Leeds United are being linked with a move for former Netherlands international winger Rajiv van La Parra, according to the Yorkshire Post.
Van La Parra is currently with Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town where he made 33 Premier League outings last season, scoring three times. He joined the Terriers from Wolves, a side he’d been with since 2014.
Van La Parra scored twice in 57 appearances for Wolves after joining them from Dutch side Heerenveen. He was loaned to Brighton and Hove Albion for two months, where he scored twice in six appearances.
The report suggests that Huddersfield are chasing both Belgium winger Anthony Limbombe and Wolves’ Portuguese forward Ivan Cavaleiro. Should they land either it is then suggested Leeds will pounce for the £3.6m rated player.
Van La Parra is the half-brother of Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum and Giliano Wijnaldum, of Willem II. Continuing his family football pedigree, his cousin, Giovanni Drenthe, plays in Surinam while another, Royston Drenthe retired from professional football.
The transfer market is as complicated as the housing market, teams are in chains waiting for one sale to drop before they can move on their targets.
It seems any move for Van La Parra is going to be dictated by what else happens at Huddersfield, so Leeds will just have to wait and see if they can land one of their numerous targets.
