Leeds United: Phil Hay reveals ‘final target’ position

Leeds United: Phil Hay reveals ‘final target’ position -Leeds United News

The Athletic journalist Phil Hay has revealed what the ‘final target’ position for Leeds United is, and what ‘major’ business they still need to ‘negotiate’.

The Lowdown: Sinisterra signs

The Elland Road outfit confirmed the signing of winger Luis Sinisterra from Feyenoord at lunchtime, and he becomes their sixth new arrival in this window joining Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Adams, Darko Gyabi, Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca.

FC Barcelona and Chelsea are currently tussling over the signing of Raphinha, which would give Jesse Marsch’s side further funds to potentially spend and bring in more recruits.

The Latest: New forward targeted

Writing in his latest piece for The Athletic, Hay has revealed that the Yorkshire club will ‘invest’ in a new forward, which is the ‘final target’ on their list.

This can be done with the sale of Raphinha, which Hay says is the only ‘major’ piece of business that they still need to ‘negotiate’.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Needed

The arrival of Sinisterra should accommodate for the likely departure of Raphinha, so the Whites can use the money received to invest in a much-needed striker for the team.

Patrick Bamford is the only senior one in the current squad, and his season was hampered by injury problems last year, making just seven Premier League starts.

Both Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood are still learning their trade at 20 years of age, and so the Peacocks could really do with another senior frontman in case Bamford faces another lengthy spell on the sidelines.
