Stuttgart keen to sell talented winger amid Leeds United interest

Leeds United hold interest in VfB Stuttgart winger, Silas, and the German club are willing to sell him this summer, as per Suedwest24.

Silas, 25, made 30 appearances in Germany for Stuttgart across all competitions last season. The DR Congo winger scored seven and assisted six across the 2023/24 campaign.

The versatile attacker can play centrally or down either flank and has provided a consistent goal output when playing every attacking position across his career so far.

He started his career at Paris FC in France before moving to Germany in 2019 and now it seems he may be on the move again this summer.

Leeds United were linked with him last week and it has now been reported that Stuttgart are keen to sell Silas this summer, but only for a fee of £12.75million.

Who is this?

Facing competition

The report last week linking the Whites to Silas did state there were five clubs eyeing up a move for the dynamic attacker this summer.

Daniel Farke’s side are expected to lose a lot of their top talents this transfer window after failing to make an immediate return to the Premier League and Silas would be a worthy replacement should they lose one of their star forwards.

It was said that top tier clubs in France, Spain and England were all keeping tabs on the situation in Germany and that sort of competition could prove difficult for Leeds United to compete with in the Championship.

Building on the disappointment

Leeds United were widely tipped to go straight back up this season, and many thought when they dropped into the top six that they would be the team to emerge victorious through the play-offs.

However, on the day it wasn’t to be and now they must go about preparing for another promotion push but this time in tougher circumstances.

Farke’s side were exciting to watch on several occasions last season. Leeds United gave freedom to their tricky wingers to make moments happen and it is for that reason that Silas may be the perfect fit for the Whites.

He holds bags of pace and a reliable end product and should he make the move to Elland Road, he would undoubtedly feature regularly in the Championship with the prospect of Premier League football in the not so distant future.

The three teams dropping down this season don’t appear as strong as they did last year and that will breed confidence amongst Leeds and others that they can compete for the top two this year. However, it will largely depend on who they manage to retain during what is expected to be a tough summer for the club.
