Report: Key Leeds star Lewis Cook considering future; five Premier League clubs interested

Leeds United

Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are all said to be chasing Leeds United's Lewis Cook.

The Daily Star believes that the Premier League's top five are all trying to sign Lewis Cook from Leeds United this summer.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are all allegedly chasing the England youth international, who has had a great breakthrough campaign at Elland Road.

Cook has been a mainstay in the Leeds first-team this season and his performances in the heart of their midfield have been a major reason behind their success.

The 18-year-old has shown an ability which belies his years and he appears to be one of the most promising English youngsters in the country.

It is, therefore, no surprise to see Cook attracting attention from some of the country's biggest clubs and he is apparently considering his future.

Although the midfielder would love to stay at Elland Road, the instability off the field has seemingly led to him believing that his dream of guiding the club to the Premier League is impossible. 

Leeds have recently suspended assistant manager Steve Thompson and with current manager Neil Redfearn's future still up in the air, Cook may be starting to assess his options.

At the moment the midfielder is on a deal reportedly worth £4,000 a week, but he could land a huge pay-rise by moving to the Premier League and the option must be becoming more tempting as the unrest at Leeds increases.
