Leeds: Whites linked with Luka Ivanusec -Leeds United News

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.

Primarily an attacking midfielder, Ivanusec can also play on the wing and has contributed to 32 goals in 119 games for his current employers.

He scored five times and provided eight assists in 42 games last season, penning a contract extension through to 2026 last August.

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

According to Croatian news outlet Germanijak, relayed by MOT Leeds News, the Whites have reignited their interest in Ivanusec.

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.

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.
