Having scored seven goals and provided six assists in the Bundesliga this season, Cunha has attracted significant transfer interest ahead of the fast-approaching transfer window.

 

Premier League club Leeds have been named among the clubs interested in acquiring the services of the Brazilian, who Hertha Berlin are said to be prepared to sell this summer if the price is right.

 

 

It has been claimed that the Bundesliga outfit would sanction a transfer for Cunha, who is contracted with the club until 2024, if they receive a fee in the region of €30m.

 

However, Hertha Berlin are in a stronger position to dictate the terms of a potential sale of Cunha than previously believed, having discreetly extended his deal until 2025 in January, according to German daily Bild.

 

 

Michael Preetz is said to have quietly extended Cunha’s contract by another year before being removed from his role as Hertha Berlin’s sporting director earlier this year.

 

The decision to extend the attacker’s contract until 2025 has put Hertha Berlin in a strong position to dictate the terms of a potential sale this summer.

 

 

Cunha joined Hertha Berlin from RB Leipzig for €18m in January 2020 and it is said that it will take more than double that amount to convince the German club to sell him.

 

Apart from Leeds, AS Monaco, Napoli and Atalanta have also been credited with an interest in the former FC Sion attacker.
