Leeds United ready to pay fee requested for signing – Player ‘just has to say yes’ to join Whites

Leeds United have ‘entered the scene’ to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Nadiem Amiri, according to Kicker.

Marseille are also in the picture and expressed their interest in him three weeks ago.

The Ligue 1 side have been flirting with the 26-year-old for some time and a deal seemed to be taking shape, but this was before Leeds joined the battle.

The report says Daniel Farke’s side want to secure Amiri’s services. The Bundesliga side have demanded around €6m for the Germany international and the Whites are ‘ready to pay’ this fee.

It’s likely the two clubs could find an agreement if Leeds were to table a €6m bid. Kicker add Amiri ‘just has to say yes’ for the deal to take shape.

As of Wednesday, the website states the player isn’t in favour of joining Leeds since they are in the Championship.

Meanwhile, Marseille haven’t taken the necessary steps to sign him just yet.

Amiri’s contract lasts until 2024. Xabi Alonso’s side could risk seeing him leave for free next summer if they fail to cash in from his sale in this window.

The German scored four goals and registered two assists from 36 games last season.
