Leeds: Florian Grillitsch still a target

Leeds: Florian Grillitsch still a target -Leeds United News

Leeds United are still keen on signing Hoffenheim star Florian Grillitsch, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Grillitsch links

Grillitsch, hailed as ‘extraordinary‘ by Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann, was linked with a move to Elland Road last month.

The Austria international is out of contract at the end of June and his agent has already held talks with a number of clubs in England, one of which is believed to have been Leeds and Victor Orta.

The Whites managed to avoid relegation on the final day and have already made the most of that by signing long-term target Brenden Aaronson, and it looks as if Grillitsch could be next.

The Latest: Leeds interest

Jones provided GiveMeSport with a Leeds transfer guide on Thursday evening, shortly after Aaronson penned a five-year deal in Yorkshire.

He told the site that Grillitsch is still a target and may join even if Kalvin Phillips remains at the club, acting as a partner for the England star rather than a replacement.

The Verdict: Perfect

Grillitsch is valued at £14.4m by Transfermarkt and is primarily a defensive midfielder who can also play as a box-to-box midfielder.

Jesse Marsch has a small senior squad, so if he wants to implement his 4-2-2-2 system next season, Grillitsch could be the perfect partner alongside Phillips at the base of the midfield.

The 26-year-old also has plenty of experience in the Bundesliga and would be able to provide another option at centre-back if required, making a potential free transfer a no brainer for Leeds chiefs.
