Leeds United face competition from Lyon for French left-back Romain Perraud.
The 23-year old Brest defender is a target for Leeds this summer and is quickly developing a reputation as one of the best young players in his position.
Perraud, a France U21 international, is an attack minded defender who has scored three goals this season and six assists. However, the boyhood Chelsea fan’s performances have also alerted Lyon who are chasing Champions League qualification and Marseille.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have impressed this season but have looked shaky defensively
Leeds want Perraud for their left-back berth as Ezgjan Alioski is out of contract in the summer and talking to Galatasaray.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men have impressed during their first season back in the Premier League, but have looked vulnerable in defence at times.
The Whites have scored 49, but have also let in 49 at the other end – more than relegation threatened Burnley and Fulham. With safety secured, Bielsa will be looking to bolster his back-line with hopes of pushing further up the table next season.
