Leeds: Whites eyeing Daichi Kamada move

Leeds: Whites eyeing Daichi Kamada move -Leeds United News

Leeds United are plotting a summer move for Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Daichi Kamada, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Kamada profiled

Kamada, a Japan international, is 25 years of age who plays as an attacking midfielder and second striker.

He made the move to Frankfurt back in 2017 and has seen his Transfermarkt valuation rocket from £675,000 to £19.8m in the Bundesliga.

Kamada has netted 56 goals and registered 46 assists during his club career so far, with 50 of those goal contributions coming in Germany.

The attacker will be entering the final 12 months of his Frankfurt contract in the summer, and it looks as if he is firmly on Leeds’ radar.

The Latest: Source shares update

FI shared a story early on Thursday morning regarding Leeds and Kamada after being informed by a recruitment source.

They claim that the Whites sent club scouts to Germany to watch Kamada in action against West Ham in their Europa League semi-final second leg.

Jesse Marsch is thought to be a big fan of the Frankfurt man, but a summer move hinges on Leeds’ Premier League status.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

The Verdict: Needed

The Whites currently don’t have a senior attacking midfielder on the books, while their forward ranks have been hit hard this season due to numerous injuries to Patrick Bamford.

Therefore, providing Leeds remain in the top flight, a move for Kamada appears to be just what Marsch needs ahead of his first full season in charge.

He can play in multiple attacking roles and appears to be approaching his prime at the age of 25. A transfer also appears to be within the club’s reach financially, especially as he’ll be into the final 12 months of his contract in the summer, but first, Leeds need points in their final four Premier League fixtures.
