Leeds United have become the surprise winners of a race to sign Spain Under-19 international winger Ilias Akhomach.
Akhomach, who has so far made two appearances for the FC Barcelona first team, predominantly being used for FC Barcelona B, is extremely highly rated by the Catalan giants, who are reportedly disappointed he has turned down a contract renewal according to SPORT journalist German Bona.
Transfer news: Leeds United win race to sign Barcelona winger
Leeds United have reportedly shaken off interest from Arsenal, Sevilla, and AC Milan to secure the services of Akhomach, who was left on the bench for FC Barcelona B’s 3-0 win at the weekend against SD Logrones.
It is believed Leeds United manager and fellow Spaniard Javi Gracia is a huge fan of the youngster and that belief has been enough to convince the star to make Elland Road his favored destination this summer.
