Leeds United Transfer News: Illan Meslier Wants to leave

Leeds United Transfer News: Even if Leeds United remain in the Premier League next season, sources say that Illan Meslier is eager to leave the club. The Blues have kept a close eye on Meslier and consider him a top target.

The 23-year-old player signed a contract extension in 2021 that keeps him under contract until 2026. Leeds have reportedly set their star goalkeeper’s price at £40 million ahead of the summer transfer window, as reported by Football Insider.

Although both Tottenham and Manchester United have shown interest in the goalkeeper, Chelsea is eager to close a deal this summer. If the team gets relegated to the Championship next season, the Frenchman will be one of three senior players who will leave.

Nonetheless, they still face Liverpool, Man City, Newcastle United, and Tottenham in their battle to remain in the Premier League. After impressing during a loan stint in Yorkshire, FC Lorient sent Meslier to Elland Road in July 2020.
