Leeds United ‘expecting Illan Meslier bids in summer’

Leeds United are reportedly bracing themselves for summer interest in goalkeeper Illan Meslier.

The 21-year-old has been Marcelo Bielsa‘s number one since the Whites were promoted to the Premier League in 2020, and he is regarded as one of the club’s brightest prospects for the future.

However, The Athletic reports that Leeds are expecting to receive bids for the France Under-21 international when the summer transfer window opens.

The report adds that the Whites are also expecting to receive strong interest in midfielder Kalvin Phillips and winger Raphinha, who were both linked with January exits.

Meslier has kept 23 clean sheets in 71 appearances across all competitions for Leeds since joining from Lorient for around £5m in August 2019, and he is under contract at Elland Road until June 2026.

Phillips and Raphinha, meanwhile, will both see their contracts expire in June 2024 and they are both valued in excess of £40m.
