Kemar Roofe has one year left on his contract at Leeds United and is attracting interest from elsewhere.
On August 2nd, Het Nieuwsblad reported Anderlecht are one of the clubs interested in signing the striker and they have already contacted him.
Another Belgian newspaper, Het Belang van Limburg, now explains Vincent Kompany’s side are pushing forward to get the 26-year-old’s transfer over the line.
Roofe’s qualities fit the profile of the player the former Manchester City defender was looking to sign.
Anderlecht offer €6m plus €500,000 in bonuses to the Championship side and are negotiating the method of payment.
It’s claimed the frontman could undergo his medical with the Jupiler Pro League club this weekend.
HBVL reports that with less than a week left of the transfer window in England to close, Anderlecht have stepped up their efforts to sign the player.
This would also give the Whites time to bring in a replacement for Roofe.
