Marsch going all out on summer target

According to the YorkshirEveningPost, Leeds coach Jesse Marsch is said to be “going all out to land summer target Julian Quinones.”

After suffering set backs in the pursuit of a striker after missing out on Charles De Ketelaere and Arnaud Kalimuendo, Leeds are intent on bringing in the Colombian forward. Marsch is apparently a big admirer of the Atlas FC attacker, and is desperate to get the deal over the line. The report claims Leeds are battling Strasbourg for the signing of the Colombian star, and it’s thought a bid would need to be worth around £4.2million to get the striker to Elland Road.

It has already been a busy summer for Leeds after securing the likes of Tyler Adams, Brendan Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca and Luis Sinisterra, but it is still evident they need to rebuild even further with a left back and a forward their top priority.

Paris Saint-Germain starlet Arnaud Kalimuendo  has been linked with a move to Elland Road in recent weeks, but according to the French media, Rennes have now made the forward their priority with the season fast approaching. Reports claim Rennes are willing to pay around £20million to secure a deal for Kalimuendo, a fee Leeds may be reluctant to compete with despite generating cash from the sales of Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips to Barcelona and Manchester City respectively this summer.

It remains to be seen whether Leeds are still interested in a deal for Quinones, but he could well be a more tempting option given his price.
