Journalist drops interesting Leeds summer transfer claim involving Marsch

Report: Speedy goal scorer has now been offered to Leeds United
Written by Brigit Adongo

In the wake of reports linking Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi to Leeds United, transfer insider Pete O’Rourke believes a striker will be “definitely” high on the club’s wish list this summer.

According to reports, Jesse Marsch is looking to boost his squad and could make a move for the Belgian in the forthcoming window.

According to the same source, Wolves, Everton, Brighton, and Southampton are all interested in signing the 28-year-old.

He is now on loan at Besiktas, where he is having a fantastic season, scoring 14 goals in 29 league outings.

Batshuayi has scored 136 goals in his professional career, indicating that whoever signs him will be getting a striker.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the football journalist said: “Definitely a striker I think would be high up there on Jesse Marsch’s list of priorities because they’ve badly missed Patrick Bamford this season due to his injury problems.”

Leeds clearly need a new center-forward, and Batshuayi appears to be a viable possibility.

After playing for Chelsea and Crystal Palace, he is familiar with the Premier League and will most likely be available at a cheap price.

Batshuayi isn’t in Thomas Tuchel’s first-team plans and is out of contract next year, so Leeds has a chance to sign him.
