Leeds: Jesse Marsch wants Arnaud Kalimuendo signed next week

Leeds: Jesse Marsch wants Arnaud Kalimuendo signed next week -Leeds United News

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch wants Paris Saint-Germain forward Arnaud Kalimuendo signed next week, according to The Sun.

The Lowdown: Kalimuendo linked with Leeds

The Whites were first linked with a move for the youngster in June, although Charles De Ketelaere was the club’s primary target at the time.

As we now know, De Ketelaere decided to join AC Milan instead of Leeds, and it looks as if Kalimuendo is now the Premier League club’s top attacking target.

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.

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.
