The Lowdown: Kalimuendo off
Victor Orta has made six first-team signings this summer, while Darko Gyabi and Sonny Perkins have joined the club’s academy ranks. It looks as if Leeds aren’t done yet, though, with a new forward and left-back appearing to be areas that need bolstering.
However, that ship may have sailed with an update on Wednesday afternoon claiming the player will join Rennes instead.
Meanwhile, Dieng, labelled a ‘serious talent’ by journalist Graeme Bailey, appears to be another forward of interest from a Champions League club.
The Latest: Leeds impressed
The Whites were recently linked with a move for Dieng, with reports last week suggesting they were keen on his services alongside a number of Premier League sides.
The Daily Mail have now claimed in a story on Tuesday that Leeds have indeed scouted the forward and see genuine potential in the player.
The Verdict: Orta to make offer?
Dieng is valued at a career-high £9m by Transfermarkt and Marseille are reportedly looking to sell the Senegal international. Therefore, with Leeds seemingly liking what they see in the forward, the next step would be for Orta to make an offer.
Happy with Orta's business so far?
I'm not so sure!
It may not be straightforward with a number of other Premier League sides name-checked in the recent update, however, at least one new forward would be beneficial for Jesse Marsch before the deadline, so they may try to work on multiple attacking targets.
