Inter Milan join Leeds United in race to sign PSG striker Arnaud Kalimuendo

Inter Milan have reportedly joined Leeds United in the race to sign Paris St. Germain striker Arnaud Kalimuendo.

According to Media Foot, the Whites will now have to fend off interest from the Serie A side along with Newcastle, Lyon and Rennes who are all keen on signing the French striker.

PSG director Luis Campos may demand up to £21million in order to part ways with the 20-year-old this summer.

Sign him up

Leeds do have an offer in for Kalimuendo but it has not been accepted or rejected yet with it seemingly being in the hands of the player.

He is unconvinced by Newcastle’s project and may look for different challenges outside France and that makes Elland Road a suitable destination.

However, the lack of European football may be something that he will need to be convinced about.

The Whites can look to make him the centre of their rebuild which is quite plausible given the fact that he’s only 20.

Kalimuendo will have ambitions of playing for France and he knows that the Premier League has more eyeballs than any other league.

A 15-goal campaign in the English top flight catapults him into contention for Les Bleus while doing the same in Italy or France may not be considered a big deal.

Let’s hope that Victor Orta and co manage to convince him over a move to Elland Road this summer.

In other Leeds United news, a 29-year-old has snubbed interest from Europe to move to Elland Road with the move subject to a work permit.
