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
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.
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.
