The Lowdown: Castellanos links
The Whites are thought to be ‘most interested’ in Castellanos after Manchester City passed up on their option to sign the 23-year-old.
Victor Orta and Angus Kinnear were recently spotted alongside Leeds director Massimo Marinelli just over five miles from New York City’s Yankee Stadium.
The Latest: Another…
90min shared a story on Friday looking at Leeds’ interest in Castellanos. They added that as well as the Argentinian, Leeds have unnamed representatives looking at another American based player.
The report doesn’t reveal who that player is, although the Whites were linked with Philadelphia Union left-back Kai Wagner in the final weeks of the season.
The Verdict: Double deal?
Kristensen looks set to become the second player to swap RB Salzburg for Leeds, and it appears as if the Whites have their eye on another double raid over in the US.
Castellanos would bolster Jesse Marsch’s attacking ranks, something which is needed after Patrick Bamford’s injury struggles last season.
Another USA-based player could also be on their way to Yorkshire by the looks of it, and if it is Wagner, he’d provide competition to Junior Firpo at left-back with Stuart Dallas sidelined.
