The Lowdown: Leeds links
The Whites have been heavily linked with a move for De Ketelaere over the last seven days after Fabrizio Romano broke the news last week.
A journalist in Belgium believes Leeds will make an opening €30m (£25.8m) proposal for De Ketelaere, with Club Brugge holding out for a figure closing to €40m.
The Latest: Jones reacts
Jones, talking to GiveMeSport, said that De Ketelaere is ‘definitely’ on Leeds’ radar and would be a ‘massive coup’ and an ‘unbelievable signing’, should a move go through.
“De Ketelaere would be an unbelievable signing and he is definitely a player of interest.
“I’m personally not sure that Leeds can lure him in because this is a player with a big future ahead of him and I know he is hugely ambitious.
“Honestly, he could probably arrive at any Premier League club and look to make an impact, so it would be a massive coup if Leeds could get him.”
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
De Ketelaere has just come off the back of a stellar campaign with 28 goal contributions.
He’ll be able to play as an attacking midfielder, out wide or as a centre-forward, something which could come in extremely handy for Jesse Marsch.
How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson, Kristensen and Roca?
It looks as if Leeds may need to pay a club-record fee for De Ketelaere, so it would certainly be an eye-catching move and show some serious intent as both Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha move closer to the exit door.
