Report: Leeds table new £10m bid for player Everton wanted to sign this summer
The past few years have seen Piroe, 24, shine for Swansea. He has played 92 games in two seasons for the Welsh club, scoring 44 goals total. This is the last season of his contract. He has accomplished two of his goals so far.
This morning, Alan Nixon announced on his Patreon channel that Leeds had made a bid to sign the Dutch star, who is valued at £15 million.According to The Mail, a bid is for £10 million, and Phil Hay claims that Leeds is interested in making a move.
The latest report says that alongside the £10m fee, Leeds are also in talks with the agents of Piroe this week – with Daniel Farke very keen to add attackers to his side. Everton are also said to have looked.
Leeds table £10m bid to sign Swansea striker Piroe, talks ongoing
According to some estimates, Swansea wants between £15 million and £20 million for Piroe. Swansea might be willing to lower the fee as the window closes in order to prevent selling on a free. How much though?
The likelihood of the Swans lowering their asking price for Piroe by half is slim if they valued him at £20 million at the beginning of the transfer window. A deal between £12 million and £15 million might be possible. a good deal even then.
Patrick Bamford cannot be relied upon by Leeds. Joseph Mateo gets hurt. Joe Gelhardt performs best as a 10, whereas Georginio Rutter is regarded as a wide man. Therefore, Piroe or a no. 9 similar Piroe is required. He would be a great signing.
