Premier League side Leeds United are demanding £30million to sell 23 year old French goalkeeper Illan Meslier, amid interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

According to Football Insider via Sportskeeda, Leeds United consider the 23 year old as one of their most valuable assets. This is due to his consistent excellence between the sticks, as well as his potential for future growth and development.

Leeds United have struggled this season and are currently in 19th place and should they get relegated, Meslier is expected to leave at the end of the season.

Despite his uncertain future with the club, Meslier is contracted to Leeds until the summer of 2026. He was signed permanently from Lorient for a reported £5 million fee in 2020, following a successful loan spell with Leeds. 

Meslier has made 30 appearances for Leeds United in the Premier League this season, keeping five clean sheets in the process.

Tottenham Hotspur is also reportedly interested in the Leeds United goalkeeper as a possible replacement for Hugo Lloris.
