This is your Leeds United morning news for Thursday, August 4. Adams’s forest vision According to Football Insider, Nottingham Forest are set to compete with Leeds United for Southampton forward Che Adams. Forest has begun talks about a potential deal for the striker after making an approach for him. The Sun reported on Monday that Leeds are planning a move for the Scotland international, with United looking to pay around £10 million. Southampton are ‘willing to listen’ to offers for Adams, and it appears that Leeds aren’t the only club interested in him. TAKE PART: ‘The Big Leeds United Forum’ – Squad concerns, new arrivals, and Jesse Marsch approval Forest have already made significant investments in their squad, with a total of 12 new arrivals. Nigerian forward Taiwo Awoniyi has joined from Union Berlin, but with Keinan Davis unlikely to return, Steve Cooper may want to bolster his attack. Adams has 20 Premier League goals in 96 appearances for Southampton over three seasons. The 26-year-old has also scored five goals in 19 Scotland appearances and competed in the 2020 European Championships last summer. Wake-up call in the Leeds dressing room Six goals in their final pre-season friendly before their Premier League opener against Wolverhampton Wanderers has turned up the heat, but Jesse Marsch still needed to issue a dressing-room warning. The Whites had five minutes of madness during which Cagliari scored twice on the break with all-too-familiar goals, and the head coach spoke after the game. Marsch is aware that opposition counter-attacks were a problem that needed to be addressed this summer, but his focus on Sunday was on Robin Koch. The Germany international required treatment and was limping, leaving the team vulnerable to goals. “It was a good performance,” Marsch said. “In the first half, we created a lot but didn’t capitalize on some opportunities, and in the second half, it was good to add some goals and give our team confidence.” The full story can be found here. Whites have committed to a long-term strategy. Leeds made a clear statement of intent when they announced the news that fans had been waiting for on Tuesday morning. Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood, and Crysencio Summerville are three of Elland Road’s brightest young talents, and by committing to long-term contracts, Leeds has ensured they have the platform to realize their potential in a white shirt. It was a move that demonstrated Leeds’ ambition, and in the years to come, United could well build a team around the trio as they progress from fringe players to first team stars. Jesse Marsch has already demonstrated his willingness to give opportunities to those who deserve them, and Gelhardt, Greenwood, and Summerville have more than piqued the head coach’s interest since his arrival.
