A report from Austrian newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten has given details of the stance taken by Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch on the imminent signing of Brenden Aaronson at Elland Road.
Numerous reports claim that Leeds are closing in on a £23.5million deal to sign the 21-year-old from Salzburg. A player that Leeds made two bids for in the January window.
Now Leeds have remained in the Premier League, and Salzburg’s season is over, Aaronson is on his way. It finally sees Andrea Radrizzani splash the cash on a midfielder, one we have desperately needed for some time.
Marsch has obviously worked alongside Aaronson before, signing him from MLS side Philadelphia Union in January 2021 at Salzburg. It was cut short; Marsch left Salzburg for Leipzig that summer.
Marsch stance on Leeds signing Aaronson: Can he thrive?
The newspaper reports that Marsch is absolutely over the moon at the potential of working with Aaronson again. They claim that Aaronson is an ‘absolute dream player’ for Marsch, which is why Leeds are paying so much.
Aaronson has sparkled for Salzburg since moving to Austria – producing 28 goal involvements in 65 appearances from midfield. His energy, work rate, technical ability and versatility all suit the way Leeds play.
Exciting times for Leeds fans. After survival, it is likely that there will be more to come beyond Aaronson – but there is no doubt, that he is an exciting talent and with Marsch in the dugout, he can certainly thrive.
