Update emerges on Chelsea’s interest in Leeds United star, summer move possible

Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville is an option for Chelsea this summer but Nico Williiams is their top target out wide, TEAMtalk has said.

Leeds United faced Chelsea in the FA Cup last month and shortly before the tie, it was claimed that the Premier League side were keen on Whites star Crysencio Summerville.

The 22-year-old has been a standout in the Championship this season. He’s managed 16 goals and nine assists in 36 games for Daniel Farke’s side, locking down the starting spot on the left-hand side ahead of some talented players.

Now, amid those previous links with the Stamford Bridge club, new claims have emerged.

TEAMtalk reiterates that Summerville is a player of interest to Chelsea amid eye-catching displays on scouting trips. However, Athletic Bilbao star Nico Williams is their priority target for the summer transfer window.

Summerville is a potential alternative and despite a potential promotion and Farke’s desire to keep the winger, it could be that he moves on if a top club comes calling in the summer.

Who is this?

Interest on the cards?

While Summerville isn’t at the top of Chelsea’s shopping list, it would be a surprise if they’re the only ones to show interest in the Leeds United star this summer. If anything, their stance could open the door for other admirers to swoop in.

After such a strong season, the Dutchman is a talent on an upward trajectory. Promotion to the Premier League would keep him on that path at Elland Road, but it could be that others look to take him to an even higher level, perhaps even towards European football.

Interest seems almost inevitable, but only time will tell just how it develops.

Until then, Summerville will be fully focused on the task at hand with the Whites. Leeds United sit 3rd in the Championship table as it stands, two points off the top two and five away from league leaders Leicester City.
