Marsch: Leeds trying their best for a striker

Jesse Marsch insists Leeds “are trying the best that they can” to bring in a new striker before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Leeds’ pressing need for added firepower was brought into sharp focus after Rodrigo was withdrawn from Tuesday night’s 1-1 home draw against Everton due to a dislocated shoulder.

When asked if Rodrigo’s setback would affect Leeds’ on-going search for the remaining 48 hours of the transfer window, Marsch said: “Not so much, but that’s obviously been a goal of ours since the start of the summer.

“We’ve been active and we’re trying everything we can and we’ll see how it plays out here over the next 24 hours or so.”

Leeds have been linked with Wolves striker Hee-chan Hwang, who played under Marsch during his spells in charge of both Leipzig and Salzburg.

“I know Hee-chan very well,” Marsch said. “I like Hee-chan, he knows our football. He’s on our list, I can tell you that.

“Everybody is trying the best that they can and I can only say thank you to Andrea (Radrizzani), Victor (Orta) and Angus (Kinnear) and everybody.

“We’re trying to find ways to continue to improve our squad, but we have also done a great job and you can see we have a good team.”
