Leeds striker link resurfaces, move for winger heats up, prospect wraps up exit

Leeds United have been busy in the transfer market but are still looking to complete more business before the window slams shut at the end of the month.

Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa has already confirmed the signings of Junior Firpo, Lewis Bate and Kristoffer Klaesson this summer, along with deals for youngsters Sean McGurk and Amari Miller.

Leeds have also wrapped up a permanent switch for last year's loan star Jack Harrison from Manchester City.

But Bielsa is still eager to do more business – with bolstering his midfield a key priority.

Here, Daily Star Sport takes a look at all of the latest transfer rumblings from around Elland Road.

Leeds striker link resurfaces

Leeds target Matheus Cunha appears to be on the move after he was excluded from Hertha Berlin's squad to face VfL Wolfsburg.

And Sky Germany are reporting that the striker, who recently won a gold medal with Brazil at the Olympics, has been left out of the squad for transfer reasons.

The hitman racked up eight goals and seven assists across 28 appearances in the Bundesliga last season.

The 22-year-old is reportedly available for a sum of £12.9m – meaning he would fit the bill as a realistic option to bolster Bielsa's forward line.

They will have to shrug off interest from Atletico Madrid according to BILD.

Move for winger heats up

Where will Leeds finish this year? Comment below

Leeds move for Club Brugge winger Noa Lang could be set to accelerate.

The Belgian outfit wrapped up a double deal before the weekend, snapping up attacking midfielder Owen Otasowie from Wolves and Roma winger Ruben Providence.

The capture of the duo could be an indicator that Brugge are preparing for the departure of Lang.

Bielsa is known to be in the market for midfield recruits, so a move for Lang would be a welcome boost for the Leeds boss.

Prospect wraps up exit

Young defender Nial Huggins has wrapped up his permanent switch to Sunderland.

The 20-year-old defender came through the Leeds academy but his departure from Elland Road has been in the works all week.

The defender has now made the switch to League One, penning a four-year deal with the Black Cats.

No fee has been disclosed by either side, although the Whites have retained a sell-on clause for the full-back.
