Report: 26-year-old now 'highly likely' to leave in January, after claims Leeds want to sign him

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch will be looking at the January transfer window as a chance to bring in players that could secure their Premier League status.

A report from Torino Granata suggests they’ve now got a great chance of bringing in one of their targets.

Marsch will be considering how he can possibly improve every position within his squad if the opportunity arises.

The American has chopped and changed in defence and attack, but kept his midfield very consistent.

Tyler Adams and Marc Roca were both brought in this summer, and immediately cemented their place in the starting line-up.

Adams is now in Qatar, and had a fantastic game against Wales after being awarded the captain’s armband.

Roca has become a popular figure at Leeds in his short time at the club, and is loving life at Elland Road.

The futures of Adam Forshaw and Matesuz Klich are both up in the air.

Leeds would therefore be wise to try and bring in another midfielder in January.

Torino Granata now believe that Leeds target Sasa Lukic is very likely to leave in January.

Lukic would be a ready-made replacement for Forshaw or Klich if either player were to move on.

Lukic likely to leave in January

A report from Tuttomercatoweb suggests that Leeds are leading the race to sign Lukic.

The 26-year-old has been valued at £13m, which in today’s market is a modest fee for an international footballer.

Lukic is part of Serbia’s World Cup squad, and will be coming up against the likes of Neymar and Vinicius Jr. tonight.

The midfielder is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder or in a deeper, central role.

He’s never been the most prolific player, and typically sits when his Torino side counter-attack, protecting the defence.

Lukic is an adequate passer, but doesn’t tend to progress play often, instead opting for the safer option.

If Lukic is likely to leave Torino in January, Leeds stand a great chance of signing him.

It would then be up to Marsch to work out what his best role in the side would be.
