Three new players linked with summer move to Leeds: £17m bid made for attacker

The summer window continues to roll on for Leeds with Marc Roca set to join this week. A medical is expected on Friday – and now, here are three more players to be linked with a move to Leeds, today (Thursday).

Leeds have completed deals for Rasmus Kristensen and Brenden Aaronson – and Roca is set to be the third. But Jesse Marsch’s desire to bring more players to the club is not done. Here are three more players linked with Leeds:

Romeo Lavia – Manchester City

Kalvin Phillips looks more than likely to depart Leeds and join Manchester City. The Athletic claim that 18-year-old Manchester City midfielder Lavia is now a target for the Whites – in a move that could ‘offset’ the Phillips deal.

Highly-regarded at City, he is a regular in the 23’s and even played twice for Pep Guardiola’s senior side last term. The Belgian is a holding midfielder, and both Leeds and Southampton are keen on the Manchester City talent.

Arnaud Kalimuendo – PSG

The 20-year-old PSG talent has spent the last two years on loan at Lens. His first season saw him score eight goals in 27 games. In 38 games during 2021-22, Kalimuendo netted 13 times – laying on six assists over those two seasons.

The Independent claim that Leeds have tabled a £17million offer for Kalimuendo. He would fit the kind of criteria Leeds want in a player and remember, the last time we spent £17million on a player from Ligue 1, it worked quite well.

Erik Botheim – Krasnodar

Botheim, 22, starred for Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt – scoring 22 goals in 46 games, also creating 10. It saw him move to Krasnodar in January. But because of the War between Russia and Ukraine – his contract is under suspension.

Costing Krasnodar just £8million, TeamTalk report that Leeds are among the clubs keen – along with Southampton, Fulham, Rangers and other clubs. He is available on a free this summer.
