Leeds United loanee Pierre Michel-Lassoga could leave his parent club Hamburg for just £2.2 million in the summer, according to German media outlet Bild.

Hamburg are in real danger of being relegated to the German second division and could be desperate to offload some of their players to reduce their wage bill and prepare for next season.

Pierre-Michel Lassoga is one who they would allow to leave for a small fee. He is currently on loan at Championship side Leeds United and he could be snapped up for just £2.2 million.

The 26 year-old has scored 10 goals for the Whites so far this season and he is certainly an option to sign for Paul Heckingbottom in the summer. He offers them a different option going forward.

There could potentially be other Championship sides or Bundesliga teams on red alert with the news that he could be allowed to leave Hamburg so Leeds will have to act fast if they want to bring him to Elland Road on a permanent basis.

The 26 year-old started his career at Bayer Leverkusen but left them in 2010 to join Hertha Berlin. He scored 24 goals in three seasons for them before he signed for Hamburg, initially on loan in 2014 before it was later made permanent. He has scored 30 goals for them since.

He only played 22 times for them last season after falling down their pecking order. He was loaned to Leeds and has been a decent signing for them. Although he is not a prolific goal scorer, he can produce moments of quality in games and that is why Leeds fans wouldn’t mind snapping him up on a permanent deal.
