Leeds United: Journalist makes exciting claim on attacking transfer

|

Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that Leeds United might opt to go for a bigger name than Arnaud Kalimuendo this summer.

There have been recent reports that suggest Premier League outfit Leeds United are heavily interested in Arnaud Kalimuendo this summer, especially after one of their other attacking targets Charles De Ketelaere looks like he is going to favour a move to AC Milan over a move to the Whites.

Kalimuendo spent last season on loan with RC Lens from Paris Saint-German, and he impressed after he scored 13 goals in 35 games in all competitions, which is what has caught the eye of Jesse Marsch this summer.

With Raphinha recently signing for Barcelona, Leeds will be on the hunt for a new attacker, and whilst speaking with GiveMeSport, Jones claimed that they aren’t going to rush into things and might end up with a bigger name than Kalimuendo.

“I think that there are loads of different names on the radar. I think they might even surprise us and get a bigger name that suddenly doesn’t fit in at another club. I’d say that they’re not going to rush into it,” Jones said.

Will Leeds sign a new striker?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

TIF Thoughts on Jones’s comments…

Raphinha was at the heart of the attacking threat last season for Leeds, he was the club’s top scorer in the Premier League with 11 goals, and this was not helped by the absence of Patrick Bamford, who was only able to feature seven times in the league due to injury woes. So, Marsch will be keen to bring in another goal scorer before the end of the transfer window.

Jones claims that they might surprise everyone and pull a big name out of the bag, but it is convincing these big names to join a club that were on the brink of relegation last term which could prove difficult, so Marsch will have to show these players the business that they have done already, and try and lure these players in with the intent that the club is showing.
