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’.
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.
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.
