Leeds United still have some business to do as the hours wind down on the January transfer window, with Marcelo Bielsa lacking depth in his squad.
There is virtually no debate to be had when it comes to Leeds’ current squad, and that is that they need to add more to it to avoid the risk of being caught short in the relegation dogfight.
When fully fit, this squad has more than enough to climb out of that argument, but this squad is very rarely fully fit.
This means that Victor Orta is likely still busy scouring for the right candidates to resolve the problems in this side before the deadline.
Here, we take a look at two potential incomings we could see at Elland Road before Monday’s deadline…
The longer this speculation drags on without any update, the less likely it’s looking that Red Bull Salzburg will let the USMNT ace leave this month.
However, as he’s on international duty, Leeds could yet go big to sign the midfielder and add some real quality to their setup through the middle.
The latest offer of £20million is a lot to be playing for a 21-year-old, but it shows Leeds’ eagerness to seal his arrival to LS11.
Leeds are under pressure to complete a signing of this calibre and the fact that his stock is only going to rise means the club will want to get this one done as soon as possible.
Another player that could be on the cards to help solve Leeds’ midfield frailties is Marseille man Boubacar Kamara.
With his contract due to expire in the summer, he’s been linked with a move to Leeds again in a transfer that would only cost around £10million to complete.
A more defensive option, Kamara would come in as cover for both Kalvin Phillips and the number eight role, allowing Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich to play solely further up the pitch rather than deeper to cover the Yorkshire Pirlo.
He does not appear to be a prime target this month like Aaronson, but this reported contact with his agent might suggest that the Whites could be ready to pounce if this go sour with Salzburg.
