Leeds United Makes Move For This Midfielder Who Has 10 Goals & 14 Assists: Does Bielsa Need Him?

According to the latest reports from Gloucestershire Live, Leeds United have made an approach to secure the services of Forest Green midfielder Reece Brown. The 23-year-old midfielder has managed ten goals and 14 assists in League Two this season, and the club from the Championship have been impressed with his form. Reading and Bristol City are also said to be interested in this in-form Englishman.

Brown started his career with Birmingham City, but he wasn’t deemed good enough for them after a while. The midfielder was signed by Forest Green in 2017 when they got promoted to the League Two.

Since then he has established himself at the club, and his side is currently on the fifth spot on the table. Forest Green are expected to make it to the playoffs. Therefore, their dream of moving to the League One is still alive.

Why Leeds United need a midfielder?

The Whites have had a lousy fortnight in the Championship as they lost two consecutive games which has more or less dashed their hopes of moving to the Premier League through the automatic promotion spots. However, the team must be credited for the way they have fought throughout the season with a razor-thin squad.

Mateusz Klich has played in the central midfield position for the most parts this season, but the Polish midfielder has looked jaded on occasions. Marcelo Bielsa hasn’t been able to rotate much as he didn’t have many options. Apart from Klich, he only had Adam Forshaw.

Forshaw also acts as a backup to Kalvin Phillips in the defensive midfield role. Therefore the club are too stretched in midfield, and that is one position where rotation sometime is necessary given the amount of running they do in a game particularly in Bielsa’s high-intensity system.

What now for Leeds United?

23-year-old Brown will add depth and competition for places, and his attacking returns from midfield has been terrific this season. It remains to be seen whether he would be able to come up with the goods if he moves to the higher divisions. Leeds United are not yet sure of which division they might end up playing in the next season. If they move to the Premier League, they will need more proven options.

It has been indicated that if Forest Green can win promotion to League One, Brown would stick them. The Whites desperately need to add options, and Brown can be a decent addition in midfield. However, he might take some time to settle in at Elland Road as he has been plying his trade in the English fourth tier.
