The upcoming summer will see Leeds improving their attacking department.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Leeds United are interested in Eintracht Frankfurt attacking midfielder Daichi Kamada.
The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Eintracht Frankfurt spent 1.6 million euros to sign the Japan international from Sagan Tosu in the summer of 2017. He has one year left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
The attacking midfielder has banged in nine goals and provided three assists in 43 matches this term on all fronts.
He is considered to be one of the best attacking midfielders in Japan. Kamada has also left his mark at the international stage after netting four goals in 16 senior appearances for the Japan national team.
The attacking midfielder has just 12 months remaining on his contract and Eintracht Frankfurt may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier Laegue clubs including Leeds United.
The English club are looking to sign a attacking midfielder and have identified the 25-year-old as potential transfer target.
This approach of signing exciting talent from different parts of the globe can reap rewards for Leeds in the future.
The Japan international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of attacking midfielder Jesse Marsch wants to target in the summer transfer window.
The former Sagan Tosu man can play multiple positions in midfield and attack.
According to the report, “Leeds United are showing strong interest in Eintracht Frankfurt star Daichi Kamada. The 25-year-old netted the winning goal in the Europa League semi-final first leg against West Ham United last week. The creative star is having a very good season in Germany, and is attracting interest from various clubs. According to Football Insider, Leeds sent scouts to watch the second leg of the Europa League game, which Frankfurt won 1-0. Kamada was involved as a left winger for the entirety of the game. Leeds manager Jesse Marsch is an admirer of the attacker.”

Eintracht Frankfurt are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the attacking midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Good signing for Leeds United?
If Kamada is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Leeds United.
Daichi Kamada will be an ideal choice for Marsch as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his attackers.
How strong that interest is and whether Leeds will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
