After securing the services of Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen, Leeds United have set their sights on yet another young talent from Austrian champions, RB Salzburg.

The Whites look to be going for an all-out raid on Jesse Marsch’s former side, as Junior Adamu finds his way on Leeds’ list of transfer targets.

Sky Sports Austria report that Leeds have joined West Ham, Southampton, Hertha Berlin, Frankfurt and, unsurprisingly, RB Leipzig in the race for the young striker.

Having scored nine goals and assisted five in all competitions this season, the 21-year-old is priced at £8.5 million.

Adamu is an ambitious player with the ball at his feet. Much like Joe Gelhardt, he fancies his chances against defenders one-on-one and could provide valuable competition for the likes of young Gelhardt, Patrick Bamford, and Rodrigo.

Would you be happy to see Adamu through the door at Elland Road. Who would you like to see Leeds sign this summer? Let us know on Twitter @ThruItAllLUFC.
