Leeds United: Whites eyeing up second signing after Aaronson

Leeds United: Whites eyeing up second signing after Aaronson -Leeds United News

Leeds United have made contact for another signing after Brenden Aaronson this summer, as Victor Orta is not waiting around.

The Lowdown: Aaronson move edges closer

The Whites enjoyed an incredible final day of the season, retaining their Premier League status after a memorable 2-1 victory away to Brentford.

Attention has quickly turned to summer transfer business, however, with Jesse Marsch now looking to bring in his former colleague at RB Salzburg, Brenden Aaronson.

It has been reported that a move is now on the verge of being agreed for the American, with their Premier League survival the big key to the move being completed.

The Latest: Leeds also want Minamino

According to La Lazio Siamo Noi [via Sport Witness], Leeds also want to add versatile forward Takumi Minamino to their squad this summer, with the Japanese starlet potentially allowed to leave Liverpool.

It is claimed that he has found ‘little space’ for playing time under Jurgen Klopp this season, only managing one league start all season long, and a ‘convincing offer’ from the Whites could prise him away.

Orta and co. have made ‘initial contact’, but face competition from Serie A side Lazio.

The Verdict: No messing around

After a disappointing January window which left the squad disastrously short of depth, Minamino and Aaronson could be perfect summer signings for Leeds, so it’s good to see Orta and Marsch are not wasting any time.

Potentially arriving as more of a first-team player than he is at Liverpool – where he has mostly been used in the cups – Minamino has been hailed as ‘outstanding’ by Klopp this season.

Despite his lack of minutes, the 27-year-old has managed to chip in with ten goals in all competitions, playing a big part in the Reds clinching both Carabao Cup and FA Cup glory, having scored seven times in the domestic cups combined.

The fact that Minamino can operate as No.10, out wide or as a striker – preferably more of a false nine – means he would provide great versatility for Marsch, too, not to mention the pedigree of being part of a special Liverpool squad.
