have reportedly opened talks to sign Leeds star Crysencio Summerville, who is also a target for and Liverpool.

It was reported last month that the Blues and Reds were among many clubs .

Newcastle, , West Ham, Bournemouth and Fulham are also monitoring the winger’s situation.

And the likelihood of a transfer increased at the end of May when to the top-flight after losing the Championship play-off final to Southampton.

Missing out on promotion and the riches that come with it could have dire financial consequences for Daniel Farke’s club who must now sell some of their most prized assets.

And it looks like Summerville will be the first to go in the fire sale, with reporting that Brighton have begun talks with Leeds for the 22-year-old who is valued at upwards of £30million.

The Dutchman moved to Elland Road in 2020 for around just £1m and has since blossomed into their star player, scoring 21 goals and making 10 assists in 49 games across all competitions this season.

For his efforts, Summerville was named Championship Player of the Season, and still has two years left to run on his Leeds contract.

‘He is playing an outstanding season in terms of performances, end product and also his willingness to work for the team, to be there and deliver on a daily basis even in training, otherwise you can’t deliver consistency in this league,’ Farke said of his talisman earlier in the season.

‘You have to be on it each and every day on the training pitch but also with good habits in nutrition, sleep and recovery.

‘We don’t have to speak about the potential of Cree, the sky is the limit with his potential but to show consistency this is crucial. It’s no coincidence he has delivered many end products.’
