Wolves fear they could be forced to sell Morgan Gibbs-White amid Leeds United link

Leeds United are reportedly keen to sign Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolves in the summer window.

According to The Atheltic, the Whites could face strong competition from the likes of Southampton and Nottingham Forest for his signature.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder is valued at around £20million, and he has been offered a new deal at the club.

TalkSPORT journalist, Alex Crook has suggested that the former England under-21 ace is stalling on signing a new contract.

Wolves are said to “fear” that they could be forced to cash in on the player, who is also attracting interest from abroad.

The young midfielder wants assurance from Bruno Lage that he will be a regular starter next season before committing his future.

He was superb last season at Sheffield United on loan where he managed 12 goals and 10 assists.

Morgan-Gibbs would be a good signing for the club, but the price quoted for him is too high.

Leeds can get a proven quality player like Takumi Minamino from Liverpool for a lesser amount.

Victor Orta is an admirer of Gibbs-White [Yorkshire Evening Post], but the Whites probably will ditch plans to add another attacking midfielder after signing Brenden Aaronson.

They can shift attention elsewhere, with signing a defensive midfielder being a top priority.

Having said that, the entire transfer plans could take a whole new turn this summer if Raphinha moves on.

The dazzling Brazilian has been linked with an exit, but as of now, Leeds are yet to receive any formal offers for him.
