Leeds United-linked Sebastian Driussi watches defeat v Tottenham as fresh speculation emerges
Leeds United linked striker Sebastian Driussi was spotted watching the team’s defeat to Tottenham on Saturday (12 November) after recent speculation linking him to Elland Road.
The Argentine hotshot has been linked with a £13.2m move to link up with Jesse Marsch in the Premier League in January, having scored 25 goals in the MLS this season for Austin FC.
And the 26 year old fed into that speculation by posting on his official Instagram story, via WeAreAustinTV on Twitter, an image of him watching the Whites during their Premier League clash with Spurs at the weekend.
The club are reportedly battling with several clubs for his signature including sides from the Bundesliga, but it’s been reported that it is Leeds’ interest in the player that is most serious currently.
Jesse Marsch has recently admitted to being in the market for a striker once again in January, after failing to sign Charles De Ketelaere, Cody Gakpo and Bamba Dieng among others during the summer.
It’s unlikely that this deal is one that will drag out into a saga like some of the interest in the summer did, but the player is clearly playing up to the news reports.
Driussi is a talented player who has experience playing in Europe in the past, having previously donned the kit of Zenit St Petersburg.
His physicality and technical ability are seemingly well suited to the Premier League and with the Whites absolutely desperate to add a reliable goal threat to the side he could be the ideal solution.
There will be competition for his services but as Leeds showed with their move from Brendan Aaronson in the summer, they’re capable of working to get deals done in the background and if Marsch is serious about bolstering his front line then he should be a serious option.
He’s clearly interested too by playing this game publicly, so it’s one for Leeds fans to keep a real eye on over the World Cup break.
