Leeds may ‘ramp up their efforts’ to complete 57-goal transfer at Elland Road
Jesse Marsch is preparing his side for the 2022-23 season after a summer of upheaval at Elland Road and the club are still on the lookout for new recruits.
What is the latest news on Terrier?
According to a report from L’Equipe, Leeds are interested in signing the 25-year-old this summer with Marsch looking to bolster his front-line.
However, the Whites are not alone in their pursuit of the versatile forward. The same report details that West Ham hold an interest while this week has also seen Everton emerge as potential suitors as well.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Arnaud Kalimuendo also remains on Leeds’ radar, with a £21 million agreement reportedly close, but that has not ruled out a swoop for Terrier as well.
What has Jacobs said on the pursuit of Terrier?
Jacobs understands that Leeds could increase their efforts to sign Terrier in the coming weeks, with the transfer window set to shut on September 1.
The CBS reporter says that the club are keen to once again over rely on an injury prone Patrick Bamford steering clear of injuries, with deals for both Terrier and Kalimuendo on the table.
Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT: “This is a player that Leeds really like. It’s not as advanced as Kalimuendo at this point, but we’re getting to that stage now where Leeds don’t want to start the season over-reliant on Bamford, and as a consequence, they may well ramp up their efforts on Terrier.”
Why are Leeds looking to bolster their attack?
Last season saw the Yorkshire giants cling onto their Premier League status by the skin of their teeth on the final day of the season and a large part of that relegation battle was a toothless attack.
Ensuring they have an attack at their disposal capable of scoring crucial goals will likely be key in the club’s success next season.
