Fulham to rival Chelsea and Liverpool in race to sign Leeds United winger

Fulham are the latest club to enter the race for Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville, as per TEAMtalk.

Leeds United are preparing for another season in the Championship. They fell short against Southampton in the play-off final last month and now Daniel Farke is once again tasked with getting the Whites back in the top flight this season.

Summerville, 22, was a key player at Elland Road this season. The versatile winger made 49 appearances across all competitions, scoring 21 goals and assisting a further ten.

He featured briefly in the Premier League as Leeds United were relegated and it seems a move back to the top flight may come sooner for the player than his club.

Newcastle United were linked earlier in the week with a move for the dynamic winger.

Elsewhere, Liverpool and Chelsea were keeping tabs on the young Dutch international. And now Fulham have reportedly joined the race to sign him.

Who is this?

A hard fight to win

It seems as if Leeds United may need to lose a few of their star players this summer and at the moment it seems the 22-year-old attacker is one that is likely to move on.

Battling against big clubs in Liverpool and Chelsea was always going to make life hard for Leeds United, and now another Premier League club in the mix only adds to the difficulty.

Summerville has a bright future ahead of him and he is certainly capable of playing top tier football and as things stand it seems only a case of who he joins and not if or when.

Building for the future

Leeds United have today been linked with a move for VfB Stuttgart winger, Silas and the DR Congo international could come in as a replacement for Summerville if this one materialises over the next few weeks.

Farke is a safe pair of hands to have leading the dressing room for Leeds United. His history with Norwich City proves he is capable of achieving promotion to the Premier League, and despite falling short last month he is still a solid option.

The summer is set to be a busy one for Leeds United. For as much as they may need to lose players, they will need to sign replacements and it will be interesting to see how they approach their business this summer, especially following the recent investment from Red Bull.
