Leeds United fans on Twitter are excited after news emerged that their club had bid for Croatia international Ivan Sunjic.
The Daily Mail wrote a report stating that the Yorkshire club had bid for the midfielder, but the Whites also face competition from Birmingham City for his signature.
The Croatian looks like he could have what it takes to replace the Englishman in Marcelo Bielsa’s system.
The youngster is a Europa League regular, having appeared eight times in the competition last term.
Aged just 22, he could be the type of player Marcelo Bielsa wants to work his magic on, and understandably the prospect of signing a Europa League level midfielder has excited a number of United supporters.

Ivan Sunjic, on paper would be a cracking signing if its true. #lufc

Would definitely welcome this signing 100% but all depends on if it’s a replacement signing or not. We do need more cover in the KP position because Foreshaw isn’t the right player in that role. Just hopefully it’s not a signing to cover a potential sale.

Could be a very good addition with a coach like Marcelo moulding him. The same he had done with Klich and Phillips

He’s class watched him a few weeks ago I’d love to sign him hopefully to replace forshaw and not Phillips

If we sign Ivan Sunjic on a perm I will be extremely satisfied #lufc

I’ll second that.

That’s incredible. If we get him, he’ll be an immediate fan favorite, I’m sure. He even has Pirlo’s flowing locks. pic.twitter.com/o0Ug4WwNH6
