Leeds: Ardon Jashari aware of Elland Road transfer rumours

Leeds: Ardon Jashari aware of Elland Road transfer rumours -Leeds United News

Leeds United target and FC Luzern midfielder Ardon Jashari has admitted that he has heard recent speculation over a possible January transfer to Elland Road.

The Lowdown: Leeds keen on Jashari

Jesse Marsch has already added to his squad this month with the acquisition of Max Wober from RB Salzburg.

There could be more to come at Elland Road, though, with Sky Sports Germany saying last weekend that Victor Orta and Leeds are vying to sign Jashari alongside the likes of RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt, Celtic and Napoli.

The left-footed midfielder recently featured at the World Cup for Switzerland and could be available for around €6m-€7m (£5.3m-£6.2m).

The Latest: Jashari’s comments

Swiss outlet Luzerner Zeitung shared comments from Jashari in the last 48 hours. He said that he’s ‘heard about the rumours’ but added that he is currently happy with his current employers and is focused on returning to action.

The 20-year-old said: “I heard about the rumours. There’s no getting around that. But I’m happy now that I can get back on the pitch to train with the team.

“I have now completed two days of training with FCL. For me, the focus is clearly on Luzern, so that I can prepare well and without injury. The timing would have to be right for me to decide to switch now.”

The Verdict: Possible Klich replacement?

It seems as if Jashari could well be targeted by Leeds officials as a potential replacement for Mateusz Klich. The club confirmed on Wednesday following the 2-2 draw against West Ham that the 32-year-old is leaving Elland Road, with an offer on the table from the MLS.

Jashari can play in two midfield roles and has been described as an ‘exciting’ talent by members of the media, so he could possibly arrive to fill the gap left by Klich.
