Leeds: Dean Jones makes Sasa Lukic claim

Leeds: Dean Jones makes Sasa Lukic claim -Leeds United News

Journalist Dean Jones has been reacting to the rumours regarding Leeds United and Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic.

The Lowdown: Lukic linked with Leeds

Lukic has been heavily linked with a move to Yorkshire in recent weeks, with the Whites thought to be keeping tabs on the 26-year-old at the World Cup in Qatar.

Leeds are reportedly at the front row alongside AS Roma for Lukic’s services and seemingly need £12.8m to complete a transfer.

The Serbia international, who has been hailed as “outstanding” by journalist Josh Bunting, has started both Group G games so far against Brazil and Cameroon at the finals in Qatar.

The Latest: Jones’ comments

Jones was speaking to GiveMeSport regarding Leeds and Lukic and said that a move to Elland Road wouldn’t come as a surprise, adding that the Serbian is on the radar in Yorkshire.

The journalist stated: “There are little changes going on at Leeds at the moment and it wouldn’t surprise me if they are suddenly pulled towards someone particularly like Lukic for their midfield.

“I think that is probably one that would be on their radar right now.”

The Verdict: Needed?

Lukic can play as a holding, central or attacking midfielder, so he could prove to be a shrewd prospective signing by Andrea Radrizzani, Victor Orta and Jesse Marsch.

Marc Roca and Tyler Adams have both been relied upon heavily so far this season, while there seems to be question marks over the futures of Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich.

True or False? Jesse Marsch played for the USA at the World Cup!

Should both of those players move on in 2023, Leeds may need another experienced central midfielder, possibly someone like Lukic.
