According to a report in French newspaper L’Equipe, Leeds United have made an offer for Guingamp midfielder Yannis Salibur.

Leeds are looking to strengthen their squad this summer, as they aim to break into the top six next term.

It is believed that Salibur is on new manager Garry Monk’s transfer wishlist, as he looks to bolster his midfield options.

Salibur made 33 appearances for Guingamp last season in Ligue 2, and he managed to find the net on nine occasions.

Leeds are now reportedly interested in the 25-year-old, who they believe would enhance the quality of their midfield.

Leeds are set to offload Casper Sloth, meaning that there could be a place for another midfielder to join the Yorkshire side.

Salibur has never played in English football before, but he does have some pedigree in France - and he also has been capped up to under-19 level for his country.

Leeds have made two signings throughout the summer transfer window so far - with Kyle Bartley and Marcus Antonsson both joining.
