Leeds: Victor Orta now working on new centre-forward

Leeds: Victor Orta now working on new centre-forward -Leeds United News

Leeds United director of football Victor Orta is now working to buy a centre-forward, according to The Mirror’s David Anderson.

The Lowdown: Roca deal close

Orta has already finalised moves for Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen from RB Salzburg and is about to secure a deal for Bayern Munich’s Marc Roca.

Fabrizio Romano revealed on Tuesday evening that an agreement of €12m plus add-ons has been reached with the German giants, adding that Roca is set to sign a four-year deal and undergo a medical this week.

The Whites aren’t planning to stop there, though, with Orta already aiming to bolster another area of the pitch for Jesse Marsch.

The Latest: New centre-forward next

MOT Leeds News relayed an update from Anderson in Wednesday’s print edition of The Daily Mirror.

He shared details of Roca’s pending move to Elland Road and finished by saying that Orta ‘is now working on buying a striker’.

The Verdict: Most important deal so far?

It looks as if Leeds are on the hunt for a forward on a permanent deal as opposed to a loan move following Anderson’s wording, and this transfer could be the most important one of the summer so far.

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

Patrick Bamford managed just seven starts last season due to a number of injury problems, which left Marsch using winger Dan James and youngster Joe Gelhardt as centre-forward options.

The Whites struggled in front of goal without their star striker, with just five sides scoring less than Leeds’ tally of 42, meaning Orta really needs to get this attacking signing spot on.
