Leeds United: Jesse Marsch wants a Premier League proven striker

Leeds United: Jesse Marsch wants a Premier League proven striker -Leeds United News

Leeds United are making moves to sign a ‘Premier League centre-forward’, The Athletic’s Phil Hay reports

The lowdown

Leeds can now put their summer plans into action after confirming their Premier League status with a final-day victory over Brentford.

Jesse Marsch will be overseeing his first transfer window at Elland Road, having taken over from Marcelo Bielsa at the start of March.

They’ve already agreed a fee for RB Salzburg’s Brendan Aaronson, who’s consequently poised to be their first summer signing.

The latest

In addition to Aaronson, Marsch wants to strengthen his defence and his frontline, reports Hay.

The club have been ‘working on‘ a move for Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay as well as a top-flight striker.

How much do you know about Leeds' season so far...what was the half-time score away to Manchester United?

The verdict

Why do Leeds want to bolster their no. 9 options?

Well, Patrick Bamford may have enjoyed a fine 2020/21 campaign, scoring 17 goals and providing eight assists, but he was ravaged by injury this time around.

The Englishman spent three lengthy spells on the sidelines and was only able to start seven Premier League games.

Leeds looked to Dan James to fill the void, but he’s predominantly a winger and he was only able to score four goals.

Joe Gelhardt is an option too, but perhaps the Whites are reluctant to potentially rely on the 20-year-old at this early stage of his career.

In other news, Phil Hay reacts to what he saw Raphinha do on Sunday.
