A lot of United fans have flocked to a post from Graham Smyth in which he claims the Whites are “increasingly confident and hopeful” of signing ’s Junior Firpo.

Leeds' all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

There have been reports from Spain which claim that Firpo is set to sign for Leeds and they have convinced the player that a move to Elland Road is the next step in his career.

This post drew the attention of these Whites fans who are excited.

Basically confirmed”

@YourkshirePirlo

If we sign him in super super pleased with that”

@LUFC_Llorente

Very happy with this, price is good, he has a lot of potential, and fans seem to rate him, although they’re pragmatic about the deal”

@pauljchambers

Do you think this will be a good signing?

Yes, he will be

Yes, he will be brilliant

No, we don't need him

No, we don't need him

The 24-year-old is a left-back who has made 41 appearances for Barca and, before that, 43 appearances for Real Betis.

Leeds definitely need a new left-back as their first-choice left-back from the 2020/21 season Ezgjan Alioski has very little time remaining on his current deal.

So, this move makes sense, and it has clearly excited these Leeds fans.

Hold me graham..”

Naughty tweet that graham”

“This is good news”

@ronaallleeds

This is an incredible signing if we pull it off, especially for the price being mentioned. Bloke literally pocketed Mbappe in March. Was unreal for Betis, just unlucky at Barca that one of the best LB’s in world football is ahead of him. Still has huge potential”

@JakeLUFC_

It will be interesting to see what happens with Firpo now, but a move to Elland Road appears to be edging closer to completion.
