Leeds United must wait for player sales before making Mohamed Camara move

Leeds United need to wait for the sales of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha before they make a bid for Mohamed Camara, according to Ryan Taylor.

The RB Salzburg midfielder is still very much at the forefront of Jesse Marsch’s transfer radar as he looks to overhaul the Whites squad he inherited from Marcelo Bielsa in February.

Camara has already seen Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen leave the Austrian champions to make the move to Elland Road and even the Malian might not be the last to switch Salzburg for Leeds this summer.

Striker Junior Adamu is of interest to the American manager too, as Taylor reported via his personal Twitter account, and RB Leipzig could yet sell Tyler Adams to Leeds United to be the Kalvin Phillips replacement.

“Austrian source optimistic Leeds will make bid once Phillips/Raphinha money lands,” The Express journalist said. “At the moment, nothing concrete to suggest that. Only basic discussions have taken place.”

No rush

With Marsch’s existing relationships at RB Salzburg and the two players we have already signed from the Austrian side, we should not need to worry about any club coming in and hijacking the move for the Malian international.

Taylor does claim that Brighton are interested but they are yet to make any kind of move and we have been in communication with the side that reached the Champions League knockout rounds almost exclusively this summer.

With Kristensen and Aaronson already tied down to a contract at Elland Road, we have all the pulling power necessary to blow the Seagulls out of the water if they attempt to make any kind of transfer happen so all we need now is patience.

As soon as Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips are sold, which could happen soon, then we can go ahead and get everything signed off to seal our fourth new addition of the summer and we aren’t likely to stop there either.

In other Leeds United news, one of the younger midfield targets on Marsch’s list has chosen to go elsewhere but that could actually be a blessing for the Whites.
