Everton, Ipswich Town and Leicester City 'express interest' in 'top' Leeds United transfer target

There is a strong possibility Leeds United boss Daniel Farke will look to bolster his attacking options this summer. Injuries limited Patrick Bamford's game time at the back end of the 2023/24 campaign while Joel Piroe found consistency hard to come by in the run-in. Spanish Under-21 international Mateo Joseph is a talented prospect but very much remains a work in progress.

Could Sheffield United's Daniel Jebbison be the long term solution to their No 9 dilemma? The 20-year-old is one of the Whites' "top transfer targets", according to HITC.

Jebbison's Blades deal expires at the end of the month. He has been offered a new contract but has yet to commit his future to United's Yorkshire rivals.

A former England youth international who also qualifies for Canada, Jebbison missed most of the 2023/24 season due to a blood clot. He returned to action after their Premier League fate had already been sealed.

The HITC report claims Jebbison has "generated offers" from around England and Europe, but that the Whites are hopeful of securing his services. Everton, Brighton and Hove Albion, Ipswich Town and Leicester City are said to be among the clubs who have made moves to try and sign Jebbison. Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Monaco have also reportedly expressed an interest in his services.

It is believed that United technical director Gretar Steinsson, who previously spotted Jebbison during his time at Everton, is keen to bring in Jebbison as the club want more physicality on the front line.

When quizzed on Jebbison’s future back in March, Sheffield United’s CEO Stephen Bettis said: “We are still working on it, we are having positive conversations about it at the minute.”
