On Sunday, 7 August, here are the most recent Leeds United transfer rumours. Leeds’ vision midfielder from Ecuador’ Leeds United are said to be in a race with Napoli and Leicester City to sign Los Angeles FC midfielder Jose Cifuentes this summer. According to the French outlet Jeunes Footeux, the Whites have been watching the Ecuadorian international, who has 12 goals and 12 assists in 68 appearances in Major League Soccer.

According to the report, an unnamed Ligue 1 club is also interested in the 23-year-old. Cifuentes’ contract expires in December 2023, and he is worth around £5 million. Cifuentes has played eight times for Ecuador and could play in the World Cup in 2022. As Ecuador U20s won the 2019 South American U20 Championship, he also scored the game-winning goal against Argentina. He went on to play in the 2019 U20 World Cup, alongside Luis Sinisterra and Erling Haaland, scoring the game-winning goal against the United States to advance to the semi-finals. Update on Kalimuendo According to journalist Ben Jacobs, Paris Saint-Germain advisor Luis Campos is willing to sell Arnaud Kalimuendo due to strong interest from Leeds United. However, according to the report, newly appointed PSG manager Christoph Galtier is interested in the France U21 forward and would prefer to sell Argentine forward Mauro Icardi. Kalimuendo has also piqued the interest of French club Stade Rennes after scoring 12 goals on loan at RC Lens last season. Leeds have reportedly tabled a £16.7 million bid for Kalimuendo, but PSG have told the Whites that the 20-year-old is worth £22 million. Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani revealed in an interview with The Athletic on Friday that the Whites were monitoring an attacker after missing out on Charles de Ketelaere. However, Radrizzani has stated that Leeds will not be held hostage over any transactions. “I’m very comfortable with the team and am confident that we will succeed.” We’re keeping an eye on things and talking to Jesse and Victor about it. We’re still on the lookout for an offensive player. “It could be a number nine or a number nine/10,” Radrizzani explained. “We don’t know yet because it is dependent on the profile.” We are also looking for a left-back due to the injury to Junior [Firpo], but he is expected to return soon, so we will keep you updated. We don’t have to make a deal at any price.” Orta dismisses Guedes connections Links to Valencia forward Goncalo Guedes have been labeled as ‘clickbait’ by Leeds sporting director Victor Orta. Orta told Radio Marca, “Guedes to Leeds is just clickbait.” I’ve never discussed this with Guedes, his agent, or Valencia. There isn’t anything at all.” Guedes scored 13 goals in 42 games for Valencia last season, but the club is looking to offload key players in order to address financial issues and facilitate their policy of promoting players from their own academy.
