Leeds United are still reportedly looking to sign PSG striker Arnaud Kalimuendo, with Football Advisor Luis Campos willing to sell.

The Whites have missed out on the signing of Charles De Ketelaere with the Belgian joining AC Milan, meaning Jesse Marsch will have to look elsewhere for a potential forward signing.

PSG youngster Arnaud Kalimuendo presents one of the most concrete names that the club have been linked with.

Back in June, Leeds had reportedly put down a €20million (£17m) offer for the French striker after his 12-goal season on loan with Lens in 2021/22.

His pre-season form under Christoph Galtier has thrust him right into the plans at the Parc des Princes, scoring twice in pre-season and impressing in the Trophee des champions win over Nantes.

Ben Jacobs is now reporting that despite Galtier being keen to keep him in Ligue 1 this season, there is growing interest from Elland Road, with PSG Football Advisor Luis Campos willing to do business:

There is still work to be done to convince all parties to wrap up a deal, but the Whites aren’t far away from matching the asking price.

It does seem interesting that Leeds have gone from a more rounded attacker in De Ketelaere, to one that seems closer to what we already have in Kalimuendo.

He would be a very good signing at that price and one with huge resale value, so I would certainly on board with bringing him in.

The issue I think we have is that Andrea Radrizzani seems to be suggesting that a new signing isn’t a certainty.

We definitely need one, especially given that we are currently relying on Patrick Bamford staying fit after 12 months of setbacks.
