Leeds United Keen To Add This Juventus Striking Sensation To The Squad: Can They Pull It Off?

Championship side Leeds United has been linked with a transfer for Juventus striker Moise Kean. The 17-year-old has been on loan at Hellas Verona since the beginning of the season. The Ivory Coast-born star, who opted for Italian citizenship has played 17 games this season for the Italian club and scored two goals in the process.

It is being reported that Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen is interested in securing the services of the Italian although, given the fact that the Italian’s loan deal will end only in summer, it will be complicated for the West Yorkshire outfit to bring him in this January.

As is always the case with the Whites, Leeds United has had a very interesting season so far. Garry Monk’s departure in the summer had left the club and the fans rather upset. The board took a gamble and brought in Spanish manager Thomas Christiansen to replace Monk.

Amidst all the speculation and scepticism regarding Christiansen’s ability to adapt to English football, the Spaniard quietly went about doing his work and imprinting his style of football on the team. Leeds went on to become a fluid, passing side with a lot of quality in possession.

The other championship sides were left chasing Leeds United’s new style of football and the Whites were equally impressive defensively keeping multiple clean sheets. However, within months Leeds’s shortcomings were exposed and resultantly exploited as their slump began.

Questions were asked of the manager and countless solutions started flying into Elland Road free of cost. Christiansen maintained his belief in his system and has managed to recover from their drop in form under him. Leeds are back in the playoff position and are looking well set to maintain their spot come May 2018.

They have furthered their cause within two weeks of the January window by wrapping up deals for players like Laurens De Bock, Yosuke Ideguchi and Aapo Halme. They are now looking to add further firepower up front by bringing in Kean. With Caleb Ekuban facing time on the sidelines and Pierre-Michel Lasogga unable to fire on all cylinders, the bulk of the scoring responsibility has fallen on Kemar Roofe and Christiansen could do with another option up front.

However, should a deal fail to transpire now, Leeds can still keep their interest active and wait till May till the player’s loan expires. The player will be available for a transfer then and Leeds can add him to their list of fresh faces should they qualify for the Premier League.
