Many Leeds United fans have been discussing a news update regarding Boubakary Soumare that recently emerged on social media.

Football Insider have recently reported about Soumare, saying that the Whites are ready to join the race for the Lille midfielder and Marcelo Bielsa’s men are currently looking to sign a top central midfielder, who can provide cover for Kalvin Phillips, Mateusz Klich and the others.

Leeds now see the midfielder as a potential target, despite interest from Premier League rivals Leicester. Soumare’s current deal at Lille runs out in the summer of 2022 and because of the financial troubles in French football, he could be available for a cheap fee.

Do Leeds have a chance of signing Soumare?

Yes

No

This news about the club’s links with the Frenchman was relayed on Twitter by journalist James Marshment. Many Whites fans made their views clear about Soumare.

What do Leeds fans make of the links with Soumare?

“For that amount of money, he’d need to be getting regular football. Maybe utilise him in the Klich role when Phillips is fit to play?

Last year, Soumare was linked with a move to Manchester United and even Chelsea and it was stated that he was going to decide between signing for one of those two clubs. In the January of 2020, the Frenchman had rejected a chance to move to Newcastle, who had a bid accepted for him.
