Leeds United pursuit of Sebastian Driussi more serious than German rivals as update emerges

Leeds United are more serious about their pursuit of striker Sebastian Driussi than the German clubs rivalling them for his signature, says Cesar Luis Merlo.

The MLS hotshot was linked with a move to the Premier League (9 November) with Leeds among the interested parties.

But a fresh report from South American football journalist Merlo, on his personal Twitter account (9 November) says there are two Bundesliga clubs also showing an interest but not as intensely as the Whites.

Americas invasion?

The 49ers are inevitably on their way to Elland Road in the future as a long-term owner, and it looks as though they’re keen on having people around them that they know.

Americans Jesse Marsch, Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson are already in the club while the likes of Kai Wagner have also been linked from the MLS too.

Druissi would be slightly different to Wagner though, having already had experience of playing in Europe with Zenit St Petersburg and shining in the MLS with 25 goals to his name in the most recent season for Austin FC.

If he was able to come straight in and perform to a similar standard in the Premier League, then his goals would solve a huge issue in the current Leeds side and potentially save Marsch’s job at the club.

Fans are demanding and want to see an improvement on the pitch, for the team to move away from a relegation fight and up the table as an established Premier League team.
