Leeds United are yet to finalise on their transfer targets, with the club’s plans hinging on whether they earn promotion to the Premier League.

However, as per the report, the Whites are likely to explore the free agent and the loan market, as finances have taken a huge hit due to the coronavirus crisis. This has made Erras an attractive prospect for the Whites.
