Could Leeds United be one of the clubs interested in Edwin Gyasi?

The winger is said to have attracted interest from five Championship clubs and that is an area Leeds United will surely look to strengthen in the long term.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, five Championship clubs are chasing the signature of Roda JC winger Edwin Gyasi, so could one of them be Leeds United?

That is mere speculation of course, but Leeds manager Steve Evans has made no secret of his desire to add more width to his side and while Mustapha Carayol recently moved on loan from Middlesbrough that is only a temporary solution.

The Mail claims that German side Stuttgart and Italian club Napoli are also interested in Gyasi but that the player favours a move to England.

The five interested second tier clubs have not been named, but Leeds should certainly be considered a possibility given their need to add more strength in depth and Evans’ failure to be bowled over by Jordan Botaka thus far.

Gyasi has a contract with Roda until the summer of 2017 but it is being suggested that talks are ongoing regarding a potential move away from Holland, where he has played for his entire career to date.

The 24-year-old is predominantly a right winger and he can play on the opposite flank if required, although this season he has featured far more regularly as a striker.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for him, but do not be surprised if Leeds are looking high and low for the players who can ultimately guide them back to the top flight.
