The Lowdown: Interest registered
The Whites have been extremely busy this summer, with six new signings made at a cost of £95m. Andrea Radrizzani and the 49ers Enterprises aren’t planning to stop there, though, with a striker also wanted at Elland Road.
The Latest: Transfer update
The Dailly Mail provided a Leeds transfer update in the early hours of Thursday morning, looking mainly at the club’s interest in PSG striker Arnaud Kalimuendo.
The report included a mention that the Whites are ‘also weighing up a move’ for Tymon due to Firpo’s injury.
The Verdict: Needed now?
With Firpo out for eight weeks, Jesse Marsch risks heading into the new season with limited options at left-back.
Therefore, a move for 23-year-old Tymon, who was a regular for Stoke last season, could be a shrewd piece of business in the short-term and over the long run.
Described as the ‘nutmeg king’ following 14 such instances in 2021/22, Tymon can also play further forward if required, which could be handy if Marsch wants to tinker with formations in his first full season in charge at Elland Road.
It would add strength in depth to the Whites’ full-back ranks, and with Stuart Dallas also out for the foreseeable future, now could be the time to act when it comes to Tymon.
