The following are the most recent Leeds United transfer rumours for Monday, August 8. Leeds receives a ‘boost’ at left-back. Leeds United’s search for a new left-back may have been aided. The Whites have been linked with PSV’s Philipp Max, who has also been linked with a move to Hoffenheim, but they are now set to sign Angelino instead, according to reports. Last week, German outlet Kicker reported that Hoffenheim were competing with Leeds for Max. However, according to Fabrizio Romano, Angelino will join Hoffenheim on loan with the option to buy for €20 million (£17 million). The Whites’ main rivals in the race to sign Max appear to be out of the picture. ‘No faith in VAR,’ says pundit after Rasmus Kristensen’s penalty save for Leeds United. Leeds face a ‘obstacle’ in Kalimuendo. Leeds United are reportedly still interested in signing PSG forward Arnaud Kalimuendo, but the deal may have hit a snag. The Whites’ pursuit is hampered, according to 90min, by the fact that new PSG head coach Christophe Galtier is a big fan of the 20-year-old. Leeds has indicated a willingness to pay close to €25 million for the PSG academy graduate, and that fee is nearing approval, but Galtier wants to keep the striker. Kalimuendo has two years left on his contract with the Ligue 1 club and is reportedly not looking to leave. The deal’s success or failure could hinge on Galtier’s willingness to let go of Kalimuendo. Joel Robles’ most recent Joel Robles, the goalkeeper, is expected to complete his move to Leeds on Monday. According to the Daily Mail, Robles has agreed to a one-year contract with Elland Road.

The 32-year-old left Real Betis this summer for Leeds on a free transfer, where he will provide backup to Illan Meslier. The former Everton and Wigan stopper could be seen as a direct replacement for Kiko Casilla, who left the Whites last month by mutual consent.
