Report: Leicester join Antonio Conte & Erik ten Hag in race to sign £22,000-a-week Leeds man
What’s the story?
Well, the £22,000-a-week man has been a sensation since he arrived in the Premier League with Leeds.
Now, the Frenchman’s efforts have attracted the interest of Leicester, who are looking for a new goalkeeper after Kasper Schmeichel left for OGC Nice.
Tottenham are also monitoring the 22-year-old’s progress at Elland Road.
Furthermore, Manchester United are keen as they attempt to find an upgrade on David de Gea.
However – according to Fabrizio Romano – Leeds have no intention of doing business with the Red Devils, given the history between the two sides.
Erik ten Hag is eyeing a move for Borussia Monchengladbach shot-stopper Yann Sommer as an alternative.
Leicester, Tottenham & Manchester United interest proves Leeds have a gem
When Leeds spent £5m to sign Meslier on a permanent deal in July 2020, many considered it to be a large sum for a goalkeeper with little experience under his belt.
However, the Whites have been rewarded for their show of faith in the France Under-21 international, who could now fetch them a tidy profit if they do choose to sell.
It has been said that Leeds value their No.1 at a sum of £25m – in our view, their valuation should be at least double that, especially as Chelsea paid £72m to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is nowhere near as good as Meslier.
Whatever happens, interest from Premier League rivals proves that Leeds have a gem on their hands, one who is only going to improve.
