Paris Saint-Germain striker Arnaud Kalimuendo is now ready to make the move to Leeds United this summer, according to 90min.
The online outlet has reported on its website that the Whites are pushing for a deal with an agreement now close over a €25million fee [£21.1million].
Jesse Marsch is now said to have Kalimuendo at the top of his wishlist with PSG president Luis Campos now ready to part ways with the 20-year-old.
Christophe Galtier is the problem, with the Paris Saint-Germain head coach wanting to keep hold of the young French wonder for his squad.
Campos doesn’t appear to be bothered about that though and is said to be close to agreeing on terms with Leeds over the major transfer this month.
Victor Orta has been pushing for a new striker for months now, with the pursuit of Charles De Ketelaere finally coming to an end over the past week.

Get it Done.
This move ticks all of the boxes.
Kalimuendo is still a wonderkid in all senses of the word, but he has top-five European league with RC Lens over the past two seasons on loan.
The young French talisman found the back of the net with ease during his time there and would provide great depth and competition to help the development of Joe Gelhardt alongside him.
Getting this deal over the line would allow Marsch to switch to two strikers in games if needed, and have an extra option on the bench with Patrick Bamford still the main man.
Spending only £20million will also keep some of the budget around to complete a deal for a new left-back too, something which could complete the squad for the entire season.
Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha may have left, but if those two deals can get done, we would leave the window with much more depth and strength available to us.
Get it done.
