Leeds United appear to have stepped up their interest in Arne Slot, with The Independent reporting that they have now made an approach for the Feyenoord manager.

The Whites are continuing their pursuit of Jesse Marsch’s successor. Reports from the Daily Mail this week claimed that Victor Orta was in Madrid for talks with Andoni Iraola.

However, Iraola is not the only name on their radar. And according to AS, the Spaniard has rejected the chance to take over at Elland Road.

Leeds have bounced back quickly however. The Independent reports that the Whites have now made an approach for Slot. It is suggested that he has become the club’s preferred candidate for the role.

Like Iraola, Slot is not a household name to Premier League fans. But he is doing an outstanding job with Feyenoord in the Eredivisie. They currently sit top of the table after 20 games. And they have only lost one game all season.
