RB Salzburg aggressor Brenden Aaronson would be interested in a movement to Leeds United in the summer, says transfer insider Pete O’Rourke.
The Whites failed in their attempts to sign him last month, but O’Rourke thinks the 21-year-old is open up to the idea of joining a Premier League club.
What happened in the last transfer window?
Leeds made a real effort to sign Aaronson in January but could not persuade Salzburg to sell in the finish.
According to The Athletic, an initial £15m bid was made, while Heaven Sports later went on to claim that the Yorkshire club had made an increased £20m offering later on seeing their first one knocked back.
Leeds’ failure to land Aaronson meant they did non sign a unmarried role player terminal month, with manager Marcelo Bielsa clearly preferring to wait for the American to become available instead of signing an alternative.
As per The Able-bodied’s Phil Hay, the Argentine volition render for him in the summer, where information technology may exist easier to practice a deal given that Salzburg will not exist in the middle of their Champions League or domestic campaign.

What has O’Rourke said virtually Aaronson’s hereafter?
O’Rourke thinks Aaronson’due south future could be at Leeds, with the football journalist telling GIVEMESPORT that the USA international is interested in a move to England.
Speaking to GMS, O’Rourke said:
“It seems the thespian himself would be interested in a motility to the Premier League.”
Did Leeds make the right decision not signing an culling?
Yes. Aaronson seems to be the actor Bielsa really wants, so why settle for a redundancy pick if the attacking midfielder is likely to be available in half-dozen months time?
On pinnacle of that, in terms of the attacking positions behind the striker, Leeds are not in dire demand of a fresh face. Bielsa currently has the likes of Raphinha and Dan James at disposal, with the latter recently grabbing a brace confronting Aston Villa.
The two, wingers by merchandise, play a bit wider than Aaronson, who has mostly been deployed as a No.x this season. But the point is Leeds have expert options in set on overall, so there was no need for them to panic buy terminal month after failing to sign their principal target.
Ultimately, Bielsa should accept enough to get him to the stop of the campaign, though Leeds practice find themselves a scrap too shut to the relegation zone so need to be careful.
