According to sources, Leeds United are interested in Fenerbahce defender Bright Osayi-Samuel.

Crystal Palace and Wolves are also said to be interested, with Palace presently regarded as the favourites to capture the Nigerian international, according to TEAMtalk. Leeds wants to sign the promising defender in January, adding to the competition.

Leeds’ interest in Bright Osayi-Samuel indicates that the club is thinking about strengthening certain areas, particularly at full-back, as the January transfer window approaches. The 49ers’ ownership and manager Daniel Farke appear to have recognized potential avenues for squad strengthening.

Osayi-Samuel’s mobility as a clever winger turned full-back complements Daniel Farke’s rapid attacking approach. Given Leeds’ recent outstanding performances, the arrival of a player like Osayi-Samuel could boost their attacking prowess even further.

Djed Spence’s outstanding post-injury performances appear to have alleviated Leeds United’s left-back concerns. Given Archie Gray’s outstanding form on the other side, a January loan move might be a more practical option. Leeds’ quest could be complicated by competition from Wolves and Crystal Palace, both of which promise immediate Premier League play.

The now-converted full-back previously played in the Championship with Queens Park Rangers from 2017 to 2021, thus he is used to playing in the EFL if a move occurs.
