Leeds United are one of the busiest clubs in England having already signed 3 players this summer transfer window. The arrivals of Marc Roca, Rasmus Kristensen, and Brenden Aaronson have strengthened Jesse Marsch’s side but their transfer business isn’t over yet.
The Peacocks have reportedly made contact with RB Salzburg to sign midfielder Mohamed Camara who impressed last season for the German Club. The Mali International was a player Jesse Marsch signed for the Salzburg during his tenure there and is certainly wants to bring the 22-year-old to Elland Road. This would be the third time the American manager has raided his previous club with Rasmus Kristensen and Brenden Aaronson also signed from the Austrian club.
Speaking exclusively to LUFCFANZONE, the player’s agent said, ‘Leeds have been in direct contact with RB Salzburg and like the player’s profile. They have only demonstrated their interest and have not yet made an offer – we hope to have an answer very soon.’
What makes Mohamed Camara an interesting prospect?
Fan favourite Kalvin Philipps is heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Manchester City with Pep Guardiola keen on adding the midfielder to his squad ahead of the next season. Camara is a player who could be a long-term replacement for Phillips. His tenacity and defensive solidity in the middle of the park is similar to what Phillips added to the Peacocks’ midfield. With Jesse Marsch predominantly deploying a 4-2-3-1 system, Camara and Roca could be used as the pivot if Phillips departs.
Leeds would be getting a great talent with Camara regarded as a talent to look out for in the Austrian Bundesliga. The move wouldn’t be very expensive for the Yorkshire club and the midfielder would be a great addition to Jesse Marsch’s side. The club hierarchy looks to be prepared to let their star Kalvin Phillips depart and the proactive approach to signing a replacement before the club preseason begins will definitely cheer the Leeds faithful. Though the transfer fee hasn’t been reported it could be a financially feasible deal for Leeds if they sell Kalvin Phillips.
