Leeds: Whites rumoured to be tracking Junior Adamu

Leeds: Whites rumoured to be tracking Junior Adamu -Leeds United News

Leeds United are thought to be keeping tabs on Red Bull Salzburg forward Junior Adamu.

The Lowdown: Aaronson and Kristensen deals

The Whites have been hard at work this summer, bringing in six new players ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge at Elland Road.

Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen were the first two through the door at Elland Road, with both players joining from Salzburg at a combined cost of £41.26m.

Salzburg midfielder Mohamed Camara was also heavily linked with a move to Yorkshire, and it looks as if another player from the Austrian giants is of interest to Victor Orta and co.

The Latest: Adamu rumours

The Daily Express shared a story on Tuesday morning, looking at four alternative Leeds targets to Charles De Ketelaere.

The last of the four mentioned was Adamu, with the report claiming that the Whites are rumoured to be among those keeping tabs on the 21-year-old, who has been hailed as ‘ice cold’ and ‘special’ by UEFA-licensed coach Cherno Samba.

The Verdict: Cheaper option?

Adamu is valued at just £5.4m by Transfermarkt, so he could be a cheaper alternative to someone like Paris Saint-Germain’s Arnaud Kalimuendo, for whom a fee of €25m (£21.3m) has been mooted.

The Austrian has already scored 44 senior goals in the early stages of his career, 10 of which have come for Salzburg.

Happy with Orta's business so far?

Yes, 100%

Marsch was in charge when the forward signed for Salzburg in 2020, so you’d expect that the Leeds manager know all about Adamu, making this transfer rumour transfer potentially one to watch.
