Whites keen on Championship-based Chilean international - reports

Chilean outlet RedGol are claiming that Leeds have an interest in Blackburn Rovers striker and Chilean international Ben Brereton who is currently with Chile in the Copa America.

Brereton has chosen to play for Chile due to his mother's Chilean heritage and RedGol claim Leeds have scouts keeping an eye on the 22-year-old who they say has been on Marcelo Bielsa's radar since Leeds faced Rovers in the Championship.

  • Transfer window open until 11pm on Tuesday, August 31.

Whites have ‘shown interest’ in Forest winger

Leeds United are one of several clubs to have shown an interest in Nottingham Forest’s Wales international winger Brennan Johnson, according to The Athletic. Johnson, 20, spent last season on loan at Lincoln City but already has two caps for Wales.

Whites reportedly interested in Croatian international winger

Leeds have shown some intertest in VfL Wolfsburg's Croatian international winger Josip Brekalo according to German publication SportBild. Brekalo bagged seven goals and three assists in 29 league matches last season and the 23-year-old is part of the Croatia squad at this summer's Euros. The winger has two years left on his current deal but Wolfsburg could be set to cash in and sell Brekalo for around 15 million Euros.

Euros heartache for Klich

Club Brugges winger Noa Lang is a player Leeds like and among the possible targets in the club’s search for a winger. But Brugges boss Phillipe Clement has fired a warning to any sides looking to sign any of his club’s star players. “Today we are in a different situation,” said Clement to the media, as quoted by voetbalnieuws. “We can now refuse certain offers. Our strong players will only leave for really large amounts.”

Fresh Nahitan Nandez reports

Sardinian publication L'Unione Sarda are suggesting that a deal for Leeds to sign 25-year-old Uruguay international midfielder Nahitan Nandez is 'close.' Quite how accurate those reports are remain to be seen but L'Unione Sarda say: "For Nandez the Italian tracks of Rome and Inter are moving away, the Uruguayan is ready to leave for Leeds United. It would be the most expensive operation in history for the whites, given the release clause of the midfielder, 36 million. The negotiation will not be a flash, and is now frozen in order not to distract the player engaged in the America's Cup."

Javi Galan competition

Mundo Deportivo are reporting that both Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are looking to sign Huesca left back Javi Galan who has been linked with a move to Leeds this summer. Mundo Deportivo claim that Leeds are favourites to land his services.
