Leeds United: Marsch can form scary duo by signing Hamed Junior Traore

Leeds United have welcomed several new faces to the Yorkshire club throughout the current summer transfer window.

Back in May, it was revealed that the Whites had secured a five-year deal to sign Brenden Aaronson from RB Salzburg, which was made official at the start of the month.

During his time with the Austrian club, the 21-year-old attacking midfielder ended up scoring 13 goals and delivering 15 assists in 66 appearances, which would have presumably been what caught Leeds’ attention.

This gives an idea as to what the Leeds fans and Jesse Marsch will be hoping to see from the player once their next Premier League season kicks off.

While there is still some time left before the summer window shuts, this could give the Yorkshire club the chance to bring in a player that Marsch can use to form a potentially deadly duo alongside Aaronson.

Last month, the Whites were linked with a transfer move for Sassuolo’s attacking midfielder Hamed Junior Traore.

After scoring 20 goals and supplying 14 assists in 110 games for Empoli across their senior and youth sides, the 22-year-old made his move to Sassuolo back in the 2019 summer transfer window on loan before signing permanently the year after.

Since then, the Ivorian has found the net 18 times and provided eight assists in 100 appearances.

To compare his previous domestic season in Italy with Aaronson’s last campaign with Salzburg, both players started 21 league games and racked up just over 50 shots at goal and delivered a combined total of 62 crosses between them.

This shows how similar the pair are and what sort of attacking and creative talents they could offer Leeds.

What month did Marcelo Bielsa's tenure come to an unfortunate end?

It also backs up why football talent scout, Jacek Kulig hailed Traore’s 2021/22 Serie A campaign as “magnificent.”

Bearing in mind how Sassuolo are reportedly looking to get €30m (£25m) for their young talent this summer, this could be another deal worth making for the Yorkshire club.

Should the Whites end up striking a deal for Traore and adding him to their list of summer recruits, Marsch could then have the opportunity to form what would be a tricky and potentially scary duo between the two players.
