Leeds United Linked With This 42 Times International Midfielder: Why Bielsa Should Get This Done?

According to the latest reports from Goal, Leeds United are in the race to sign QPR’s midfielder Massimo Luongo. The Australian midfielder is said to be keen on a transfer. Nottingham Forest are also said to be in the mix for his signature.

The midfielder is set to enter into the final year of his contract and Luongo is unlikely to sign a new deal with the London based outfit. Therefore QPR have reluctantly decided to let him leave this summer. The Australian international made 43 appearances last season and contributed with three goals and four assists from central midfield.

Does Leeds United need a midfielder?

Mateusz Klich was a mainstay for the Whites in the middle of the park as he started in every Championship game last season. However, with not many plausible options on the bench, Klich often looked jaded as the season went by. Bielsa deploys a high-intensity brand of football, and the midfield is one of the most hardworking positions on a football pitch. Therefore the club needs to add an option in the middle of the park so that the manager can rotate the players when the games come thick and fast.

Adam Forshaw acted as a backup to both Klich and Kalvin Phillips who is a defensive midfielder. Recently reports are emerging that the club could look to part ways with Forshaw in the summer. Therefore it is more imperative now for the Whites to add a central midfielder to their squad.

Will Luongo be a good signing?

The Australian spent his early years with Tottenham Hotspur. The midfielder has been with QPR since 2015, and he has established himself as an integral member of the first team. Luongo has the experience of playing in over 150 games in the Championship.

The 25-year-old is known for his impressive work rate and strength on the ball. He can do a job on the defensive front as well as on the offensive front. His short passing game and tackling abilities are also worth mentioning, and he can turn out to be an ideal player for Bielsa.

We think that he can do the job of both Klich and Phillips. The Whites should be able to get the better of Nottingham Forest in the transfer market as Leeds United are going to be one of the prime contenders to move to the Premier League next season. The club should be all over the signing of this Australian powerhouse. However, in all honesty, the Whites need better signings to compete properly for the Championship title.
