Leeds United are primarily looking at bringing further signings into the club, rather than letting their key players go.
Jesse Marsch’s side have been prolific so far in the transfer market, landing three targets to strengthen the midfield and defence.
There are more expected in the coming weeks as the club looks to address the shortcomings that caused last season’s close shave with relegation.
However, Leeds’ stance has remained the same throughout: pay the asking price, or don’t bother.
That isn’t the main focus for Andrea Radrizzani right now, though, because his aim is just to bolster this side as much as he can, as pre-season looms for the Whites.
TalkSPORT are reporting that while Leeds are yet to field any concrete offers for the aforementioned pair, they are focused on incoming signings more than anything under the Italian’s ownership.
Jim White gave this update on air with talkSPORT:
“The man at the top of the football club, Andrea Radrizzani, and his fellow bosses are very much focused on players coming in at this stage.”
That is how it should be, and credit where it’s due, Radrizzani has tackled this window very well so far.
We needed quick signings to plug gaps in the squad and we have done that effectively with Aaronson, Kristensen, and Roca.
With this sort of backing, it’s clear we’re in a strong position to resist the urge to sell Raphinha and Phillips on the cheap.
I can see those two players bringing in huge sums if we do sell, and hopefully, that funds further ambitious business.
