Leeds ‘in talks’ over £17.8m deal while working on agreement for 26-year-old

Leeds are continuing a busy summer of transfer business by attempting to push through two more transfer deals as they prepare for next season’s return to the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side secured the signings of defender Robin Koch from Freiburg and forward Rodrigo from Valencia over the weekend and it looks as though there could be more new additions on the way.

Reputable journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that the Whites are currently in talks to complete the acquisition of Josko Gvardiol from Dinamo Zagreb.

The deal for the Croatian defender is expected to cost roughly £17.8million as Bielsa looks to bolster his backline for the upcoming campaign.

And as per Romano, the business is unlikely to end there for Leeds with the club also in pursuit of Udinese midfielder Rodrigo Paul, a player who is being chased by the likes of Napoli, Inter Milan and Juventus as well, according to Italian outlet CalcioMercato.
