Leeds United are keen on signing Valerenga goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson this summer.

According to Nettavisen, the Norwegian has caught the attention of the Premier League club with his impressive performances for Valerenga.

Leeds have a concrete interest in the 20-year-old and could come forward with an offer soon.

Leeds need to bring in a quality back-up option for Illan Meslier after the departure of Kiko Casilla to Elche on loan.

They finished ninth in the Premier League last season and are aiming to mount a serious challenge for European qualification this time around.

Klaesson could compete with the Frenchman for the starting berth at Leeds and may prove a superb long-term investment.

The increased competition for places could help both players perform at a higher level and help Leeds kick on next season.

Leeds previously enquired about Klaesson in 2020, and he has remained on their radar since then.

A move to the Premier League could be a tempting proposition for Klaesson and is probably the ideal step up in his career right now.

Working with a top-class coach like Marcelo Bielsa will help him improve, and he is likely to develop faster while playing alongside better players.
