Leeds United Want This Stuttgart Play-Maker: What Will He Add To Their Team?

Garry Monk’s magic has worked pretty well thus far at Leeds United. After so many years, the fallen giants of English football are truly in the race for promotion once again. Monk has proven to be the man capable enough of waking up the sleeping giant namely Leeds United and if things go their way, the Whites could very well see themselves back in the Premier League next campaign.

Leeds are in the perfect position to show their ambition. As per a recent report from The Yorkshire Post, the Whites are leading the race for Alexandru Maxim from VFB Stuttgart. Yes, you heard it right. They are leading the chase for Alexandru Maxim, a highly-reputed international player who was once linked with the bigger clubs in England.

Maxim’s stock has fallen a lot now considering that he is plying his trade in the second division in Germany. So, a move to Leeds does seem realistic now. A few years back, almost every mid-table club and a few major clubs wanted him but times have changed. This will be a brilliant move for the Whites and could spur them to the top two places in the Championship by the end of the season.

Maxim is predominantly a number ten but can also ply his trade on either flank. There are not many players in the world who are capable of using both feet but Maxim is one of the rarer breeds of footballers. Blessed with amazing vision and technique, the Romanian international can add a lot to Leeds.

The Whites do not have a natural number ten at their disposal. Pablo Hernandez has played in a number ten role in most games this season for Monk’s side but he is naturally a wide player and might have to shift back to the flanks if Maxim moves to Elland Road. Kemar Roofe has also been used as a number ten is a few games but he is also an agile winger and would love to move back to the left flank.

Maxim has the quality to make a big difference at Elland Road. He is an experienced player at both club level and international level and such a player moving to Leeds would be a great advertisement for the club who are progressing well under Garry Monk. Besides, under the new ownership of Radrizzani, they can dream a bit bigger now.
