REPORT: Leeds United has signed Manchester City best player who is PSG and four club target

Leeds United are one of many clubs who want to sign Swansea City striker Joel Piroe this summer, according to Phil Hay.

The Athletic journalist has shared many targets that are lined up at Elland Road after the announcement of Daniel Farke as their new manager.

Nottingham Forest talisman Sam Surridge has already been earmarked as a back-up option as the Whites clearly target another number nine.

Patrick Bamford is one of few players who are yet to be linked with an exit following relegation, with the Whites also said to be happy to retain Rodrigo.

The club also has no plans to part ways with club-record signing Georginio Rutter, although he is set as more of a wide man by the new management team.

Piroe did fire in 20 goals in the Championship and FA Cup last season, and has proved that he can find the back of the net with ease at this level, scoring 22 the year before

Piroe is a goal machine, and his only target in games is to put himself into positions where he can easily find the back of the net, something he does brilliantly.

Bamford has come under scrutiny at Elland Road, and the pressure has seen him lose that edge, with his best work now done with his back to goal, not infront of it.

Farke held talks over transfers with Nick Hammond and the 49ers Enterprises before signing on the dotted line, and he will have clearly been happy with what he heard.

With big-money wages already being freed up through the imminent loan exits of Diego Llorente, Robin Koch and Brenden Aaronson, Leeds will have cash to use.

More players will be expected to leave, for actual fees too, meaning that the bank of Leeds will be busy over the next month or two, before and after the Championship season starts.


The 26-year-old defender has joined the German club on loan for next season.

In our opinion, it was always likely that Robin Koch would leave Leeds United in the summer transfer window.

After all, Leeds will play in the Championship next season after getting relegated from the Premier League.

And Koch was unlikely to play in the second tier of English football.

After all, the 26-year-old who can also operate as a defensive midfielder, is a Germany international and has done well for Leeds in the Premier League.

Eintracht Frankfurt are a big club in Germany who could feature in the UEFA Europa Conference League next season and will also aim to challenge for the UEFA Europa League places in the Bundesliga table.
