Leeds United will reportedly make a move for German-born defender Stephan Ambrosius in January, according to a report from Ghana Soccer Net.
Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa followed up his team’s automatic promotion to the Premier League and by bringing in some new faces during the transfer window.
The Argentine tactician has thus far spent just under the £100m mark with the domestic window set to close next Friday, and whilst that spending could increase with interest in Todd Cantwell developing, one player linked with Elland Road looks likely to see a deal discussed in the new year.
German youth international Ambrosius is currently playing for 2.Bundesliga side Hamburg, and with his contract set to expire next summer, interest from the Whites has developed.
Victor Orta keen to make a January move
Reports claim that Leeds’ transfer guru Orta is extremely fond of the player and is now ready to offer him a contract in January when he is allowed to discuss terms with other clubs.
Ghana Soccer Net reported that the defender could then pen a pre-agreement ahead of a summer move to England.
Hamburg are keen to keep hold of the defender and have reportedly put together a plan to offer him a contract until 2024.
Is Ambrosius a good option for Leeds?
Born in Hamburg, Ambrosius initially started his career with St Pauli before moving to Hamburg in 2012 and developing with the club’s academy teams.
At 1.83m, Ambrosius will certainly be a towering presence if he were to join Leeds next summer and he could be a perfect option for Bielsa in that sense.
One potential question mark is the youngster’s lack of top-flight football and that could mean he would need some time to adjust to the Premier League.
