Report: Leeds have made most progress over signing £17m player, but there's a problem emerging

Young PSG striker Arnaud Kalimuendo is not convinced by a move to Leeds, according to a report from L’Equipe.

The update suggests that PSG are willing to sell Kalimuendo as new manager Christophe Galtier cannot guarantee the 20-year-old the game time he desires.

Leeds are one of a number of clubs interested in signings the French under-21 international, and are the ‘most active club’ in pursuit of the forward.

However, a move to Leeds is not a priority for the attacker, with l’Equipe reporting that Rennes and Nice are both keen on signing Kalimuendo.

Leeds need to sign a striker, Kalimuendo would be a great option

Leeds have been particularly active in the transfer marker so far this summer, with six players already brought in on permanent deals.

Luis Sinisterra and Brenden Aaronson have already strengthen Leeds’ attacking options after the departure of Raphinha, but the club have failed to bring in a centre forward to challenge Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt.

Jesse Marsch’s side have been heavily linked with a move for Charles de Ketelaere, but the Belgian international is pushing to sign for AC Milan, and have been told it would take a ‘ludicrous offer’ to bring in Brentford striker Ivan Toney.

Kalimuendo had a successful loan spell at Ligue 1 side RC Lens last season, scoring 12 goals and finishing as the club’s top scorer.

The Frenchman therefore seems like a brilliant alternative if they can convince him to come to Elland Road, with a £17m offer reportedly already on the table.
