Leeds United have reportedly reignited their interest in Dinamo Zagreb attacking midfielder Luka Ivanusec.
The Lowdown: Ivanusec profiled
Ivanusec, a Croatia international, is 23 years of age and has been with Dinamo since 2019.
Brenden Aaronson became Leeds’ first summer signing after he penned a five-year deal at Elland Road on Thursday, and it looks as if Ivanusec could follow suit over the coming months.
The Latest: Whites interest
They claim that Leeds were willing to pay up to £12.7m in January and are now ready to go back in for the attacking midfielder after securing their Premier League status.
The report adds that Ivanusec would leave Dinamo for a multi-million figure.
How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson and Kristensen?
The Verdict: Like London buses…
Aaronson was Leeds’ first permanent midfield signing since Adam Forshaw back in January 2018. It now looks as if Ivanusec could follow Aaronson to Yorkshire, and it would make sense for more central midfielders to come in ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge.
Marsch had just four central midfielders available and a number of injury issues to deal with after he replaced Marcelo Bielsa at the end of February. He mainly used a 4-2-3-1 system as a result and went with more width in the final few games of the campaign, however, he could now look to implement a more narrow formation with a number of central signings.
