Leeds United have joined AFC Bournemouth in the race to sign Saint-Ettiene winger Max Gradel, according to FLW sources.
The Yorkshire club are targetting a move for the former Leeds winger, and are ready to battle AFC Bournemouth for his signature.
The 26-year-old left Elland Road for French side Saint-Etienne in 2011 for an undisclosed fee.
Gradel, who has a year left on his contract with Saint-Etienne, came close to joining West Ham United in January.
The Elland Road outfit are eager to add some depth and pace to their midfield and see Gradel as an ideal addition to the squad.
Dave Hockaday’s side have already signed four players, following the signings of Tommaso Bianchi, Marco Silvestri, Stuart Taylor and Souleymane Doukara.
