Leeds United hoping to lure player from Premier League giants to solve problem position

Leeds United have not given up on Angus Gunn despite talk of a switch going quiet in recent weeks, The Yorkshire Post reports.

The Whites remain keen on Gunn as they look to solve their goalkeeper crisis at Elland Road.

Last season, Leeds tried out three goalkeepers with mixed success.

Both senior goalkeepers Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan failed to impress while youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell showed promising signs.

Nonetheless, Leeds will look to get rid of Wiedwald and Lonergan and bring in a new stopper to compete with Peacock-Farrell next season, if he does not complete a proposed £4m switch to Wolves.

Gunn has been mentioned as a target and this report now indicates that the interest has not died down.

Leeds want to sign the 22-year-old on a season-long loan deal after he thoroughly impressed in the Championship with Norwich City last term.

The England under-21 stopper is behind Ederson and Claudio Bravo in Pep Guardiola’s pecking order at Man City and could be handed another loan deal to aid his development.

Other goalkeepers on Leeds’ radar include Birmingham City’s David Stockdale and Manchester United youngster Dean Henderson.

The Verdict

Gunn would be the perfect short-term solution for Leeds, while at the same time giving Peacock-Farrell time to mature and really make the number one spot his own.

If they can keep the Northern Ireland away from Wolves, then Leeds will have two top young goalkeepers on their books for next year.

Gunn is highly-rated as one of the country’s best young keepers so another loan stint would do him good.
