EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Leeds United are lining up a move for Heracles attacker Brandley Kuwas, Football Insider sources understand.
Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen is keen to add to his attacking options in January in a bid to bolster his side promotion ambitions and Kuwas is on their list of targets.
A well-placed source has told Football Insider that Leeds officials have made contact with Kuwas’ representatives to sound him out over a possible move to Elland Road.
Kuwas has caught the eye for Heracles so far this season and three goals and nine assists in just 14 Eredivisie games.
A number of clubs across Europe have been alerted to Kuwas’ potential, but Leeds are hoping to steal a march on their rivals in the race for the winger’s signature.
Leeds scouts have regular checks on Kuwas this season and they have been impressed from what they have seen from the 25-year-old.
Heracles are reluctant to lose Kuwas midway through the season, but they are bracing themselves for offers for the Curacao international next month.
In other Leeds United transfer news, Football Insider can reveal the club are working on a deal to sign a Football League sensation in the form of his life.
