Pedro Rebocho could be the cheap Joe Bryan that Leeds are looking for

Leeds United are interested in signing Guingamp defender Pedro Rebocho according to Kick Off.

What’s the story?

The 23-year-old left back came through the ranks at Benfica and moved to the Ligue 1 side Guingamp last summer and made 21 appearances over the season, registering two assists.

Even though Guingamp’s campaign was fairly uninspiring, Rebocho was one of the few bright sparks, and the side averaged a 42 win percentage when he started, as opposed to 21 per cent when he didn’t.

While no fee is mentioned in the article, Leeds may have to pay over the odds to sign the player valued at £1.35million on Transfermarkt, as he is only one year into his contract at Guingamp and has already shown a lot of promise.

Solid option for Leeds

Left-back is clearly an area which needs investment as a number of players tried to fill the gap in the team last year before youngster Tom Pearce claimed it towards the end of the season.

Leeds are considering signing Bristol City flyer Joe Bryan, as are a number of other clubs, but reports suggest that the Robins could be seeking as much as £10million for the 23-year-old.

If Leeds want to save some money but still buy top-class talent, Rebocho could be a much cheaper alternative who has experience playing top-flight football.

The wing-backs are key positions if Marcelo Bielsa employs his 3-3-3-1 formation and at 23, Rebocho can help fill a rather big hole in the Leeds team and still improve.
