Leeds United: Rasmus Kristensen bid tabled

Leeds United: Rasmus Kristensen bid tabled -Leeds United News

Leeds United have reportedly now tabled a bid just shy of the £10m price tag for FC Salzburg star Rasmus Kristensen.

The Lowdown: Kristensen links

The Whites were first linked with a move for Kristensen earlier this week when Phil Hay revealed that the club have been following the right-back, described as a ‘goal threat’ by Salzburg boss Matthias Jaissle as he bagged ten goals in all competitions this season.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano picked up on the rumour regarding Leeds and the Denmark international, adding that an ‘opening bid’ was ready.

It now looks as if Andrea Radrizzani and the 49ers Enterprises have tabled that offer, with Hay previously stating that a £10m fee should be enough to secure Kristensen’s services.

The Latest: £9.9m?

Danish outlet Eksra Bladet provided an update regarding Leeds and Kristensen on Wednesday.

They claimed that the Whites have now made an offer of around DKK 87 million (roughly £9.9m), adding that talks are underway.

Reliable reporter Mike McGrath has since added that personal terms have been agreed upon and that a move is edging closer.

The Verdict: Cheeky

It seems as if Leeds officials have tabled a cheeky offer just shy of the mooted £10m figure, but you’d like to think that an agreement will be reached, especially as Kristensen is expected to leave Austria this summer and the figures are so close together.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

A possible obstacle though could be if Borussia Dortmund or Brentford firm up their reported interest in the 24-year-old with an offer of their own, something that could drag Leeds into a bidding war which then far exceeds the initial offer.

Hopefully, Kristensen will be keen to work under Jesse Marsch once again after the Leeds boss signed the right-back for Salzburg 2019, which could swing a transfer in the Whites’ favour.
