Leeds United agree significant transfer fee to sign Luis Sinisterra

Leeds United have agreed a transfer fee as they bid to sign Feyenoord winger Luis Sinisterra this summer, according to 90min.

The 23-year-old was a sensation for the Dutch club during the 2021-22 campaign scoring 12 times in the Eredivisie while also leading their charge in the Europa Conference League with six goals.

Jesse Marsch has liked what he’s seen from the Colombian international and the Whites have now agreed a deal that could be worth up to £25million to Feyenoord which would be a club-record sale should it go through.

Leeds United see Sinisterra as the replacement for Raphinha who is likely to leave Elland Road this summer amid widespread interest from Chelsea and Barcelona.

Victor Orta has already orchestrated four new additions to Marsch’s squad with Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca and Darko Gyabi all set to feature in the club’s pre-season tour to Australia and they want a couple more to join them before the plane takes off on 10 July.

Number five

We have always known that we would need to replace Raphinha eventually and thankfully we look to have got one step ahead of the game and lined up the new man before the Brazilian has even left.

The one thing you could accuse the 25-year-old of lacking was the end product and his numbers didn’t quite live up to his talent as a result.

That is not something you can attribute to Sinisterra though with 23 goals in all competitions last season to go along with a handy 14 assists making him one of Feyenoord’s star players.

He can come to Leeds United and be that again for us and to get him for only £25million is actually a bit of a steal in the current transfer market.

The Colombian won’t be the last addition either and we are very quietly building a squad that will embody Marsch’s style of play perfectly which is a very exciting proposition.

Is that Mambo? Because we’re about to get number five.

In other Leeds United news, another RB Salzburg player is high on our summer shopping list but we may have to wait a little bit longer before making the move.
