It’s unknown how serious Leeds United is about signing Swedish custodian Noel Tornqvist right now, but the custodian claims teams are already in contact. Tornqvist has been linked to Leeds United on a number of occasions.
On New Year’s Day, Karl Darlow suffered a dislocated thumb and Illan Meslier was suspended, therefore Kristoffer Klaesson was the one between the sticks. He did not allow a single goal against Birmingham City.
Leeds now has three goalkeepers, and Klaesson is said to be content at Elland Road. However, there is interest in Sweden U21 custodian Tornqvist, who made an impression in 2023 for elite team Mjallby.
The stopper, who has acknowledged that moving to England is a “dream,” has been scouted by Leeds. Leeds is not alone; Genoa and Sassuolo, two Serie A teams, are also interested. Mjallby reportedly demands a £1.75 million payment.
This week, Tornqvist was questioned by the Swedish website Hallandsposten about potential hiring opportunities and his ability to depart Mjallby in January. He made a hint at the exit door and stated that clubs are in contact.
Clubs and agents have contacted Mjällby, but I won’t say anything more about it. Although I adore Mjällby, the players are all eager to leave. If you are going to walk away, this needs to work out. We’ll watch and see.
Noel Tornqvist, a target for Leeds United, says clubs have gotten in touch.
His recent call-up to Sweden’s senior squad for a training camp is evidence that he is a talented goalie. However, Leeds does not require him. Klaesson’s second appearance has confirmed that theory.
He shown that Leeds will be well-cared for in the event that the first two players are out, and he is more than capable of moving up to the second spot in the event that Meslier or Darlow are forced to miss any significant time.
