Report: Leeds interested in Red Bull Salzburg striker Junior Adamu

Leeds United are interested in Junior Adamu, with Sky Austria reporting that the Whites could be looking to sign a third Red Bull Salzburg player this summer.

Of course, the Whites already have one new signing through the door in this window. Brenden Aaronson arrived shortly after Jesse Marsch’s men secured survival in the Premier League.

And Rasmus Kristensen looks set to be their second addition. Reports claimed that Leeds have made a £10 million bid for the Denmark international right-back.

And it now seems that another player could be offered the chance to move from Austria to Elland Road. Sky Austria reports that Leeds want Adamu, along with Southampton and West Ham.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha Berlin also want the 21-year-old.

Adamu scored nine goals and provided five assists in all competitions this past season. He also made his debut for the Austria national team late last year. And it was Adamu who scored Salzburg’s goal in their 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich during the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Sky Austria suggests that Salzburg want a fee of around £8.5 million for the youngster.

Leeds interested in Junior Adamu

Like a lot of players in the Red Bull network, Adamu looks to have a very bright future ahead. He can play in a few roles across the forward line. And he boasts frightening pace.

However, Leeds fans may have their concerns about the links. The Whites need a striker to share the goalscoring burden with Patrick Bamford this coming year. Adamu has not yet been particularly prolific in the top-flight.

If Leeds are looking at Adamu and another attacking player, you would argue that a move could be a really good piece of business.

But supporters may have their doubts initially if Leeds sign Adamu and no other forwards.
