With Leeds opening their account in this summer’s transfer window thanks to the arrival of Brenden Aaronson, rumours are aplenty. Here are three new players Leeds have been linked with, over the weekend:
Tyler Adams – RB Leipzig
USA ace Adams, 23, has emerged as a regular for Leipzig over the last couple of seasons – after swapping one of Jesse Marsch’s old clubs for another in Leipzig, in New York Red Bulls. He worked under Marsch at NYRB and Leipzig.
Twitter page MLS Soccer claim that sources have informed them that Leeds are interested. Leeds and Benfica are said to be the ‘most-interested’. It is widely known that Adams has a release clause of £32.5million (Metro).
Kenedy – Chelsea
Mail claim Kenedy, 26, is also a target for Leeds. The Brazilian is about to enter the last 12 months of his contract at Stamford Bridge, where he played just three times during the 2021-22 campaign.
Newcastle fans will tell you that Kenedy, who spent 18 months on Tyneside during a loan from Chelsea, is brilliant. Able to play in numerous positions, he would give Leeds some flair, some aggression and some much-needed cover.
Gustavo Hamer – Coventry City
Brazil-born Hamer has been excellent for another season in the Championship. Clocking up 10 assists, he also scored three goals for Coventry in 2021-22. Sussex Live reports Leeds are keen, but so are four others.
Celtic and Rangers could both be in the Champions League group stages next term and they are keen, as are Brighton and Brentford. A fee between £9million and £10million will convince Coventry to sell Hamer.
