Leeds: Whites linked with Erik Botheim

Leeds: Whites linked with Erik Botheim -Leeds United News

Leeds United are now chasing a move for free agent Erik Botheim, according to TEAMtalk.

The Lowdown: Botheim profiled

Botheim is 22 years of age and is primarily a centre-forward but can also play on the wing. He has scored 31 goals and provided 15 assists at club level during his career so far and made the move to Russian side Krasnodar back in January.

However, the Norwegian never made an appearance for Krasnodar and terminated his deal with the club due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

The Latest: Leeds links

TEAMtalk shared a transfer update regarding Botheim on Thursday afternoon.

They claimed that Leeds are one of the sides chasing the forward’s services on a free transfer alongside the likes of Burnley, Fulham, Middlesbrough, Rangers, Southampton, Stoke and Watford.

The Verdict: Haaland to help?

Botheim is actually best friends with Erling Haaland, who we all know is a Leeds supporter. Therefore, the new Manchester City striker could help the Whites in their pursuit of Botheim by providing a positive outlook on an Elland Road move.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Victor Orta could do with bolstering Jesse Marsch’s attacking ranks, so Botheim may well be the perfect player to join Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt as options due to his age, experience, versatility and availability.
