Leeds United transfer rumours as ex-White ‘close to’ Premier League transfer

Here are your Leeds United transfer rumours for Wednesday, September 15.

Ex-Leeds youngster to join Watford

Jimiel Chikukwa is poised to join Watford on a free transfer after leaving Leeds United according to the latest reports.

The 18-year-old forward was released by the Whites in the summer after being deemed surplus to requirements at Elland Road after failing to make the grade.

However, Football Insider report that the forward is set to join Watford for free after agreeing a deal at Vicarage Road.

Leeds would not be entitled to any compensation after they decided against offering him a new contract despite his age.

Nandez interest to resurface?

Nahitan Nandez is a name many Leeds fans will recognise from the summer transfer window after he had been heavily linked with a switch from Serie A side Cagliari to Elland Road.

However, after failing to agree on a fee with any of the clubs he was linked with, Nandez finds himself still looking for a move away from Italy according to the latest reports.

Italian outlet Calcio have reported that he is ‘ready to return to the market in January’, a stance that will surely regain the attention of Bielsa and Leeds.

Raphinha to depart?

Another rumour that Leeds fans will not want to hear repeated too much is the continuing speculation linking winger Raphinha with a move to Anfield.

The Independent reported in September that the Brazilian winger had been scouted by Liverpool five years ago when he was playing in his native Brazil, and the Reds have kept tabs on him ever since.

And with his stock continuing to rise with a strong debut Premier League campaign, it could be a long couple of months next July as Liverpool could step up their interest, with the Mirror labelling the winger as the Reds’ ‘next transfer’.
