Leeds: Coventry are “willing to take the risk” of losing Gustavo Hamer for free.

The midfielder has been extensively linked with a move to Elland Road this summer.

Leeds United have been advised that £12 million could be enough to bring Coventry City defensive midfielder Gustavo Hamer to the club this summer, but the Sky Blues are still keen to keep him.

Gustavo Hamer is leaving Coventry.

The Dutchman’s contract is set to expire in less than a year, so this is the Sky Blues’ last chance to cash in if they do not want to lose their greatest asset for free. He’ll have plenty of suitors if he leaves, having established himself as their overall top-performing player with a WhoScored match rating of 7.26 last season, barring Luke McNally, who has departed.

Building Society Arena manager Mark Robins was recently asked about conjecture surrounding the 26-year-old’s future at the Championship club, and he responded, “I have nothing new to add on that or share with anyone.” I believe that will become obvious as we progress, but that is entirely up to Gus.”

Last month, Voetbal Rotterdam reported that the central talisman had been offered a new contract by the Midlands outfit but had yet to sign it due to interest from the Whites, Fulham, and Burnley. If Daniel Farke wants to secure his target in the final weeks of the window, he now knows how much money will need to be put on the table.

Gustavo Hamer is on his way to Leeds.
According to Football Insider, Leeds and other interested parties will have to spend “upwards” of £12m to get Hamer this summer. The Elland Road club is said to be still monitoring the midfielder, though Coventry are said to be “desperate” to keep him as they strive to return to the top six.

Following the £20 million sale of Viktor Gyokeres to Sporting CP, City are “likely to ask” for an eight-figure amount and are “willing to risk” losing him for nothing next summer after rejecting a player-plus-cash approach from Burnley.

Gustavo Hamer has how many goals?
Last season in the Championship, Hamer tallied up 19 goal contributions (ten assists and nine goals) in 41 games, which is a very outstanding return for someone who is naturally a defensive midfielder, so a move to Leeds would be a big coup.

According to FBRef, the Itajai native rated in the 96th percentile for shots and fired 174 crosses into the box, more than any of his colleagues, with this excellent form in the final third earning him nine man-of-the-match honours from WhoScored.

Coventry‘s “creative” magician, as described by journalist Josh Bunting, who can work in five distinct positions, is also represented by the same agency, CAA Stellar, as Luke Ayling, Daniel James, and Patrick Bamford. This existing connection that his representative already has with the club could offer them a slight advantage if they try to close a deal in the coming weeks.
