Leeds: Whites open preliminary striker talks

Leeds: Whites open preliminary striker talks -Leeds United News

Leeds United have opened preliminary talks to sign a new versatile forward this month, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Wober in

The Whites have already brought in a versatile defender this month, with Max Wober penning an Elland Road contract through to 2027.

The 24-year-old arrives from Red Bull Salzburg and will provide competition at both centre-back and left-back under Jesse Marsch.

Attention now seems to be set on bolstering the club’s ranks in the final third, with Football Insider‘s Wayne Veysey sharing an update in the last 24 hours.

The Latest: Attacker update

Veysey has reported for Football Insider that Leeds are in the market for an attacker who can play out wide or through the middle, with preliminary talks underway.

He added that a number of different transfer ‘formulas’ have been discussed inside Elland Road, one of which is a loan-to-buy move.

The Verdict: Good news

This update will come as welcome news for Whites supporters, who haven’t seen first-choice striker Patrick Bamford score a competitive senior goal since 2021.

He has endured a number of injury issues, with reports suggesting that he has suffered another setback following recent surgery. That has left Rodrigo as the only natural experienced centre-forward available to Marsch, so hopefully the club can bring in another such player relatively quickly.
