Leeds United are going to take their transfer business right to the wire on deadline day, with links to players emerging by the hour.
As much as it might not be how the fans envisaged the transfer window playing out, Leeds are conducting a lot of vital transfer business in the final hours of the transfer window.
Incomings are what the fans are hoping to see before the 11pm deadline, with forwards and left-backs being the main priority.
After seeing Cody Gakpo’s proposed move fall through this morning, the club are pushing hard on contingencies.
Here, we look at two incomings that we could see before the window shuts tonight…
The Marseille striker is yet to feature this season amid speculation about his future, and he has emerged as a top target and a likely signing for Leeds.
Reports have very recently revealed that Leeds are looking to sign the player on a permanent deal at around £10million (per Mike McGrath), while Fabrizio Romano has reported that the club are close to agreeing personal terms:
While Dieng has not played for Marseille this season, he managed seven goals and three assists in 25 appearances last term in Ligue 1, with only 11 of those outings being starts.
Is James leaving a good idea?
The West Ham right-back has been strongly linked with a move away from the London Stadium, and Leeds are one of the sides he is now attracting interest from.
Journalist Alan Nixon has linked Leeds with a move today, with the Whites hoping to seal a move for the 20-year-old defender before the deadline.
It is unclear whether he would be allowed to leave with the Irons having injury troubles at the back, but the player is open to the move to Elland Road.
