The Lowdown: Camara teasing Elland Road move
Leeds have also held talks for RB Leipzig’s Tyler Adams and Manchester City’s Darko Gyabi, with a £5m move for the latter in the pipeline, so it is clear a defensive-minded midfield player is on the agenda.
Camara himself has recently teased a move to Elland Road by replying to Leeds fans on social media, and it looks as if a move to Yorkshire could gather pace over the coming days.
The Latest: Taylor’s update
Taylor, took to Twitter late on Tuesday evening to provide an update on Camara. He shared news of Salzburg allowing the midfielder to take more time off from their pre-season camp in order to resolve his immediate future, with Leeds in ‘direct contact’ with his representatives.
The journalist also cited a fee in the region of £17m-£25m, claiming that Brighton are ‘also in the mix’.
The Verdict: Get it done
Camara has gone from strength to strength at Salzburg which has seen his Transfermarkt valuation rocket from just £1.17m in April 2020 to a career-high £24.3m today.
How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson, Kristensen and Roca?
Conor McGilligan believes Camara is already ‘on KP’s level’, so a move for anything under £25m could be a brilliant move by Leeds chiefs as they look to fill the big void set to be left by Phillips.
