Noni Madueke's value rises every game at PSV amid interest from Leeds United
Leeds United are among a number of clubs who have approached PSV with an enquiry about forward Noni Madueke, according to the London Evening Standard.
The newspaper reports that Crystal Palace, Southampton and Bayern Munich have also enquired about the 21-year-old, while Tottenham are also interested in re-signing their former youth prospect.
It is understood that Madueke’s value is rising with each game he plays for PSV while Donyell Malen’s move to Borussia Dortmund has also bumped up the England Under-21 international’s price-tag.
On the rise
Madueke’s form for PSV has been superb.
Last season, the ex-Spurs attacker scored nine goals and supplied eight assists in 32 appearances across all competitions for PSV while he’s also started this term brilliantly with two goals and an assist in three Champions League qualifier outings.
Madueke is versatile and can play on the right-wing or as a centre-forward but if Leeds are to sign the dazzling ace, they’re going to want him so he can play in a wide position.
According to The Athletic journalist Phil Hay, Leeds are open to signing a new winger before the transfer window closes.
Based on Leeds’ strategy so far this summer, they have gone for players who are quite young to add to the Under-23s and even the first-team with 20-year-old Norwegian Kristoffer Klaesson coming in to serve as Marcelo Bielsa’s new second-choice goalkeeper.
Madueke is someone who’s on the rise, is impressing for a top club in the Netherlands and performing well in European football.
He’s exactly the kind of player Leeds should be looking to bring in before the summer transfer window closes.
However, we doubt that Madueke would come cheaply due to Malen’s exit from PSV and the London-born player’s form for the Dutch outfit.
But if Leeds can sell a player like Helder Costa, that could definitely go a long way to helping secure the Eindhoven forward.
In other Leeds United news, fans want this senior player to stay after Phil Hay mooted a loan exit for him.
