LEEDS have taken their summer spending to £45million with the capture of Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca.
The Spaniard, 25, completed a medical yesterday afternoon before putting pen to paper on a four-year contract.
The Whites have moved swiftly to bolster their midfield ranks as they brace themselves for bids from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain for star man Kalvin Phillips.
Upon joining, Roca tweeted: “I’m excited to join [Leeds].
“I can’t wait to start this amazing challenge. I’ll give my best.
RB Leipzig’s Tyler Adams is another option in the middle of the park.
Meanwhile, in the attacking areas, Leeds has been linked with a move for Wolves winger Adama Traore.
The 26-year-old spent the second half of the 2021-22 campaign on loan at Barcelona, but there are fears the Spanish giants may not be able to finance a permanent deal.
As a result, he has reportedly been identified by Jesse Marsch’s side as an affordable target – with £20m muted as the price tag.
Leeds’ transfer chief Victor Orta signed the Spaniard for Middlesbrough from Aston Villa in 2016 and remains a fan.
The club is keen to avoid another tense relegation battle – with Marsch’s men avoiding the drop on the final of last Yves Bissouma transfer in a £25m deal last season.
