Leeds United are set to table a £7million offer for Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien, according to a recent report from The Sun.
O’Brien has been with the Terriers’ first-team since 2018, after coming through the club’s academy system at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The 22-year-old has gone on to make 82 appearances in total for the Yorkshire-based side, who are managed by former Leeds coach Carlos Corberan.
That includes one from this year’s campaign, where Huddersfield Town are currently sat 22nd in the Championship table, after their opening two matches this term.
The Sun now claim that Leeds are set to make an improved offer to Huddersfield for O’Brien’s services, after being knocked back in their first approach for the midfielder.
Football Insider had previously revealed that O’Brien is keen on pursuing a move to Leeds United this summer, amid their rumoured interest in landing his signature.
Crystal Palace are also rumoured to be interested in signing O’Brien this summer, and Leeds are evidently keen to strike a deal with the Championship club for the midfielder’s services at the earliest of opportunities.
Huddersfield Town are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they take on Preston North End, in what could potentially be a tricky test for the Terriers.

It’s not a surprise to see them pushing ahead with their interest in the midfielder.
O’Brien has impressed in the Championship, and was a rare bright spark in a disappointing season for Huddersfield Town last season, as they narrowly avoided relegation into the third tier of English football.
Leeds will know that Palace are also keen on signing the 22-year-old, so they’re wasting no time in submitting an improved offer for him this summer.
With O’Brien reportedly being keen on a move to Elland Road as well, it’ll be interesting to see what the next few weeks holds for his future at Huddersfield.
