Leeds United have endured another busy week in the summer transfer market.

After endless speculation, Raphinha finally sealed a move to Barcelona on Friday, with the Whites bidding farewell to a player who has consistently proven himself to be a standout performer during his time at Elland Road.

The Brazilian’s exit represents a considerable, if somewhat expected, blow for Jesse Marsch, who will now be hoping to reinvest some of the winger’s transfer fee into bolstering his squad ahead of his side’s Premier League curtain-raiser against Wolves on August 6th.

In the meantime, however, Leeds have already been active in the market themselves, and deals for Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Darko Gyabi, Marc Roca, Luis Sinisterra, and Tyler Adams have notably altered the dressing room at Elland Road in recent months.

Taking all of that account, we’ve ran the rule over the Whites’ current squad - factoring in injuries and ignoring potential transfer speculation - to predict Marsch’s strongest starting XI as things stand at present.
