Leeds United are looking forward to making amends for their mistakes in the last term that led them to miss the Championship playoffs and end the season in the seventh position. This time around, the Whites will once again go for a coveted place in the top six in the Championship and fight their way into the top flight in the next season.
The Elland Road club are eyeing a number of players in the summer transfer market to be bought into the club to revamp it for the next season, and have been on the trail of a top class striker to spearhead their attack. One such player is the English striker Ashley Fletcher, who is currently playing for the Premier League club West Ham United.
The English player, who has represented his country at the Under-20 level, has been considered to have a good career in the future. However, he has not been able to show his class in the last term since moving to the London Stadium and might be offloaded in the summer transfer market. This has irked interests from a number of clubs from the Premier League as well as the Championship and Leeds United is right in pole position for bagging the player in the summer.
The 21-year-old had not played many games in the last term having featured in only 20 matches for the Hammers and netting only 1 goal. This has reportedly made the current man in charge at the London Stadium disappointed with the youngster and he is looking to let go of him in the summer transfer market, given that they get a good deal for him.
Apart from Leeds United, fellow Championship clubs Middlesbrough, Reading and Wolverhampton Wanderers have been interested in bagging the player for the next term. However, the Whites are looking to be the frontrunner to bag the player in the summer and strengthen their squad.
The English international is known for his quick feet and ability to take shots from long range as well as close range. The player is also known to be dangerous from set piece situations and also from open play. He can also deliver quality passes into the attacking third to feed his teammates to score goals and keep his team in advantage. The youngster also has good dribbling skills to go with his sharp shooting skills and can become a future star at Leeds United, given the fact that he is nurtured well.
