Brest defender Romain Perraud tops Leeds summer shopping list

Brest defender Romain Perraud is a target for Leeds United.

The Athletic reports Leeds will target a new left-back in the summer, with Ligue 1's Perraud named as the number one priority at present.

Perraud had been tentatively linked with a move to Elland Road previously, and now the club is indeed interested in the Stade Brest full-back who is renowned for his attacking influence.

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has rotated between Stuart Dallas and Gjanni Alioski at the position so far this season, though the latter is in the final year of his contract and could depart on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Dallas has played in central midfield and is perhaps better suited to a central position.
