Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Championship on Sunday, August 16.

Sunday morning's Championship transfer talk news roundup:

Leeds United 'eye deal for £36m-rated Florentino Luis'

Leeds United are reportedly interested in a summer deal for Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis.

The 20-year-old - thought at one stage to be a target for Manchester City and Manchester United - continues to be linked with a move away from his Portuguese club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Luis only made 18 appearances for Benfica during the recent season, but he was involved in their final three league matches of the campaign.

According to Calciomercato, Leeds are ready to rival AC Milan for the defensive midfielder's signature, although Benfica have placed a €40m (£36m) valuation on the Portugal Under-21 international.

The report claims that Luis's agent Jorge Mendes recently spoke with Eagles boss Jorge Jesus to determine his client's position at the club ahead of next season.

Leeds secured a return to the Premier League for the 2020-21 campaign courtesy of winning the Championship, ultimately finishing 10 points clear of second-placed West Bromwich Albion at the summit.

Newly-promoted trio Leeds, West Brom and Fulham 'join race to sign Ryan Fraser'

Newly-promoted trio Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham have all reportedly joined the race to sign free agent Ryan Fraser.

The 26-year-old is searching for a new club after letting his contract run down at Bournemouth, where he had been for the last seven years.

Fraser also turned down a short-term contract which would have seen him play for the Cherries following the resumption of the Premier League in June after his contract had already expired.

The Scotsman's absence in Eddie Howe's side seemed to have been felt as Bournemouth were relegated after a five-year spell in the top flight.

Despite that, 90min reports that Fraser has been monitored by several Premier League clubs, although both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have pulled themselves out of the race to sign the winger, leaving the door open for a number of other clubs to make their move.

Along with Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Newcastle United, newly-promoted trinity Leeds, West Brom and Fulham are all keen to add Fraser to their squads.

The Scot, who experienced a difficult 2019-20 campaign, starred the season prior with a tally of 14 assists, which was only topped by Chelsea's Eden Hazard in the Premier League.
