'Yes': Jesse Marsch shares signing Leeds United are definitely looking to make this summer at latest press conference
Leeds have been on the search for a new forward to compete with Patrick Bamford this summer.
The England international struggled with injuries last summer, and has already picked up knock this season.
Leeds would like to bring in a new forward, with several names being linked in recent days.
Watford forward Joao Pedro has been a player Leeds have monitored, with interest from elsewhere in the Premier League.
Armando Broja has also been linked with a move to Elland Road, after being left out of the Chelsea squad when they visited Leeds on Sunday.
Marsch confirms Leeds are still looking for new striker
With only a week left in the transfer window, Marsch delivered some promising news for Leeds fans.
As reported by LeedsLive, the American manager said: “Striker: yes. How likely? Dependent on a lot of others, how things play out, availability elsewhere.
“We do not have a surplus of money to go out and spend a huge transfer. Waiting to see. Communicating with agents and clubs. See their situation.”
A loan move may make the most sense for Leeds right now given Marsch’s admittance that he doesn’t have a lot to spend right now.
There are sure to be plenty of players on the market in the final few days of the window, as incomings elsewhere mean outgoings need to take place.
With Marsch confirming that signing a new striker is Leeds’ focus for the rest of the window, he and Andrea Radrizzani now have to wait for the right opportunity to arrive.
