Leeds United is looking to sign a 30 million signing, and Jesse Marsch gives an inkling of hope ...

Leeds United is after Charles De Ketelaere, according to Jesse March, the deal isnt all gone, but the Whites are certain he will not join the club.

Raphinha, a star winger for the Whites, has been sold to Barcelona, and they now have a lot of money to spend on the transfer market.

With the addition of another winger to the club, Leeds may now focus on signing a new striker to support Patrick Bamford.

Arnaud Kalimuendo of Paris Saint-Germain is a target, but he appears to be behind De Ketelaere in the Leeds pecking order when it comes to new signings.

Charles De Ketelaere is wanted by Leeds United.

De Ketelaere, who isnt a centre forward but rather a Swiss army knife in the final third, is the top target.

De Ketelaere can play anywhere, up front, off the striker, central midfield, or out wide.

De Ketelaere, 21, is a tall man at 6ft 3in, but has excellent pacing and dribbling ability in tight areas, while his speed and agility are similar to Kevin De Bruyne's.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Leeds are attempting to reach a settlement for weeks now. A 30 million offer is on the table.

Leeds is dealing with a problem because AC Milan is also after De Ketelaere, and they appear to be his top concern.

Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara have arrived in Belgium today to try and close the deal.

Jesse Marsch, Leeds' new manager, has commented on the situation, claiming to the Yorkshire Evening Post that the Whites want De Ketelaere and that the situation isnt done yet.

Leeds will seemingly have a glimmer of hope that a deal can be made until De Ketelaere joins Milan, but Marsch said the club is looking at other possibilities as the Belgian might be traveling elsewhere this summer.

I think it's been well-documented that De Ketelaere was a goal of ours and it's not done yet with him, according to Marsch.

Weve also moved on to other goals in order to weed out which would be the greatest fit if in the end, which is what we believe, he would not be available, he added.
