Report: Leeds United want £10m for Lewis Cook, with Bournemouth and Stoke City both interested

Bournemouth and Stoke City are said to be interested in Leeds United's Lewis Cook.

Stoke City and Bournemouth want Leeds United youngster Lewis Cook, according to the Daily Star.

Cook has been an integral part of Leeds’ team for the past two seasons, despite his tender years, and Premier League clubs are starting to take notice of the midfielder’s talents.

Manchester United and Liverpool have both been linked with Cook by the Star previously, and Stoke and Bournemouth are now said to be prepared to rival them.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has been keeping a close eye on Cook’s progress, while Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has also been tracking the England youth international.

Leeds are understood to be keen to keep hold of Cook though, and they have slapped a £10million price-tag on the 18-year-old.

Cook was only handed a new contract with Leeds at the start of the year, but it has not put off the top-flight clubs, who believe they may be able to land him in January. 

Cook has already made 53 senior appearances for Leeds, and he is regarded as one of the most exciting talents outside the Premier League.
