Leeds United will reportedly target Lyon left-back Maxwel Cornet this summer, as the club look for a replacement for Ezgjan Alioski.

Leeds United have reportedly enquired about Lyon left-back Maxwel Cornet, as the club pursue a deal for a new full-back.

The Whites have been linked with many left-backs this summer, including Noa Lang, Javi Galan, Romain Perraud and Real Madrid's Marcelo, with Ezgjan Alioski looking set to leave Elland Road.

Cornet showed his attacking abilities from full-back last season as he scored two goals and provided five assists in 36 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon.

According to SBNation, Cornet has caught the eye of Marcelo Bielsa because he has shown his versatility, having played as a winger and striker before converting to a left-back.

Bielsa has gained a reputation for converting players into many different positions as shown with Alioski, who was predominantly a winger before playing much of last season as full-back.

Cornet arrived at Lyon in 2015 and has gone on to score 23 goals and produce 11 assists in 251 appearances for the club.
