Leeds United make offer for PSG forward Arnaud Kalimuendo - report

Leeds United have made an offer for PSG forward Arnaud Kalimuendo as revealed by The Independent’s Miguel Delaney.

Kalimuendo, 20, has spent the last two seasons out on loan at Lens scoring 12 goals in 34 appearances this season.

However, Delaney revealed on Thursday 16 June, that any deal for the forward is likely to include a buy-back clause should he move to Elland Road.

Exciting prospect

Kalimuendo would be a dynamic and exciting prospect at Elland Road and would certainly add pace and physicality to Leeds’ attacking options.

However, any potential buy-back clause could well have a huge impact on any deal with the Whites.

Signing a younger player and developing him and then selling him back to his former club just doesn’t make sense for Leeds.

The 20-year-old is another example of the younger players that Marsch is clearly targeting this summer and if the Whites can negotiate a deal that doesn’t involve a buy-back clause then it could be worth pursuing.

Marsch clearly likes younger players and it will be intriguing to see how he develops the Whites’ array of youth talent in the 2022/23 season.

Leeds have certainly acted quickly to rectify their awful 2021/22 Premier League campaign and their early business will allow the Elland Road faithful to get excited about a much more successful 2022/23 season.

In other Leeds United news, Joe Gelhardt needs to be one of those two strikers ahead of Scott and Aaronson because he is the club’s most natural number nine.
