Leeds United brace for new offer for Harrison after Maddison offer rejected

Leeds United need to be prepared as Newcastle United could submit a new offer for winger Jack Harrison in the coming weeks.

The Magpies are looking to strengthen their attacking midfield areas and they have been linked with a few players at the same time.

According to a report from Sky Sports (August 2), the Magpies have failed in their bid to sign James Maddison from Leicester City, after their second offer of over £40million was rejected.

Leicester City are eyeing a fee of around £60million and the Magpies are unlikely to pay more for him. In that case, they could make another move for Harrison after their opening offer was rejected.

Foot Mercato reported on August 1 that the Magpies submitted a bid of around £33m for the winger but it was turned down.

Leeds are seeking an offer in the region of £40m for the 25-year-old winger who has established himself as a key player for Los Blancos over recent seasons.

Now Harrison’s asking price is well within Newcastle’s transfer budget, and they could improve their offer to entice Leeds to sell their prized asset.

Having lost both Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, Leeds are unlikely to lose another key player this summer, but things could change if there is a good offer on the table.

Leeds are reportedly looking to add another winger to their ranks [FootMercato], with Watford’s Ismaïla Sarr being targeted. If Harrison leaves, the club could be forced to add more players to its ranks.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites now want to sign the striker with a rival ready to kick off a major £30m+ transfer battle.
