Fulham make loan approach for Leeds United’s Brenden Aaronson?

Fulham have reportedly made an approach to sign Brenden Aaronson on loan from Leeds United.
Leeds are bracing themselves for a mass exodus after being relegated from the Premier League last season, bringing an end to their two-year stay in the top flight.

The Yorkshire club, who are currently without a permanent manager, could lose the likes of Tyler Adams and Crysencio Summerville.

Diego Llorente is expected to return to Roma on loan after spending the second half of the 2022-23 campaign with Jose Mourinho’s side.

The central defender could be joined by Leeds teammate Rasmus Kristensen, who is also wanted by the Italian club on a loan deal.

A recent report claimed that Crystal Palace have identified Wilfried Gnonto as a potential replacement for Wilfried Zaha.

There is also said to be interest in Aaronson, who joined Leeds from Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg for £24.7m last summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Fulham have made an approach to take advantage of a loan clause in Aaronson’s Leeds contract.

The report claims that the West London club are yet to meet the full conditions of the relegation clause that allows Aaronson to leave on loan

Fulham boss Marco Silva has identified the 22-year-old as someone who can play the number 10 role for his side next season.

Aaronson, who has earned 29 caps for the USA, made 41 competitive appearances for Leeds last term, contributing two goals and three assists.

The Cottagers are also believed to be weighing up a move for Manchester United’s Fred, who has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

The midfielder started just 12 Premier League games last season, and he is reportedly one of 13 first-team players that have been put up for sale.
