Leeds United have add another great player after adding Ethan Ampadu to their ranks

Leeds United are in need of further additions after adding Ethan Ampadu  to their ranks. Much of the focus has been on players who could move on from Elland Road this summer but with the start of the campaign now just a matter of weeks away, new signings are needed.

Plenty of players have been linked with the Whites to no avail and now, fresh links with a new talent have emerged.

The Daily Mail claims that Leeds United have been keeping an eye in BSC Young Boys’ 19-year-old centre-back Amenda.

Leeds United have shown a liking for recruiting promising young players before they really burst onto the scene and a move for Amenda could see them repeat that trick. He’s made an impressive breakthrough in Switzerland and before top clubs start sniffing around, the Whites could pull of an eye-catching coup.

Centre-back is one position Leeds definitely need to add to sooner rather than later and Amenda could be a great player to consider. For now though, he’s only been checked on and it remains to be seen whether or not the interest will be advancing any time soon.

 

At 194cm, Amenda is already a physical presence at the back, offering a pace that helps him in recovery as well as when carrying the ball forward from defence. While young and fairly inexperienced at the top, he looks to have the traits that could make him a success with Leeds United if they choose to escalate their interest.

At 194cm, Amenda is already a physical presence at the back, offering a pace that helps him in recovery as well as when carrying the ball forward from defence. While young and fairly inexperienced at the top, he looks to have the traits that could make him a success with Leeds United if they choose to escalate their interest.

That is according to Dutch newspaper Leeuwarder Courant, which is based in Friesland – the home of Heerenveen.

They claim that Coventry have already launched a bid to try and sign Van Ewijk this summer.

The Sky Blues have money to spend after selling star striker Viktor Gyokeres to Sporting.

Mark Robin’s men have dipped into the Dutch market with success before too having landed Gustavo Hamer.

They now want to add Van Ewijk but it’s believed that Leeds are also interested in signing the Dutchman.

Leeds are looking to build a promotion-winning time and may see Van Ewijk as being a key addition.

Van Ewijk was born in Amsterdam but rather than start in the ranks Ajax, his first club was rivals Feyenoord.

Released as a teenager, Van Ewijk moved on to lower league side Excelsior Maassluis for first-team action.

Van Ewijk quickly moved on to ADO Den Haag and excelled there after a loan spell at Cambuur.

The 22-year-old joined Heerenveen in 2021 and has impressed going forward, bagging six goals and three assists in all competitions last season.

A right back with blistering pace, Van Ewijk has been linked with big moves in recent times.

Fulham were interested in January whilst Sporting looked at Van Ewijk to replace Tottenham star Pedro Porro.#
