Cisse could struggle to win over Leeds United fans

Leeds United are keeping tabs on MK Dons midfielder Ousseynou Cisse, according to The Sun on Sunday.

What’s the word?

On page 8 of the May 27 edition of the newspaper, it was claimed that Leeds are considering a summer swoop for the 27-year-old.

However, the Mali international, who has been capped twice for his country, is also reportedly wanted by Blackburn Rovers, Augsburg and Club Brugge.

Whoever the winning suitor ends up being, Cisse is expected to be relatively cheap considering that MK Dons were relegated from League One.

The midfielder moved to the Dons last summer and ended up making 32 league appearances for the club.

Is Cisse good enough?

Due to the disappointment of falling behind in the battle for promotion, Leeds are certainly in need of a decent transfer window.

During the Championship season, the Yorkshire club experienced a managerial change and club owner Andrea Radrizzani stole headlines with his outbursts in the media.

Cisse would certainly provide another option to Leeds, as well as versatility given that he can also play at centre-back, despite predominantly being a defensive midfielder.

However, the Mali international will not get the fans too excited, and he is not the calibre of player that the club need in order to launch a serious promotion challenge next season.

Nevertheless, he could become a solid squad member.
