Leeds United were linked with a takeover last month.
Talks on a possible Leeds United takeover have gone quiet. Until the past 24 hours, a report has suggested work is ongoing behind the scenes.
A report on ArabianBusiness.com claims: "Deutsche Bank is helping Qatar raise money to buy a top European football club."
Leeds United are the team most prominently linked, and the only club named in the article as the potential club in question.
The New York Times had reported a few weeks ago that Leeds officials had met with Qatar Sports Investments, who also own Paris Saint-Germain.
Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has since followed several high ranking Qatari business figures on social media.
Leeds have maintained the club is not for sale at present, with Leeds Live suggestion QSI could buy a stake in the club as opposed to a full scale takeover.
There is no timescale given in the latest report as to whether the proposed purchase could take place this summer or even this year.
For now Leeds and manager Marcelo Bielsa must plan on without it, and a more meagre budget.
