Leeds United are interested in signing Angus Gunn and David Stockdale this summer, as Marcelo Bielsa plans to bring a new goalkeeper to Elland Road.
Bielsa was recently appointed manager of the Yorkshire club, succeeding Paul Heckingbottom after his sacking at the end of last season.
The Argentine arrived at Leeds’ Thorpe Arch training ground on Monday for his first day in charge, and he admitted in his first press conference that he was not planning on making too many signings this summer.
“For the moment we are not intending to bring too many new faces in,” Bielsa said. “From my point of view the club have plenty of players on the books who I believe we should keep. The club generally have 15 players more than we need and we still have four or five different positions where we need to strengthen.”

However, a new goalkeeper is believed to be one of Bielsa’s priorities, and a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post says Leeds are courting Angus Gunn, the Manchester City glovesman, and David Stockdale of Birmingham City.
Stockdale, 32, made 39 appearances for Birmingham last season, having moved to St Andrew’s on a free transfer from Brighton in summer 2017.
England Under-21 international Gunn is currently contracted to Manchester City, but he spent 2017/18 on loan at Leeds’ Championship rivals Norwich, with whom he kept 15 clean sheets in 46 league matches.
Leeds have just two goalkeepers on their books right now, Andy Lonergan and youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell, as Felix Wiedwald left Elland Road for Eintracht Frankfurt of the Bundesliga earlier this month.
