Jesse Marsch and Victor Orta would like three more Leeds United signings with Rasmus Kristensen deal close

Leeds United are set to push for three major new signings after the deal for Rasmus Kristensen is completed, according to The Mirror on Thursday [02 June].

David Anderson has reported that Jesse Marsch and Victor Orta would like another midfielder, striker and potentially a more experienced goalkeeper to challenge Illan Meslier.

Fabrizio Romano reported earlier on Thursday that an opening bid of £8.5million was set to be accepted by RB Salzburg for Kristensen, who is set to follow Brenden Aaronson to Elland Road.

Writing in his latest column for The Mirror, Anderson shared what is to come from Orta and Marsch moving forward into June and July.

“Boss Jesse Marsch and director of football Victor Orta would like to sign another striker, right-back and central midfielder,” he wrote.

“Orta also has his eye out for a more-experienced goalkeeper to provide cover for Illan Meslier.”

Here We Go.

Leeds are going to be very busy at the start of this window it seems.

Orta and Marsch have been meeting consistently and it looks as though they have set out their stalls and know what they both want for this squad.

Communication between those two will be vital, and it wasn’t something that Marcelo Bielsa was very good at, as well as being very specific which left him with little depth in his squad.

A new midfielder and attacker is vital, and it would be interesting to see if an experienced goalkeeper will come in, it would certainly help that very young group at Thorp Arch.

Getting all of these done early could also help us keep hold of the likes of Kalvin Phillips, who will see the big money being spent and see that as a clear ambition to kick on.

Kristensen looks set to become signing number two already, and once that is done, we can keep an eye out for the other three that are clearly wanted by those at the club.
