Former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan has suggested that Leeds should make Brentford forward Ollie Watkins their top transfer target this summer.
Ahead of their return to the Premier League, Leeds are in dire need of attacking players in order to challenge Patrick Bamford’s goal scoring exploits.
Watkins scored 26 goals in 49 appearances last season and is widely regarded as one of the top prospects outside the Premier League.
Leeds United may miss out on Arsenal goalkeeper Emi Martinez this summer after the Gunners shot stopper revealed that 10 clubs have enquired about his services.
Martinez was excellent in the absence of Arsenal number one Bernd Leno in the second half of last season, helping the club to FA Cup glory.
Having spent 10 years at the Emirates Stadium, Martinez has never been given a fair run in the side and, with Leno expected to return to his starting role, he has decided to consider a move elsewhere.
Reports in Germany claim that Leeds United are one of four clubs to bid for Mainz striker Jean-Paul Boetius this summer.
According to news publication BILD, Boetius’ agent Erkan Alkan has revealed that there are a number of clubs who are considering a move for the 26-year-old.
Leeds will face stiff competition from the likes of Fulham, Fiorentina and Sevilla if they are to sign Boetius in the 2020 summer transfer window.
According to reports, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa is looking to bring Stuttgart forward Nicolas Gonzalez to the club this summer.
With Leeds preparing for a long-awaited return to the Premier League, Bielsa knows just how important shrewd investment is in the transfer window.
Like Bielsa, Gonzalez is Argentinian and the 22-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe, including Inter Milan and Atalanta.
Cody Drameh has revealed that he would love to follow in Benjamin Mendy’s footsteps while working under Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the 18-year-old has expressed his desire to take his game to new heights – just as Mendy did under Bielsa’s guidance.
“First and foremost, I want to try and break into the first team and the club has ambition so will see where it goes,” he said.
According to the latest Leeds United transfers news report, Nahitan Nandez has been linked with a sensational move to Elland Road this summer.
Having signed for Cagliari last summer, Nandez enjoyed an impressive first season in Serie A and a number of Premier League clubs have been linked with the 24-year-old.
West Ham have shown interest in the midfielder in recent months but Leeds are the latest top flight side to be linked with a move for Nandez ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
Arsenal defender Rob Holding ticks all the right boxes and could be a suitable target for Leeds United before the end of the summer transfer window.
Holding has gained invaluable Premier League experience during his time at the Emirates Stadium but may be tempted to move to Elland Road in a bid to secure regular first team football.
