Let’s kick off with today’s rumours

Leeds interested in Arthur Cabral? - reports

Reports in South America suggested over the weekend that Leeds have put in a bid in the region of £16m for Palmeiras striker Arthur Cabral. 

The 22-year-old Brazilian who has been capped for his country’s under-23s has been on loan at Swiss side Basel. 

Cabral bagged 18 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions last season for a side who reached the Europa League quarter-finals.

Leif Davis on the move?

Portsmouth and Stoke City are both keen on taking young Whites defender Leif Davis on loan according to reports in The Mirror.  

Chelsea are reportedly closing in on a move for Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.

That could have a knock on effect, of course, over how the Seagulls view Ben White in this summer’s market.

Leeds have had bids of £18m and £22m turned down so far and were expected to go back for their former loanee once again.

Brighton have been insistent in their stance of not wanting to sell White and reports over the weekend suggested that head coach Graham Potter wants to evaluate the centre-back over pre-season.

White has turned down improved contract offers at the AMEX stadium so far and have two years left on his current deal.
