The Lowdown: Kalimuendo linked with Leeds
Reports last week claimed that Leeds made an offer in the region of £16.7m for the 20-year-old, and it seems as if Marsch is keen for a move to go through before the trip to Southampton next Saturday.
The Latest: Kalimuendo transfer update
The Sun shared a story on Friday afternoon regarding Kalimuendo, who ranks in the 99th percentile for forwards across Europe’s top five leagues when it comes to passing success rate (82.6%), showing excellent composure in the final third for such a young player.
They reported that Marsch hopes a deal for the Frenchman can be finalised next week to provide competition to Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt up top.
The Verdict: Busy week in store
Leeds look set to finalise a move for free agent Joel Robles over the coming days, so it could be a very busy week at Elland Road.
Where will Leeds finish this season?
Things got off to the perfect start on the pitch on Saturday with a 2-1 win over Wolves, and bringing in Robles and Kalimuendo would only add to the feel-good factor around the club.
Should both moves go through, Victor Orta may then be on the search for a new left-back to finalise the club’s business in what many would feel has been a successful summer in the market.
