The Lowdown: Castellanos links
The Whites were credited with an interest in Castellanos back in February when they reportedly made contact with the forward’s representatives and were willing to pay £10.3m for the 23-year-old, who has been hailed as ‘top-class’ by Ronny Deila.
The Argentine is under contract until 2025, but it appears as if a move to Elland Road is still a possibility.
The Latest: Leeds update
When it came to who else the Whites could sign this summer, Castellanos was mentioned, with Jones describing it as ‘one to keep an eye on’.
How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson and Kristensen?
The Verdict: Needed?
Leeds lacked quality in front of goal last season, with star striker Patrick Bamford limited to just seven Premier League starts due to a number of injuries.
Therefore, bringing in a player like Castellanos, who has scored goals for fun in the USA, appears to be a shrewd move and would help Jesse Marsch implement his preferred 4-2-2-2 system in his first full season in charge, possibly striking up a partnership with Bamford.
