Leeds: Bielsa wants Vedat Muriqi signed ‘immediately’ -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United are aiming to sign Lazio striker Vedat Muriqi in the January transfer window, according to a new transfer rumour which emerged on Thursday.

The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Muriqi move

The Whites are yet to make any new signings this month, with Marcelo Bielsa surely hoping to bring in some much-needed squad reinforcements before the deadline – the manager may be without as many as ten players due to injury for the trip to West Ham this weekend.

Leeds were linked with a move Muriqi earlier in the week, who has struggled for playing time at Lazio this season, starting only one Serie A match to date.

The 27-year-old has been compared to Bayern Munich legend Robert Lewandowski, which is sure to whet the appetite of some Whites supporters.

The Latest: Getting closer

Another update has now appeared, with La Lazio Siamo Noi [via Sport Witness] claiming that Leeds will ‘push to bring’ to Elland Road ‘immediately’.

It is also mentioned that there has been ‘significant progress’ in negotiations, with an initial loan move plus an €8m (£6.7m) obligation now looking increasingly likely.

The Verdict: Worth a punt?

Muriqi may have had his struggles this season in terms of playing time but he is a gifted striker who could add precious squad depth to Bielsa’s squad.

The 6 foot 4 target man has scored 18 goals in just 37 caps for Kosovo, highlighting his ruthlessness in the final third, and he also bagged 17 in 36 during a spell at Fenerbahce.

At the moment, there is too much pressure on Patrick Bamford to provide end product but signing Muriqi should help alleviate that issue, even if the Kosovo colossus is not starting matches week in week out.
