Leeds want to push permanent deal through for Muhamed Besic

Leeds United are looking to make some last minute additions to their squad this summer as they look to reinforce their side.

And, it appears that Marcelo Bielsa is continuing to look at the Premier League as an option for new recruits, with one man thought to be deemed surplus to requirements.

According to The Daily Mirror’s live transfer blog, Leeds want to sign Everton’s Muhamed Besic in a deal worth around £4.5million.

It is understood that the Whites want the midfielder on a permanent deal and are looking at beating this evening’s 5pm deadline, however, a loan switch could be completed initially with a view to it being made a full-time switch.

The Bosnia international is no longer thought to be required at Goodison Park this summer, following a loan spell with Middlesbrough during the second half of last season and the arrival of Richarlison.

The Verdict:

Besic would be a brilliant signing for Leeds to make this summer and they will be hoping to at least get a deal in place.

Even if the player were to join on an initial loan deal, it would be an immediate boost for the club as he would be able to strengthen the central midfield options.

The Elland Road outfit need players in that particular area of the pitch after they lost Adam Forshaw to an injury and saw Ronaldo Vieira complete a transfer to Sampdoria.
