Leeds United cannot match the European giants interested in Pascal Struijk and he may quit this summer.
That is according to former Premier League goalscorer Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the in-form Dutchman’s future at Elland Road.
Dutch outlet De Telegraaf reports that both Leicester City and Napoli are keen on the 21-year-old.
The same report claims that Belgium manager Roberto Martinez is hoping to persuade Struijk to play for his side, for whom he is eligible, rather than the Netherlands.
The interest in Struijk is flattering for Leeds, claims Campbell, but the Whites might struggle to see off suitors for his signature given the status of the clubs interested.
He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “Now, teams have started to see Leeds players and think: ‘Ooh, he’s good.’
“This is where the vultures start to circle and want to pick apart that Leeds squad because they’ve done really well.
“Can they fend it off? I’m sure they have the financial power but the difficulty is that Struijk or other players might look at going to other clubs because they see more opportunity there.
“Leicester have been doing really well. It’s Leeds first season back in the Premier League and bigger clubs will be sniffing about.”
Struijk has now started 10 of the last 11 matches for Leeds in the Premier League.
Predominantly a centre-back, the youngster joined United in 2019.
