Leeds United’s Move For Dazzler Hijacked By European Giants: 3 Alternatives Including This Ligue 2 Ace!

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

CSKA Moscow are currently leading the chase to sign former Hull City striker Abel Hernandez this summer. According to recent reports, the Russian giants are planning to move in for the Uruguayan centre-forward during this summer transfer period.

The 27-year-old found the back of the net 8 times in 10 games for the Tigers last season. He rejected a deal at the KCOM Stadium bringing his four-year stint with the club to an end this summer. Some sources are now claiming that the Uruguayan talent will earn €3m a year in the Russian capital should he opt to join the club, which will be a big blow for Leeds United, who were also reportedly interested in landing the South American ace.

With the Peacocks set to miss out on Hernandez, let’s take a look at three alternatives for Bielsa to consider in this off-season.

Ross McCormack

If the Yorkshire giants are looking to recruit someone who can be an immediate solution, Bielsa can definitely consider making an offer for the services of this 31-year-old Scottish forward. The Championship sensation completed a loan spell at A-League’s Melbourne City at the start of this year and returned to Aston Villa back in January. He had put in some match-winning performances for the Australian outfit and had registered 14 goals in 19 matches during the previous A-League campaign. McCormack also has loads of experience in English and Scottish football which makes him a perfect candidate to take up the goal-scoring duties at the Elland Road next term.

Thierry Ambrose

The Dutch Eredivisie forward was in scintillating form for NAC Breda last season and is exactly the kind of player that Marcelo Bielsa’s team could benefit from. The French striker had featured in 31 matches for Breda last season, finding the back of the net 10 times while providing 6 assists across all competitions. At the tender age of 21, Ambrose has incredible potential to grow into a future world-beater in English football which is why the Peacocks should opt for his services.

Jordan Siebatcheu

If the West Yorkshire side are looking to establish a more long-term approach, they could choose to snap up this talented Washington-born youngster. The Stade Reims sensation had lit up the Ligue 2 with some dazzling displays during the course of last season. The 22-year-old frontman had made 36 appearances for the French side last term, scoring 17 goals while providing 7 assists in all competitions. Siebatcheu has a promising future which Bielsa’s team could look to capitalise on, in the coming years.
