Leeds United might be new to the Premier League, but they’re set to splash the cash on a new striker in the coming days.

Spanish forward Rodrigo Moreno, who had a spell in England with Bolton Wanderers as a 19-year-old ten years ago, is set to join Marcelo Bielsa’s side for a fee believed to be in the region €30m.

The fee eclipses the one that the Whites paid West Ham United for Rio Ferdinand way back in 2000, breaking a 20-year transfer record.

Rodrigo has blossomed into one of Spain’s top strikers in recent years and is a regular Spanish international, but finds himself surplus to requirements at Valencia, who are having a large-scale clearout of some of their established stars.

This is good news for Leeds, who have moved quickly to get the forward, who has scored 35 goals in 141 league games for the Spanish side.

Valencia CF confirmed the news on their Twitter page: https://twitter.com/valenciacf/status/1298375058746990592?s=20
