As they say, the Transfer News Mill never stops and Leeds United have made the statement clear. Since the start of the transfer window, the whites are linked with dozens of players from around the European Continent but are yet to making an official signing. Let’s take a look at the transfer roundup surrounding the club.

Leeds United join rivals Chelsea in the race to sign Wolves Winger Adama Traore

After Joining Wolves in 2018, Traore’s numbers are unsatisfactory as he scored only 10 goals since his arrival but the 25 year old is still considered an exciting prospect and possesses the ability to outrun his opponents with his electric pace.

Reports state that Bielsa is currently trying to determine the value of the player and may launch a bid of around £40m for the winger. But Wolves are currently valuing him at a staggering price of £80m, so it’s quite uncertain why Leeds would be paying so much money for a player who is yet to prove his worth in the English Top Flight since joining 3 years ago.

Bielsa Looking for a reunion with Andre Ayew

A Report from the Wales Online state that Andre Ayew is linked with a move to Leeds United amid links with Celtic.

Ayew, now a free agent after his Swansea contract elapsed, is currently away with the national team.

Marcelo Bielsa and Ayew worked together during their time at Marseille, and a reunion cannot be ruled out completely.

But the 31-year-old is likely to be highly sought after due to his free transfer status, although his wage demands will put a few suitors off.

Leeds Making a Run for Rubin Kazan Forward Khivcha Kvaratskhelia

According to TV dello Sport journalist Rudy Galetti, Everton and Leeds United are going head-to-head for the signature of Rubin Kazan forward Khvicha Kvaratskhelia this summer.

The Links are primary and there has been no talks between the player or the club with Leeds. Everton and Liverpool are also in the race because of his much appealing price tag of around €25 million. ‘

Khvicha was named the best young player 2019-20 and the 2020-21 seasons of the Russian Premier League.

From my point of view, this transfer to Leeds is the most unlikely one as the player’s dream is to play for the reds of the Merseyside and also because of him cheap price tag, many clubs are hovering around like Vultures trying to secure the player.
