Chelsea set sights on Leeds United forward ahead of potential transfer audition

Leeds United attacker Crysencio Summerville is a potential transfer target for Chelsea and Blues scouts will watch him tonight if selected, as per TEAMtalk.

Leeds United travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the FA Cup tonight. The winner will progress to the quarter-finals of the prestigious competition and will know who their potential opponents are ahead of the game, with the draw held at 19:00.

The Whites are prioritising their push for promotion from the Championship but continued impressive form has seen them embark on a cup run too. Maintaining their impressive streak with a victory tonight would be a real statement.

Now though, ahead of the tie, it is claimed Chelsea could have close eyes on one of Leeds United’s standout players.

TEAMtalk reports that the Blues have shortlisted star winger Crysencio Summerville as a potential target for the summer. They view him as a talent who could have a bright future at Stamford Bridge and if he overcomes a knock to feature, scouts will keep a close eye on him.

Leeds United are reportedly poised to face strong interest and even if they return to the Premier League, they could face a fight to keep the 22-year-old.

Who is this?

 

Inevitable interest?

With 16 goals and nine assists to his name in 33 games across all competitions, it’s no surprise that Summerville has drawn admiring glances from clubs further up the leagues. Chelsea are often in the market for talented young players, though perhaps such a reliance on that profile of player has been behind their downfall.

For Leeds United, they’ll be more than aware of the likely fight to keep the Rotterdam-born winger. For now though, their full focus will be on keeping Summerville at full tilt given his importance to the promotion fight.

For that reason, Chelsea might miss the chance to get a close look at him tonight. His slight ankle issue may well see him rested, avoiding the risk of exposing him to a worse problem while giving another Leeds United player the chance to catch the eye.
