Leeds United’s promotion hasn’t yet been confirmed, but they may already be making plans for life in the top flight.
The Whites sit in the automatic promotion places, but the global pandemic means their fate hasn’t yet been settled.
It still seems likely that Leeds will be in the Premier League next season. That may mean that Jean-Kevin Augustin has a chance to land a permanent move, with Leeds needing another striker.
Patrick Bamford’s mixed season leaves Leeds needing a goalscorer. Now, Galatasaray hitman Mbaye Diagne is again being linked with the club.
Diagne has been linked with Leeds for some time now. Takvim now claim that the Whites are keen again, with Marcelo Bielsa allegedly wanting him for the Premier League.
A Spor note that Galatasaray would want €7million (£6million) for Diagne, having loaned him to Club Brugge this season.
The giant Senegalese striker hit 32 goals in 36 games for Kasimpasa, and then 11 goals in 17 games for Galatasaray. Still, the 28-year-old was sent off to Belgium, where he has bagged four goals in 12 games.
Diagne is likely to be on the move again this summer. Now, he has told The Guardian that he has spoken to Aston Villa winger Trezeguet – his former Kasimpasa teammate. Trezeguet believes Diagne would be perfect for English football, because he’s an ideal target man.
“We talk regularly and he keeps saying I would thrive in England,” Trezeguet. “I’m big and strong, I can hold up the ball and lay it off, I’m good in the air and I’m a finisher. All I know is that, whether at Galatasaray or somewhere else, I am eager to get back playing and scoring again,” he added.
