Leeds United Close To A Move For This Swedish Striker: What Will He Add To The Whites?

Leeds United have undergone a vast change in the summer as they have roped in a number of exciting players to shake things up at the Elland Road club. The result is pretty evident as the gaffer Thomas Christiansen has led the team admirably with the intent to end their 14-year wait to get back to the Premier League.

Leeds United are still trying to enhance the current quality of their side and if reports are to be believed, they are very close to securing a deal for Pawel Cibicki of Malmo.

The 23-year-old has long been linked with the Yorkshire giants and could be presented as a Leeds player very shortly. The Whites lost their main man Chris Wood to Burnley recently and have been very determined to reinvest the money properly that they got from the sale of the New Zealand international.

Wood was a pivotal player for them last season as the Whites had almost secured a playoff berth. Replacing him and his unerring accuracy and calmness in front of goal won’t be an easy task by any means.

Leeds also have signed Jay-Roy Grot recently but the 19-year-old is unlikely to play a huge role this season. Leeds have started the season decently and have looked quite balanced.

Christiansen would be looking for some more attackers in a bid to topple their previous season’s performance. Leeds need the stamina to keep their juggernaut rolling in this hectic season and the 23-year-old could be the ideal player to fit in this plan.

The youngster is tipped to be the next big thing in Swedish football and is on the way to earn his first big move of his career. The 23-year-old has given his club’s training a miss in a bid to finalise talks with the Yorkshire giants and if all goes well, he will be set for a Leeds medical.

He would also command a much lesser fee than the other talented young forwards and considering his performance in the last few seasons, he could lead the Yorkshire giants back to their glory days.

The 23-year-old is hugely versatile and can be stationed anywhere across the frontline. He has a unique vision of the goal and is also very lethal when it comes to set piece skills.

He can build a very good partnership with Kemar Roofe this season as both players are pretty fluent in a number of positions and can be used up front or on the flanks.
