Leeds United are set to challenge Tottenham in their quest to sign Bournemouth goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, this summer.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this month that Spurs were interested in bringing Ramsdale to North London when the transfer market reopens in the summer, but faced competition from Chelsea for his signature.
Ramsdale has been one of the few bright sparks in a disappointing season for the Cherries and the report claimed that Jose Mourinho viewed the 21-year-old as Hugo Lloris’ potential long-term successor.
Football Insider now claims that Leeds United have become the latest side to enter the race for Ramsdale as Marcelo Bielsa looks to bring in a new goalkeeper due to Kiko Casilla’s lengthy suspension.
It is suggested that the Championship club have been tracking Ramsdale for a number of years and will make a move for him in the summer if they manage to win promotion to the Premier League.

I have been impressed with what I’ve seen of Ramsdale this season and believe the signing makes sense for us for a couple of reasons. He will immediately be an upgrade on Paulo Gazzaniga and serve as an able deputy to Lloris, while also potentially having the talent to develop into the Frenchman’s long-term successor at the club.
