The Lowdown: Attacking reinforcements on the agenda
The Whites have already made two summer signings in Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen and appear to be closing in on third with a move for Marc Roca.
Summer business shouldn’t stop there, though, with a new centre-forward also on the agenda at Elland Road. Phil Hay previously stated that the club are looking to bring in a striker with Premier League experience, something which Ings has plenty of.
The Latest: Ings update
They provided a live TV update regarding the 29-year-old, saying there have been reports of a ‘possible move’ to Leeds, but ‘Sky Sports has been told’ that Villa have ‘no intention’ of selling the striker.
How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson and Kristensen?
The Verdict: Needed
Patrick Bamford only managed to start seven Premier League games last season due to a number of different injuries, so it’s clear to see that Jesse Marsch could do with another experienced forward.
Ings, who has scored 113 club goals during his career, could have been a smart move, and Leeds may have been keen, but it doesn’t look as if they have a chance after this latest update.
It’ll be interesting to see whether or not they still go for an attacker with Premier League experience, especially with links to New York City’s Valentin Castellanos not going away.
