Leeds United are set to make their first bid for Swansea City winger Daniel James, according to Alan Nixon of the Sun.
Marcelo Bielsa has made no secret of his desire to add another winger to his ranks and it has been rumoured for a while now that James is high on his list, with a move likely to take a big step forward soon.
Taking to Twitter, Nixon wrote: “SWANSEA. Would prefer to sell others than lose Dan James. But LEEDS will come in with an offer. Montero wanted in Mexico.”
The 21-year-old has burst onto the scene for Graham Potter’s side this season, scoring once and assisting four more in the Championship.
With his contract set to expire in the summer, however, the Swans face a dilemma on whether to cash in on the winger now or risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season.
If he does make the move to Elland Road he would become the second player to do so after Real Madrid shot-stopper Kiko Casilla arrived at the club last week.
This is a horrible situation for Swansea to be in.
Obviously, they will want to hang on to the exciting young winger, but at the same time, it is unlikely that their financial position will allow them to do so.
It feels like it is probably best if they get as much as they can for him now.
