Premier League outfit Leeds United are among the clubs keeping close tabs on AFC Wimbledon whizkid Jack Rudoni.

If a report from TEAMtalk is to be believed, Leeds United are closely monitoring the development of Jack Rudoni. The young midfielder currently plies his trade with AFC Wimbledon, but he has become one of the most sought-after talents in the lower level of English football, thanks to his exploits in League One.

A central midfielder by trade, Rudoni has been a part of Wimbledon’s senior team since 2019. In recent years, the youngster has become an ever-present figure in the club’s midfield unit, notably racking up 39 league appearances last season, helping the club narrowly survive relegation.

This time around, the 20-year-old has elevated his performances to a whole new level, scoring seven goals and bagging three assists in just 26 matches. Although Wimbledon are once again involved in a relegation scrap, the midfielder has been a standout performer in the team, impressing onlookers with his attacking mentality.

Rudoni’s performances have not gone unnoticed either, with a myriad of English clubs interested in his services. Leeds United are among the teams closely monitoring his progress at Wimbledon, with an eye towards a potential move after the end of the season.

The Whites have a crucial summer ahead of them amid uncertainties surrounding the future of Kalvin Phillips. West Ham have recently tested the waters with a £55 million bid for Phillips, which was swiftly knocked back. However, the Yorkshire outfit are bracing themselves for far more tempting offers from bigger clubs in the summer.

In addition to the uncertain future of Phillips, Leeds United have also been widely criticised for their lack of depth in midfield. In an attempt to solve this issue, the club have been linked with a move for Riqui Puig of Barcelona, although they are set to face stiff competition from AC Milan.

While someone like Jack Rudoni is far from a finished product and cannot be considered a reliable first-team option, the youngster could be an interesting investment for the club. The player has shown a lot of potential in League One, while his attacking style of play should fit in nicely with Marcelo Bielsa’s tactical philosophy, making him a logical option for Leeds.

However, it remains to be seen whether Leeds United can fend off interest from league rivals Wolves in the pursuit of the AFC Wimbledon starlet, who seems prepared to take the next step in his career in the summer.
