Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu interesting Leeds, Roma

Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu is on Leeds United's radar.

Voetbal International's Freek Jansen revealed on Studio Voetbal that Leeds, AS Roma and Sevilla are all watching the player 'closely'.

Kokcu has already featured in 24 games this term for Feyenoord, scoring two goals and picking up three assists, helping them reach the UEFA Europa Conference League after progressing through the qualifiers.

The 20-year-old has stood out since breaking into the first-team at the Dutch club, making 63 appearances and also earned his first Turkey cap last summer.

Naturally a more forward-thinking midfielder, Kökcü would give Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa an extra option in that area, especially given the injury to Patrick Bamford which forced Rodrigo to play as the lone striker.
