'Something is coming': Journalist makes exciting Leeds United transfer claim as deadline day nears

Leeds United are still chasing a striker this summer, and have cash available to make a deal happen, according to journalist Dean Jones.

Jones was speaking to Give Me Sport and was discussing Jesse Marsch’s plans for the remaining time in the transfer window.

Leeds are chasing others right now as well, no doubt.

“There is still a worry about a back-up for (Patrick) Bamford and they have cash available, so I think something is coming.”

It’s an exciting statement on Leeds who have looked good in their opening three Premier League matches.

Leeds beat Wolves on the opening day and followed this up with a draw against Southampton that their fans may have been slightly disappointed with

The disappointment would have been quickly forgotten about after the visit of Chelsea, as Leeds put them to the sword with a convincing 3-0 win.

Leeds are still chasing a striker

Goals haven’t been hard to come by for Marsch’s side this season, with only Manchester City, Arsenal and Brentford outscoring the Whites.

Rodrigo is the league’s current top scorer with four goals, and has filled in for Patrick Bamford expertly.

Although Rodrigo has played as a striker before, including for Spain, his best role is in behind a number nine.

Leeds bringing in another forward to compete with Bamford would make sense given his injury issues.

However, this could be to the detriment of young attackers Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood, who have performed well when called upon.

Leeds have been linked with a move for Armando Broja, who was left out of Chelsea’s squad when they played at Elland Road on Sunday.

There’s also an interest in Juventus’ Moise Kean, but the Italian forward could impact the development of Leeds’ other young talent if he came in on a permanent deal.

If the end of the transfer window is anywhere near as exciting as the football has been at Leeds so far, then their fans are in for a treat.
