It has been a whirlwind 24 hours for Leeds United. Victor Orta has seemingly started to get things going, as reports emerged over Leeds pushing for numerous deals. Junior Firpo was the latest name on the lips of Leeds fans, while Matheus Cunha continues to be a target for the Whites.
Here is the latest Leeds news on a move for Barcelona’s Firpo, Hertha Berlin’s Cunha, and plenty more:
Junior Firpo – Barcelona
SPORT claimed on Monday that Leeds had agreed a move to land the Barcelona defender for a fee of £13million. The 24-year-old has been second fiddle to Jordi Alba for the last two seasons. Now, it is claimed the lure of Leeds has tempted Firpo to join the Whites, elbowing Milan aside.
Matheus Cunha – Hertha Berlin
A report from the Brazilian’s home country, namely UOL Esporte, claim that Leeds and Victor Orta have intensified talks for Cunha. The 22-year-old even replied to a Leeds fans on Instagram over the weekend. Leeds will need to pay between £21.5million and £26million for his signature.
Matheus Pereira – West Brom
Pereira, 25, was brilliant for West Brom last season – having a hand in 17 goals during 33 league games despite relegation. The Express have claimed that Leeds have been offered the chance to sign Pereira, but for now, that has been turned down by Leeds. West Ham and Leicester are keen.
Noa Lang – Club Brugge/Ajax
Brilliant in Brugge’s title success last season, 21-year-old Lang is likely to join the Belgians permanently from Ajax this summer. But that has not deterred Leeds. Fabrizio Romano states that Leeds are considering a move for Lang – but a winger is probably not crucial right now
Amari Miller – Birmingham City
The midfielder becomes the first Leeds signing of the summer, announced by the club on Monday. Lured to Elland Road from Birmingham City, it is believed a deal will reach £1.5million including add-ons. The 18-year-old will be a part of Mark Jackson’s Under-23 side, initially.
