Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Rajiv van La Parra is being targeted by Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Leeds United have made a bid for Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Rajiv van La Parra, according to The Sun.

Earlier today, HITC Sport reported that Championship duo Leeds and Brighton & Hove Albion are interested in the 24-year-old.

The Sun has now claimed that the Whites have made a bid for the Dutchman, who has been on the books of Wolves since the summer of 2014.

According to the British tabloid, Leeds will pay Championship rivals Wolves a transfer fee of £500,000 for the services of Van La Parra.

Van La Parra is reportedly set to sign a three-year contract with the West Yorkshire outfit and will join with his new teammates over the weekend.

Good player

Van La Parra enjoyed a successful season with Wolves in 2014-15, as he helped the club go close to finishing in the top six of the Championship.

The former Netherlands Under-21 international scored one goal and created 44 chances in 40 Championship appearances last season.

The former Heerenveen man had a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 35%, and won 14 headers, 45 dribbles and 40 tackles.

So far this campaign, Van La Parra has created two chances in as many Championship matches for Wolves.
