The Lowdown: Kristensen links
The Whites have already made moves ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge by landing long-term target Brenden Aaronson.
It now looks as if another FC Salzburg player is on the radar in right-back Kristensen, with Phil Hay breaking the rumour on Tuesday morning.
The Yorkshire Evening Post added that the Whites are ‘confident’ heading into talks for the Denmark international, and it looks as if a move is gathering pace.
The Latest: Romano drops development
Romano took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to provide his own development on Kristensen and Leeds.
The transfer expert revealed that ‘negotiations are concrete’ and an ‘opening bid’ is ‘ready’. He even adds that personal terms won’t be an issue ahead of an Elland Road switch.
The Verdict: Looking good
Kristensen is expected to leave Salzburg, with a fee in the region of £10m being mooted, and it looks as if the Whites could be about to secure a second piece of shrewd transfer business.
Capable of playing as a right-midfielder if required, Kristensen is also a goal threat with 22 senior club goals to his name. The Denmark international has also enjoyed success under Marsch, with the pair winning back-to-back league and cup doubles in Austria.
He seems to be ready-made for the Premier League with his aggressive and athletic style, so hopefully, the club can get a deal over the line for Kristensen, who would more than likely begin the season as first choice, should he sign, with Luke Ayling and Stuart Dallas injured.
