He said: “The Whites are hoping to achieve one of their goals [striker and left-back] walked through the door ahead of the Premier League opener against Wolves on Saturday August 6, but are currently tight-lipped over the identities of the targets and any deals being negotiated have yet to be disclosed.
So far in the summer transfer window, Leeds have been busier than most of their Premier League colleagues in terms of number of offers they were involved.

Good news for Mars
Now that Smyth has shared this news about the club’s hopes of a new face to arrive, in addition to the new players who have already signed, ahead of the start of their next Premier League season, it will surely have Jesse Marsch and many fans of Leeds. buzzing.
Bearing in mind that current Leeds left-back Junior Firpo is out of action by wound and is likely to miss the first few weeks of the season, it’s easy to see why the club would want to add a new player to the position as soon as they can.
As for a new striker, the fact that Patrick Bamford has many wound problems sidelined him for most of last season suggest a new centre-forward would not only provide the Englishman with a boost in that position but also add some competition for the spot.
What position do Leeds need the most to sign a new player?
Going forward, if Leeds can wrap up their summer transfer business as soon as possible, it will give them an advantage in terms of seeing all their new players settle in quickly and get used to playing in the Premier League.
