The attacking department of the Leeds squad needs quality additions this summer.
The latest reports in England suggest that Leeds United will look to sign PSV winger Noni Madueke.
The England international joined PSV Eindhoven from Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2024.
The winger has banged in 9 goals and provided 8 assists in 27 matches for PSV this term on all fronts.
The 19-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.
Madueke has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18 and Under-21 level, winning 17 caps and scoring 4 goals.
He has been in impressive form for PSV this season and it looks like he caught the eye of many European clubs including Leeds.
Leeds United have earmarked PSV winger Noni Madueke as their target, with Marcelo Bielsa being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player.
The England international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Bielsa wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Noni Madueke has the talent to play many roles in attack.
According to the report, “Leeds United are keen to bring PSV Eindhoven superkid Noni Madueke back to England this summer. England U21 midfielder Madueke, who made his Young Lions debut in last night’s defeat to Portugal, is a Leeds target, says the London Evening Standard. Madueke famously turned down an offer from Manchester United while a free agent to sign with PSV. The midfielder has been superb in the Eredivisie for PSV this season.”

Leeds United have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the England international.
Noni Madueke ideal fit for Leeds United?
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Noni Madueke has all the skillset required to be a success story at Leeds. Therefore, it makes sense for Bielsa to step up his attempts to bring the winger to Premier League side.
Leeds fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
How strong that interest is and whether Leeds United will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
