Leeds United have not yet agreed a fee with Bayern Munich for midfielder Michael Cuisance, according to FootMercato.
The French news outlet claims that Bayern want just over £18.2million for the 21-year-old but talks are progressing between the German giants and Leeds.
It is understood that Bayern are already in the hunt to sign a replacement for Cuisance and FootMercato adds that the “next few hours will be decisive” in this transfer story.
Cuisance does not appear to be in Hansi Flick’s immediate first-team plans at Bayern with him playing just once – as a substitute – this season.
He wasn’t in the squad that lost to Hoffenheim at the weekend and amid speculation linking him with a move to Elland Road, it does appear as though his time in Bavaria is running out.
The former Borussia Monchengladbach player is a top prospect in German football.
According to the Bundesliga website, Cuisance is similar to Arsenal and Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil who “has a wand of a left foot”.
Leeds could do with a bit of extra quality adding to their central midfield options before the transfer window closes next week.
Although the club can technically sign new players all the way up until mid-October, they cannot sign anyone from overseas past October 5.
Cuisance sounds as though he would be a top addition to the Leeds squad.
It’s not every day your club is in talks to sign a Bayern Munich player.
