Leeds United could now turn their attention to Everton defender Mason Holgate after singing Max Wober.
The Lowdown: First arrival
The Whites have been quick to act in the January transfer window, bringing in Wober from RB Salzburg. The Austrian will provide competition at centre-back and left-back in Yorkshire, with Jesse Marsch landing a third player from Salzburg after Rasmus Kristensen and Brenden Aaronson.
Further additions could be on the cards in Yorkshire, though, with the club linked with a number of players, one of which being Holgate.
The Latest: Holgate speculation
Reports last month claimed that the Whites have already made an approach over a move for Holgate, with Everton looking to raise transfer funds.
The Sun then shared a story following Leeds’ swoop for Wober on Tuesday morning, saying the club could now turn their attention to other targets, once again name-checking Holgate. They also brought up a previous in-house update on youngster Mateo Joseph, suggesting he is in line for a fresh Elland Road contract.
The Verdict: Not needed
Therefore, their priority should be on bringing in an attacker, especially with Patrick Bamford reportedly suffering an injury setback.
Rodrigo is Jesse Marsch’s only fit senior centre-forward option as a result, so someone like Southampton’s Che Adams, who has been linked, could be a better target than Holgate.
