Sevilla are ready to ‘listen to offers’ for goalkeeper Bono and Leeds United are in the mix to complete the signing, according to a new transfer update.
The Lowdown: Bono linked with move
Jesse Marsch appears to be open to the idea of adding depth and quality to his squad, as the Whites look to stave off the threat of relegation from the Premier League.
One player who has been linked with a move to Leeds is Bono – real name Yassine Bounou – who has made 11 starts in La Liga for Sevilla this season. Now, a fresh update has emerged regarding the Canadian-born shot-stopper’s future.
The Latest: Exit door likely?
Leeds and West Ham are both mentioned as potential suitors and he is ‘on the radar’ of both teams.
The Verdict: Good for squad depth
Bono, who looks set to feature at the World Cup for Morocco later this month, could be an ideal signing for Leeds, in terms of ensuring competition for places is strong and Illan Meslier doesn’t rest on his laurels.
The Whites goalkeeper has gone from strength to strength at Elland Road but could benefit from having a more experienced teammate alongside him to push him to new heights.
Bono has made 118 appearances for Sevilla, which speaks volumes about his quality, and the Moroccan could be a shrewd acquisition for the Whites.
