    Leeds United are looking to splash the cash again this summer having already spent £25million in the summer window.

    Last summer the Whites spent a seismic sum of £95m, with £79m of that being attributed to just four players in Rodrigo, Raphinha, Diego Llorente and Helder Costa as the Yorkshire-based side finished in the top half on their Premier League return.

    Finishing tenth and entertaining the entirety of Premier League fans with their adventurous gung-ho tactics, players are starting to become attracted to the club under Argentina-born manager Bielsa.

    And, having already added Jack Harrison, Junior Firpo and Kristoffer Klaesson this window for a combined fee of £27m, there is room for many more signings at Elland Road.

    Having been linked with Matheus Cunha for the majority of the window, Leeds are looking for an attacker to compete with the free-scoring front line.

    If Leeds were to sign him, they would have arguably the best young attacking team in the country, with forwards Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood also shining for the youth side – with the duo scoring 23 goals in 34 games last season.

    Sheffield United have made an awful start to life in the Championship, recording just one point from a possible 12.

    They almost doubled their tally at the weekend, but conceded a 94th-minute winner to Huddersfield to leave fans shocked.
