Leeds: Whites may hijack Everton’s James Tarkowski move

Leeds: Whites may hijack Everton’s James Tarkowski move -Leeds United News

Leeds United may look to hijack Everton’s move for defender James Tarkowski, according to The Daily Mail’s Dominic King.

The Lowdown: Tarkowski in demand

Tarkowski, who Sean Dyche described as ‘outstanding’, appears to be a man in demand with his Burnley contract set to expire at the end of June.

The 29-year-old has held talks with Aston Villa and has also been linked with Fulham and Newcastle.

However, it looks as if Everton are winning the race for the centre-back’s services, and Leeds could now look to make a late move for the player ahead of their recent relegation rivals.

The Latest: Leeds interest

King shared a story for The Daily Mail late on Thursday evening regarding Tarkowski, claiming that Everton are confident of signing the Burnley star on a free transfer.

However, the reporter added that the Whites are one of a few clubs keeping tabs on Tarkowski’s situation as ‘they plot a potential transfer swoop’.

The Verdict: Unlikely?

Leeds are already well-stocked at centre-back with five senior options, and it looks as if their priorities currently lie elsewhere.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Reports have suggested that after the club wrap up a move for second summer signing Rasmus Kristensen, Leeds will look to sign a central midfielder, striker and an experienced goalkeeper.

Therefore, you’d expect that a move to Elland Road for Tarkowski is unlikely, however, it could be one to monitor following King’s claim.
