Leeds United is currently in the midst of a transfer battle to secure the talented services of Facundo Medina, the center-back player from Lens. The Premier League team faces competition from Aston Villa, Brighton, and West Ham, who are all interested in the Argentina international footballer. It has been reported that Lens value Medina at over £25 million, with a bid of up to £31 million expected to be enough to sign the 23-year-old.
Medina’s versatility is another attractive quality, as he can also play as a left-back. While £31 million may seem steep, negotiations can often begin with high valuations, and Leeds may be able to negotiate a lower price for the talented defender if they can get to the table with him. Meanwhile, fans of Leeds United are experiencing a great deal of regret, according to Phil Hay, due to an announcement made by the club a few days ago.
In addition to his impressive ball-playing skills, Facundo Medina has also earned the label of an “Aggressive” defender by Scouted Football due to his assertive approach toward his defensive duties. He has a commendable ability to mark opponents closely and is also adept at closing down players, which an important trait is given Leeds United’s playing style. Additionally, Medina’s work ethic is exemplary and his versatility to play as a left-back makes him a valuable option for Leeds United to consider in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Although Lens has valued the Argentine center-back at the north of £25 million, a bid up to £31 million could be enough to sign the 23-year-old. While this valuation may seem steep, negotiations could bring the fee down, especially if Leeds United’s Director of Football, Victor Orta, enters the fray. In other news regarding Leeds United, Phil Hay has revealed that the club recently made an official announcement that left the Elland Road faithful with a significant sense of regret.
