🚨BREAKING NEWS : Leeds United is reportedly targeting a forward who is eager to secure a long-term contract in England


Leeds United are interested in Canadian Liam Millar and are monitoring Basel ahead of this year’s Copa America, according to The Athletic.

The online resource is on Sunday [23. June] reported that Burnley and Sheffield United are also in the running for the jet-setting striker, known for his pace, technical quality and mature decision-making, with Premier League sides also interested.

The 24-year-old, who is currently with Basel in Switzerland, is understood to be keen to pen a long-term deal with England this summer after spending a string of loan spells in recent seasons.

Leeds United are targeting former Liverpool youth star Liam Millar

Millar was one of Preston North End’s most influential players last season in the Championship with five goals and five assists as he agreed a one-year loan deal.

With 96 appearances for Basel since July 2021, the player appears set for a return to England, which could leave Leeds at the forefront of a move.

The Whites will surely be hoping to secure promotion back to the Premier League at the earliest opportunity and Millar could play a major role in that if he signs.

Given his ability as a left-wing substitute, as well as a centre-forward, the 24-year-old could be the perfect signing should Crysencio Summerville leave Elland Road this summer.

Of course, there are many moving parts to this scenario, but given the level of interest surrounding the Dutchman, it is not out of the question that Daniel Farke will enter the 2024/25 campaign without a star striker.

Millar, who is currently away at the Copa America with Canada, has already proven himself in the division and will be keen to show his former Liverpool side why he should be given a bigger opportunity before moving on in 2021.

With two loan spells at Kilmarnock, one at Charlton Athletic and the other at Preston, it’s understandable why the player wants to settle down this summer.
