Latest Leeds transfer news on Minamino, Dagba and Roca as summer window opens

The summer window officially opened last week and Leeds are looking to add to their two signings in Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen. Marc Roca is expected to become the club’s third addition.

Here are the latest Leeds updates as we prepare for another big week of activity at Elland Road – including news on Takumi Minamino, PSG’s Colin Dagba and Bayern midfielder Roca:

Minamino to Monaco

Leeds have been strongly linked with Liverpool’s Minamino. Fans were very excited when Leeds social media officer Craig Wilson posted a picture of the Japan star alongside Raphinha following a recent friendly.

But it appears Leeds are falling behind in the race for the Reds man. That is because Monaco are set to reimburse some of the money received for Aurelien Tchouameni, in Minamino. The Times say the Ligue 1 club are leading the charge.

Dagba linked, the right move?

French outlet Foot Mercato say Leeds are showing interest in PSG right-back Dagba, with the youngster keen on leaving PSG. Strasbourg are in talks, while Frankfurt, Villarreal, Leeds and Mainz also want him.

But do Leeds need a right-back – after bringing in Kristensen? Yes, Dagba is somewhat versatile, sometimes seen on the left. Firstly, though, he is a right-back. Leeds also have Luke Aylin, Jamie Shackleton and Cody Drameh.

Leeds winning race for Roca

Finishing on an exciting note. 90Min say Leeds are leading the charge for 25-year-old Roca and hope to get a deal tied up this week. That is, despite interest from six other clubs – five of which will be in Europe next season.

Frankfurt and Sevilla in the Champions League, Betis in the Europa League and both West Ham and Villarreal in the Conference League. Wolves are also keen. But it appears Leeds are edging closer to a £12million deal.
