Leeds United: Fresh approach made for Arnaud Kalimuendo

Leeds United: Fresh approach made for Arnaud Kalimuendo -Leeds United News

Leeds United have now made an approach for Paris Saint-Germain forward Arnaud Kalimuendo, according to CBS journalist Ben Jacobs.

The Lowdown: Striker wanted

The Whites are on the hunt for a new forward to complete their summer business ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge.

Six new players are already through the door at a cost of £95m, with winger Luis Sinisterra becoming the latest to pen terms in Yorkshire.

Club Brugge forward Charles De Ketelaere has been heavily linked in recent weeks, but it looks as if he will move to AC Milan, and Leeds have now seemingly made their move for an alternative attacking target.

The Latest: Approach made

Jacobs took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to provide an update on Kalimuendo.

He revealed that Leeds, Newcastle, Ajax and Atalanta have all made enquiries to PSG about the striker. Jacobs then labelled Kalimuendo as ‘technically gifted’ and said that a deal around £20m ‘would be a bargain’.

This appears to be the second time Leeds have moved for the forward after The Independent reported a £17m attempt last month.

The Verdict: Get it done

Kalimuendo certainly seems to have been on Leeds’ radar for some time now following the alleged offer last month, and he could be an ideal alternative to De Ketelaere.

Happy with Orta's business so far?

Yes, 100%

I'm not so sure!

The 20-year-old scored 12 Ligue 1 goals in 34 appearances on loan with Lens last season, mainly turning out as a centre-forward, but also used from the left and in a deeper role.

His Transfermarkt valuation has been on the rise over the last 12 months as a result of his impressive displays, and you’d like to think he’ll only get better over the coming years.

Hopefully, that will be at Elland Road with Leeds, but it looks as if Victor Orta has plenty of competition in a race to secure Kalimuendo’s services.
