Leeds: Pete O’Rourke makes Brenden Aaronson claim

Leeds: Pete O’Rourke makes Brenden Aaronson claim -Leeds United

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed Leeds United want to sign two midfielders this summer, with Brenden Aaronson a ‘top target’, GiveMeSport report.

The Lowdown: January bids

The Whites failed to add to their senior ranks in the January window, with teenage striker Mateo Joseph Fernandez the only player through the door at Thorp Arch.

Are you worried about Leeds this season?

Yes, think we might go down!

No, we'll be fine!

Leeds did try and bring Aaronson to Yorkshire, though, and made two bids to RB Leipzig for the American’s signature. As we know, they were unsuccessful, but the club are confident their pitch for the 21-year-old will work in the summer.

The Latest: O’Rourke’s comments

O’Rourke was talking to GiveMeSport regarding transfers in a story shared on Tuesday evening. He said two are wanted at the end of the campaign, with Aaronson their key target.

“I don’t think that stance has changed from the Leeds recruitment team. They still want to bring in two midfielders, and Aaronson remains a top target in the summer.”

The Verdict: Survival required first

It’s good to see that the club want two midfielders in the summer, however, failing to make any senior signings in the winter window has been a huge gamble.

Marcelo Bielsa has had to deal with multiple injury issues this season in what is already a small squad, with Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford missing large parts of the season. As a result, Leeds are now flirting with the bottom three as we enter the crunch period of the campaign.

Hopefully, the Whites will remain in the top flight and bolster their midfield ranks over the summer but they’ll first need to guarantee their place in the division to do just that.
