Brenden Aaronson has arrived in England to complete a medical ahead of his $30million move to Leeds United.
Leeds have wasted no time in getting their transfer window off on the right foot after surviving relegation by the skin of their teeth.
A rebuild was always needed this summer, but safety has ensured that Leeds are making ambitious signings to take the side forward.
The Whites are nearing their first signing of the summer with the capture of Red Bull Salzburg and USMNT midfielder Brenden Aaronson.
A long-term target of Leeds’, Victor Orta attempted to bring in the midfielder during the winter window, but his club weren’t willing to part ways with him during their groundbreaking Champions League campaign.
Having missed out in January, Leeds look to have got their man with journalist Tom Bogert reporting that the 21-year-old has arrived in England to complete a medical ahead of the transfer for a reported €30million (£23.8m):
Is Aaronson a good signing?
Dawdling was going to get us nowhere this summer and it’s great to see we’ve had the groundwork laid on this move for some time.
Aaroskon looks like a great fit for Marsch’s setup and a player who is only going to get better with time.
There will be doubts around whether he can cut it in the Premier League, having played in the MLS and Austrian Bundesliga previously, but his Champions League performances are a testament to his talents.
An attacking midfielder is what we have needed for some time now, and for this to be nearly over the line is a great start to the summer.
