Leeds United want to bring Philadelphia Union defender Kai Wagner to the Premier League, according to Manuel Veth. What is the backstory? Jesse Marsch is said to be friends with Philadelphia Union manager Jim Curtin, who has previously admitted that the left-back could leave the country if the money is right for the club’s Sporting Director. “If the money’s right,” Curtin said, “I think Ernst (Tanner) would obviously entertain it.” Despite that encouraging news, Leeds must outbid Benfica and Dinamo Zagreb for Wagner, who has established himself as one of the most creative players in Major League Soccer. The German has provided five assists in 24 MLS appearances so far this season, and has actually registered more assists since July than Xherdan Shaqiri.

Benfica and Dinamo Zagreb have both expressed interest in the #DOOP star. This summer will be pivotal for the 25-year-old German! #LUFC https://twitter.com/0JC64HEJJQ Manuel Veth (@ManuelVeth) — August 10, 2022 View Tweet ‘He doesn’t hide’: Micah Richards says Leeds ace is this season’s ‘one to watch’ £26m star now interested in signing for Everton after Leeds United backed away In fact, the Brotherly Game – a Philadelphia Union page – believes Wagner has an “elite” left-foot, while he is also among the most “dangerous” technicians in the entire division. Leeds could do with another left-back after losing Junior Firpo to injury for eight weeks – the defender suffered an injury in July during a friendly against Crystal Palace. Leeds could sign a gem in Kai Wagner As we’ve seen with the likes of Miguel Almiron, success in the United States does not always translate to the Premier League – the difference is quality between both divisions is vast, to say the least. However, Wagner’s qualities seem to be befitting of a top player – as aforesaid, he is outperforming Shaqiri on a creative level, a man who has played at the highest level for Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan. Of course, he could be quite suspect defensively, although Marsch knows football well in that area of the world, so we would trust him to know all about the 25-year-old and what he can do. Be sure to keep an eye on this situation, as we would be very surprised if Leeds do not sign another left-back.
