Leeds United have been handed big boosts in their pursuit for new attacking options for The Premier League, as Norwich’s Buendia and Brenford’s Benrahma expected to be sold this summer.

Both sides will spend next season in the second tier and now Premier League clubs are beginning to circle like sharks for their top talent. Several reports from all over have stated that both Buendia and Benrahma , two players that Leeds have targeted, have been made available for around £20 million each.

23-year old Buendia made seven assists and scoring one goal in what was a tough season for Norwich, despite creating plenty of chances, his 29 chances created in December standing at a league high that month.On top of this, Transfermarkt have Buendia as having involvement in 30% in Norwich’s goals, which is a huge contribution in any team, never mind The Premier League.

The versatile midfielder can play on either wing or in the middle, played a huge role in Norwich’s promotion campaign a season earlier, and is said to be available now that Norwich have returned to The Championship.

Following on from Brentford’s play-off final defeat, Said Benrahma could be out the door from Griffin Park, following reports of Ollie Watkins’ buy-out clause should Brentford not get promoted.

Benrahma has been one of the most potent attackers in The Championship over the past year, and has now been made available for around £25 million. The Algerian scored 17 goals and assisted nine in The Championship, playing across the front-three for Brentford, while also having a goal participation rate of 32%in the second tier (Transfermarkt).

Both will be highly sought after, in a transfer saga that will be monitored closely in the summer market.
