Leeds United‘s rumoured move for RB Salzburg defender Max Wober looks increasingly likely, with his club now already looking at replacements.
The Lowdown: Wober heading to Leeds
Recent reports have suggested that the 24-year-old is closing in on a transfer to Elland Road, as Jesse Marsch makes significant inroads in the market.
Wober has stood out as an impressive performer for Salzburg so far this season, making three appearances in the Champions League and averaging three tackles per game in that competition, with Phil Hay reporting on Monday morning that a deal is indeed gathering pace.
A new update on the saga is another positive one from a Leeds perspective, suggesting that the move is edging closer all the time.
The Latest: Salzburg looking for replacements
They see this as arguably the biggest indication yet that he will be a Whites player sooner rather than later.
The Verdict: Strong signing by Whites
This feels like a matter of time until it happens and Wober could prove to be an inspired signing by Leeds, with so many positives standing out regarding the move.
Left-back is an area of weakness currently, with Junior Firpo rarely convincing in a Whites shirt, and two goals and six assists this season highlight Wober’s attacking quality.
Wober is also more than capable of thriving as a centre-back, however, meaning he can cover two positions and add even more depth to Marsch’s squad.
The fact that the Leeds boss has already worked with the 13-time capped Austria international at Salzburg is a added bonus, too, suggesting they know each other inside out.
