Leeds United has moved to add attacking

Leeds United has moved to add attacking reinforcements at Elland Road before the conclusion of the January window after tabling a formal £15million bid for RB Salzburg’s American starlet Brenden Aaronson.

As reported by The Athletic’s Leeds writer Phil Hay, Leeds did indeed table an official bid as mentioned previously but have at first been rebuffed by the Austrian Bundesliga outfit who are holding out for a larger fee despite Leeds continuing in their attempts to prise the player to Yorkshire.

Salzburg-Premier League supply line remains open
Brenden Aaronson would hardly be the first bright player to leave RB Salzburg for the Premier League in recent seasons, let alone defacto earn a move to one of Europe’s top leagues in general thanks to the developmental track that exists at the Austrian club.

Die Roten Bullen netted a combined £44million this summer alone when they sold both Patson Daka and Enock Mwepu to English-based sides Leicester City and Brighton irrespective of the eight other players they sold on

But the list does not stop there. Current Wolves striker Hwang Hee-chan moved from Salzburg to RB Leipzig before eventually rocking up to the Molineux, while Liverpool trio Sadio Mané (Southampton from Salzburg) Naby Keïta (Leipzig from Salzburg), and Takumi Minamino (directly) all had successful spells at the club.
