Leeds to continue spending with €20m Josko Gvardiol deal

Leeds United are expected to complete the signing of Dinamo Zagreb defender Josko Gvardiol next week, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

Gvardiol, 18, has only made 13 appearances for Dinamo’s first team but is considered an enormous talent in Croatia.

Bayern Munich have had a confirmed interest in Gvardiol, a sign of his potential.

Gvardiol, a left-footed centre-back, should join Leeds for a fee of around €20m.

He will follow another central defender, Germany international Robin Koch, to Elland Road.

Marcelo Bielsa is spending heavily this summer to ensure Leeds’ long awaited return to the Premier League isn’t a short stay.

The Yorkshire club broke their long-standing club record transfer fee to sign Spain striker Rodrigo Moreno last week.

Leeds are also working on a deal for Udinese and Argentina midfielder Rodrigo de Paul.
