon in France for the fullback. Perraud is a France under-23 international and a very attack minded player.”
