According to The Daily Record, Leeds United are interested in signing Romaine Sawyers.
The Brentford attacking midfielder has been linked to a number of different sides this summer and the Whites are now seemingly on the radar.
But Leeds fans should hope it's a product of the rumour mill and nothing more because, well, Marcelo Bielsa doesn't need him.
Sawyers, who turns 28 in November, has managed only six goals in his last 127 Championship games, along with 17 assists.
For an attacking midfielder, those stats aren't much to write home about and his arrival would stifle the progress of Tyler Roberts.
Bielsa pulled a masterstroke midway through last season by converting Roberts - a £4 million signing 18 months ago [The Daily Mail] - into a number 10 and United benefited in a big way.
The Wales international, signed as a striker, enjoyed a relatively seamless transition to a slightly deeper role and now the Argentine coach needs to stick with him.
Roberts has shown enormous potential and the 20-year-old - who is injured at the moment - could have a great season on the horizon.
Sawyers is good, but he isn't better than what Leeds already have and given that the West Yorkshire side aren't exactly flush, they need to invest in the areas most in need of reinforcements.
