The Lowdown: Leeds bid
The Whites haven’t wasted any time this summer when it comes to first-team signings, with midfielder Marc Roca now officially becoming the third addition.
Attention has since turned to a deal for Kalimuendo, with The Independent revealing that Leeds have made a bid in the region of €20m (£17.1m).
The Latest: Journalist’s update
Aouna took to Twitter on Thursday lunchtime following the news of the ‘official offer’ that was reported ‘in England’.
He added some more ‘info’, claiming that PSG will now demand a €22m (£18.9m) fee to part ways with Kalimuendo.
The Verdict: Good move?
European football expert Antonio Mango has hailed Kalimuendo as a ‘superstar in the making‘, and should he arrive in Yorkshire, he would provide Jesse Marsch with a much-needed centre-forward option.
Patrick Bamford missed 30 games through three separate issues last season, and there is little depth behind the England international.
The Frenchman would also be able to provide cover on the left wing or in a deeper central role, but it seems as if Leeds will need to up their initial offer slightly to get a transfer over the line.
Transfermarkt currently has a probability of a move going through at 63%, so it looks like this one does have legs, especially with reporters abroad such as Aouna now getting additional scoops on the news.
