Leeds United could now launch Bundesliga raid with another attacker transfer on cards

Leeds United could return to the Bundesliga to sign another attacker this summer, according to Alex Crook.

The talkSPORT reporter has shared that Victor Orta is possibly on the lookout for another winger, and could look to Germany to solve that issue between now and the deadline.

A new left-back and striker has been mentioned most at Elland Road with Joel Robles set to come in and replace Kiko Casilla this week to solve that problem for Jesse Marsch.

Speaking to Give Me Sport in the past 24 hours, Crook shared the latest he had heard about transfer plans coming from Elland Road for the rest of the month.

“They’ve [Leeds] always been on the lookout for another winger, again I don’t necessarily have an extensive list of names.

“I think my guess would be that it would probably be somebody from the Bundesliga, that Jesse Marsch knows from that division, so I think there’s still a possibility of a couple of arrivals.”


It looks as though money has been made available for Orta and Marsch, with Andrea Radrizzani looking to build a much more well-rounded squad.

Going to the Bundesliga again would make sense with the American having worked there before his move to Elland Road, and Tyler Adams has already made that switch too.

Looking at the names that have been linked with a move to West Yorkshire though, and none of the wingers have come from Germany, with other areas of the squad surely bigger priorities right now.

Luis Sinisterra is on the verge of returning from his injury and could even be available for the trip to Southampton, so that would help dramatically with options off the bench, with Crysencio Summerville also set for more game time.

Leeds are always ready to pounce on a transfer if it appears from nowhere, but unless that happens, expect just a new striker and left-back to follow Robles to Elland Road.
