Report: Leeds could still make two signings after Klaesson deal
Leeds United may reportedly still make two signings this summer after completing a deal for Kristoffer Klaesson on Saturday.
The Whites confirmed this morning that they have signed 20-year-old Norwegian goalkeeper Klaesson on a four-year deal from Valerenga. He’s arrived at Elland Road to play a back-up role to number one Illan Meslier.
The Yorkshire club have already strengthened Marcelo Bielsa’s squad this summer with a couple of other signings. Talented left-back Junior Firpo has joined from Spanish giants Barcelona. Meanwhile, Jack Harrison has finally moved to the club on a permanent basis from Manchester City after previous successful loan spells.
According to The Athletic, Leeds could still spend more money during this window.
The report explains that the signing of a central midfielder has been a priority for them. They are assessing their options after missing out to Crystal Palace for signing Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher on loan.
In addition, Leeds are still going to consider bringing in a new winger if the right option is available to them.
What can Leeds achieve this season?
For neutrals, many are expecting Leeds to be an outside shot for the European positions in the new season. This comes as a result of an excellent return to the Premier League last year.
However, the second season back in the top flight can often proven tough.
There is so much talent within the group that they have every right to be ambitious. But, the focus should be getting to that 40-point mark as quickly as possible before looking upwards.
Firpo’s arrival at the club looks a really shrewd one, but a midfielder is definitely a signing they have to try make happen this summer.
