Leeds tipped to sign Cunha and transform him into a £50m star after one year - Campbell

The door has opened for Leeds United to seal the “cheap money” signing of Hertha Berlin attacker Matheus Cunha.

That is the view of former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 22-year-old’s reported price tag.

According to the Express (13th July), Cunha has been told by the German club that he can leave if his £30million valuation is matched.

SportBILD (via Sports Witness 12th May) claimed Leeds have ‘concrete interest’ in the Brazilian forward, who is keen to embark on a new challenge this summer.

He has four years remaining on his contract with Hertha Berlin.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of Cunha’s price tag, Campbell said: “That would be good value for money.

“When you look at the quality of player, his statistical return and his age, it is cheap money. Let’s be honest, it is cheap money.

“If he comes to the Premier League and has a good season you are putting £20million on that price tag straight away.

“I think the way Leeds play would suit him. He would get assists and goals in that system I think.

“He would fast be a coveted commodity. I think it would be great business.”

Cunha contributed eight goals and eight assists in 28 appearances in the 2020-21 campaign.

He also boasts an impressive 15 goals in 16 games for Brazil’s Under-23s.
