The Telegraaf and The Athletic have reported talks between Leeds United and Feyenoord for the signing of winger, Luis Sinisterra.

The 23-year-old now looks to be a prime target for The Whites while a deal for Raphinha’s departure is still ongoing. Sinisterra has seemingly agreed personal terms with the Yorkshire club, with negotiations ongoing for a fee while Leeds patiently await a resolution to the Raphinha transfer saga.

Sinisterra has experience of playing across the front-three, but primarily as a left-winger, playing 113 times for Feyenoord, scoring 35 goals and assisting a further 19. The 23-year-old is awaiting his first goal/assist for his home nation of Columbia after earning five caps.

The 2021/22 campaign brought a grand total of 23 goals and 14 assists from 49 appearances between the Eredivisie and Europa Conference League, where Feyenoord reached the final before being beaten by Jose Mourinho’s Roma side.

The tricky Columbian is light on his feet, comfortable with the ball, with a knack for direct attacking football and an eye for goal. The Whites are set to “shatter” Feyenoord’s outgoing transfer record:

“Sinisterra will have to cost between 20 and 30 million euros and it is inconceivable that Feyenoord will be satisfied with 20 million.” - The Telegraaf

Meanwhile, Leeds continue to chase deals for Tyler Adams and Charles de Ketelaere.
