Noah Okafor approaches the last year of his contract with RB Salzburg, Leeds United is keeping a close eye on the issue

Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Noah Okafor this summer. With the Swiss striker entering the last year of his contract at RB Salzburg, the club is likely to cash in if a fair offer is made.

As the January transfer window progressed, many Premier League teams were repeatedly connected to Noah Okafor. When it came to a move, RB Salzburg decided against it. During the summer transfer window, many Premier League teams showed interest in the attacker. The 22-year-old striker, on the other hand, has improved by remaining with the Austrian club.

A new club may be in the cards for the forward in the next transfer window. Okafor has lately changed agents, which often foreshadows joining a new club and leaving behind the current one’s location.

As the 22-year-old attacker reaches the last year of his contract, Salzburg may decide to sell. With Leeds United allegedly interested in the striker, they cannot afford to let him depart for free a year later. Okafor, if signed, would become the fourth player to join the Austrian club since the summer of 2017.

Leeds signed Rasmus Kristensen, Brenden Aaronson, and Max Wober in the new year. At first, it was thought that Jesse Marsch had drafted and coached these individuals. Nonetheless, despite losing its star American, the club is still interested in Salzburg natives.

Leeds has not made any plans for the summer since their Premier League position is uncertain with two months left in the season. They have been monitoring Okafor closely this season as they search for a new attacker.

In the Champions League, Okafor has scored three times in the group stage to go along with his ten goals and five assists. Leeds will get another promising young player if they decide to get him. The 22-year-old’s exposure to the continent’s premier event may be useful to the club.

Okafor has the potential to join the club’s youthful core as they work to develop a promising future squad. Even though the 22-year-old striker will have other offers, he is guaranteed significant playing time at a team of Leeds United’s calibre or above.
