Leeds United will take-on Arsenal and Wolves in a move for Dijon’s Mounir Chouiar, who is due to be left out of the next league game due to a seemingly imminent departure.

L’Equipe (via GetFootballNewsFrance.com) report that the 21-year old will demand a price of between €15 million and €20 million, with his former club Lens taking 20% of the fee.

Chouiar can play on either wing as well as in-behind the striker, scoring four goals from 20 appearances in his first year in Ligue 1 last season, while scoring twice and assisting once in the French Cup from three appearances.

Overall for Dijon, Chouiar has six goals and one assist from 26 appearances in all competitions, while also holding one cap for the French under-21s.

Following a baptism of fire at Anfield, Leeds look to bolster their squad with a couple new players, with a bid reportedly made for Jordan Lukaku while the Rodrigo De Paul saga drags on.
