The Lowdown: Final day survival
Jesse Marsch, who has previously worked with the 21-year-old in Austria, guided the Whites to survival on the final day after a dramatic 2-1 win at Brentford. Goals from Raphinha and Jack Harrison were enough in west London as Burnley fell to a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle.
Andrea Radrizzani has now promised to improve the squad ahead of Marsch’s first full campaign at Elland Road, and a move for long-term target Aaronson appears to be edging closer.
The Latest: Romano’s update
Romano took to Twitter in the early hours of Monday morning, revealing that the Whites are closing in on a deal worth £28m for the 21-year-old.
The transfer expert said that a full agreement has been reached with personal terms already agreed, and final paperworks are now to be prepared over a move to Elland Road.
How many signings do Leeds need to make this summer?
The Verdict: Exciting
Leeds’ last permanent midfield addition was Adam Forshaw back in 2018, so a new marquee midfielder is long overdue.
Victor Orta has also been in talks with Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay in recent weeks, so it looks as if the club are looking to get their business done as early as possible.
Aaronson, who has been labelled a player with a ‘monster mentality’, contributed to 12 goals in 25 games under Marsch at Salzburg, so hopefully he can have the same sort of immediate impact in Yorkshire as Leeds look to improve on what was a disappointing 2021/22 campaign.
