Leeds United talked about given that the 18-year-old young star is out

Leeds United transfer news: Borussia Dortmund ‘trying to lure’ star to Germany

 Borussia Dortmund have reportedly set their sights on trying to sign one of Leeds United‘s star men during the summer transfer window.

Having missed out on an immediate return to the Premier League, Leeds will allegedly need to cash in on at least one of their most prized assets.

However, the Yorkshire giants are not short in that department with Archie Gray, Crysencio Summerville and Georginio Rutter all of high value.

From Dortmund’s perspective, they have generally taken the approach of acquiring the services of youngsters or players with potential to be sold for a profit at a later date.

That applies for the aforementioned trio, with it being claimed that the Champions League runners-up are attempting to win the race for one of their signatures.

Sporting director Sven Mislintat is ‘seeking to entice’ Grey to the Westfalenstadion, according to BILD.

According to the article, Dortmund believes that now is the ideal moment to attempt to sign the 18-year-old, who is well-liked around Europe.

The teenager made a total of 47 starts and five substitute appearances in all competitions for 2023–24, despite only turning 18 in March.

According to reports, Grey is eager to join Dortmund because he may believe that at this point in his career, he would play more first-team minutes there than at a large English club.

Does Leeds have a chance of selling?
Given that Grey has a contract with Elland Road through 2028, Leeds can afford to be patient when it comes to making decisions regarding his future.

Daniel Farke’s team will be among the favourites to win the Championship the following season, and Grey adds value and versatility to Leeds’ roster.

Ultimately, though, a lot could go on Leeds’ decision to sell Summerville, who is expected to draw a lot of interest given that his contract is about to expire in two years.

Although Rutter is also a target for a transfer, Leeds will only approve bids beyond £30 million because the 22-year-old has only improved his standing since moving from Hoffenheim in in January 2023
