Nottingham Forest are interested in Leeds United youngster Crysencio Summerville, according to The Athletic.
The Dutchman is down the pecking order at Elland Road and is seeking regular game time.
Sheffield United are also in the mix to sign him this summer, with his contract due to expire next summer.
Summerville signed for Leeds in 2020, joining on a three-year deal from Feyenoord where he came through the youth academy.
The 20-year-old made six appearances for Leeds last season; with all of his outings coming from the bench.
Now, he’s got an appetite for regular action and he may consider a move to play first-team football.
Forest are in the market for new attacking players ahead of next season’s Premier League campaign.
Summerville primarily plays on the right wing, although he can play on the opposite flank if required to do so.
The youngster boasts electric pace and is typically very skilful when in possession of the ball.
Summerville perhaps doesn’t have the ability to come in and be a regular starter for a Premier League club, although he’d be a useful squad player.
The player was previously praised by former Leeds man Ben Parker. He called him ‘absolutely frightening‘ following an eye-catching display for the under-23 outfit.
Forest interested in Summerville and he could be a future star
This could be a decent signing for Forest to make.
He is a young player and has the ability to really begin fulfilling his potential in the next few years.
Forest will likely want some players with more Premier League experience this summer but that doesn’t mean they should discount youngsters.
Summerville will likely feel that he’d get more game time at Forest, given that Leeds are a more established top-flight club.
Given his contract situation, he’s unlikely to cost the earth and this is a transfer that the fans could get behind.
Rumour rating: 7/10 – naturally any time that young talent is targeted it will be met with glee among the fan base.
There is a lot to like about Forest signing Summerville; not least that he’s a player with bags of ability and some top-flight experience to his name.
It’s unlikely that the player would be a regular starter but that doesn’t matter.
He’s a player that would tick a lot of Dane Murphy’s boxes and he could thrive under the management of Steve Cooper over the next few years.
