Marsch is preparing for his first full season at the helm, having been appointed as Marcelo Bielsa’s successor in February, and has until September 1 to add reinforcements to his squad.
What’s the latest news involving Leeds’ left-back situation?
According to The Athletic journalist Phil Hay, Leeds are ‘certainly looking at left-backs’ ahead of the new season getting underway.
Hay suggests Marsch has been impressed with Leif Davis during the Whites’ pre-season tour of Australia, which ended with a 1-1 draw against Premier League rivals Crystal Palace, but the American feels another option is needed.
That is because Leeds are set to be without Junior Firpo, who joined in a £13million deal from Barcelona last summer, for the opening stages of the 2022/23 campaign.
Firpo has been ruled out for eight weeks after picking up an injury during the Whites’ pre-season triumph over Championship side Blackpool, meaning he may not be available until September.
What has Dean Jones said about potential incomings?
Jones understands Leeds are looking into tempting left-back reinforcements to the club before the September 1 deadline.
However, the transfer insider believes the Whites are hoping to discover a cut-price option rather than spending big.
As a result, he feels Marsch – along with director of football Victor Orta – is scouring the market as the new campaign nears.
Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “They’re definitely wary of spending too much in that position, so they’ve been sounding out a few options.”
Who have Leeds signed so far this summer?
Leeds’ summer spending spree began with Brenden Aaronson making the £24.7million move from Red Bull Salzburg.
The Whites then returned to the Austrian side to acquire right-back Rasmus Kristensen for a further £10million.
As a result, Leeds have already spent close to £100million with more than a month to go before the summer transfer window slams shut.
