Bayer Leverkusen are reportedly interested in signing Crystal Palace striker Jean-Philippe Mateta, according to Sky Sports.
The French forward, who has a contract with Palace until June 2026, has scored two goals and provided three assists in 18 appearances this season.
Mateta, who previously played for Lyon, is known for his pace, power, and finishing ability. He would be a good addition to Leverkusen’s squad, who are currently in second place in the Bundesliga.
Xabi Alonso is a big fan of Mateta and believes he can be a key player for Leverkusen.
The Spanish coach worked with Mateta at Lyon and was impressed with his potential. He believes that Mateta has the ability to play at the highest level.
A move to Leverkusen would be a good opportunity for Mateta to get more playing time and prove himself in a top league.
The German club are in a good position to challenge for the Bundesliga title this season and Mateta could help them achieve their goals.
