However, with the departure of Thiago to Liverpool, Cuisance was expected to remain at Bayern for the season.
The situation has changed, with head coach Hansi Flick telling Cuisance in the past week that he can’t guarantee him game time.
FC Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, who brought in the talented Frenchman, has also opened the door for a transfer.
Salihamidzic will only sanction an outright sale or loan with the obligation to buy.
Bielsa wants Cuisance
A number of clubs have come forward upon hearing about Cuisance’s availability in recent days.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United are the most serious suitor, reports L’Equipe.
Bielsa sees Cuisance as a future international star and would like to make him a central part of the Leeds project.
The Argentine coach asked Leeds bosses to make an offer and the English club have obliged.
It is unclear how much Leeds have offered, but Bayern rate Cuisance in the region of €20m.
As things stand, Leeds are the closest to signing Cuisance and hope to clinch the deal before the transfer window shuts.
