Although Yusuf Demir hasn’t played a game for SK Rapid in the young season, the 19-year-old is still a hot transfer stock.
After the U19 European Championships in Slovakia, the jewel entered the Hütteldorfer preparations late and then had to struggle with adductor problems. According to coach Ferdinand Feldhofer, these have now been overcome and Demir has returned to team training.
This will also allow international scouts to take a closer look at the left foot, which the US media is now linking with a move to the MLS. “MLS News” reports on “Twitter” that Los Angeles FC have signaled their interest in the youngster to Rapid.
The current leaders of the Western Conference still have a place available for a “Designated Player” and would like to fill it with Demir. But the team around Gareth Bale and Giorgio Chiellini has to hurry: the transfer window in the USA closes on Thursday.
#LAFC has reached out to Rapid Wien with interest in Austrian winger Yusuf Demir, according to a source close to the club.
The 19 year-old spent the 1st half of last season on loan at Barca, making 6 apps, before returning to 🇦🇹 in February.
