Leeds United have submitted a £20 million bid for Stuggart left-back Borna Sosa, according to Croatian agent, Franjo Vranjkovic.
His quotes in a report by Croatian outlet Sportske Novosti cite Leeds as a club who have bid for the 23-year-old’s services having bagged 10 assists in The Bundesliga so far, with other Premier League clubs showing interest.
Vranjkovic also specifically states that Sosa should be moving to The Premier League for a price of around £20 million, with Sosa expected to be first or second choice left-back at Leeds should he sign in the summer.
A lot of talk has surrounded Sosa’s name recently as he tried to convert his national representation from Croatia to Germany after an impressive season this year. However, he has been denied this switch and will remain a Croatian international.
Borna Sosa link is an interesting one. In terms of attacking, there hasn't been much better in Germany this season. Defensively is where I'd be concerned, although he is only 23 so time to develop that side of his game.

As previously mentioned, Sosa has 10 assists from 24 league appearances this season, a massive improvement on his last couple of seasons at Stuggart, who were relegated in 2018/19 as Sosa got one assist from 12 matches. Stuggart came straight back up last season, with Sosa scoring one and assisting three from a further 12 appearances.
Sosa also played on the wing during his time at Dinamo Zagreb, with his best season in Croatia producing four assists from 21 appearances. But as shown above, his defensive stats are not the greatest, but we know that Bielsa can improve his players if they are willing to work hard.
