Skysports.com understands that Leeds are set to win the race to sign Henri Lansbury.
The Arsenal starlet has attracted widespread interest after an impressive loan spell with Watford last season.
He returned to his parent club to make his Premier League debut on the final day of the campaign against Fulham.
Having signed a long-term deal with the Gunners in December, the 19-year-old is regarded as an exciting prospect for the future.
But he does not appear to figure in Arsene Wenger's immediate plans and now looks set to link up with Leeds.
Leeds are looking to strengthen their squad after winning promotion to the Championship as League One runners-up.
Simon Grayson's men have picked up just a point from their opening two games of the season, having lost to Derby and drawn with Nottingham Forest.
