He claims that Adama Traore of Wolves, Nicolas Pepe of Arsenal, Dwight McNeil and Maxwel Cornet of Burnley, Ismaila Sarr of Watford, and others are all being considered.
It appears the team is considering their alternatives because Moussa Diaby has vowed to stay at Bayer Leverkusen this summer and Leeds values Jack Harrison at a significant premium above what we’re ready to pay.

Following a £72 million transfer from Lille, Pepe has achieved the heights that some had predicted, but the Ivorian has showed flashes of skill over the course of his three seasons and may yet have much to prove.
Traore would divide opinion since he lacks end product and is unplayable on occasion. According to some rumours, the 26-year-old Spaniard, who spent a season on loan at Barcelona, might be had for under £10 million.
In a mediocre Burnley team, McNeil, who is only 22 years old, has displayed glimpses of talent, while Cornet has displayed bursts of explosive play, scoring nine goals in 26 games since moving from Lyon.
Following Watford’s relegation, Sarr is another person who could be seeking for a new place to live. It’s understandable why Howe could be eyeing the Senegalese star given the 24-year-plenty old’s of speed and opportunity for growth.
