According to the reports from Turkish media outlet Haberler, Emre Mor wants a move to Leeds United. Reports last week had emerged that Leeds United and Brentford were interested in the Turkish attacker. The latest news conveys that even Mor now wants a move to Elland Road.

Mor is contracted with Celta Vigo, but he is currently on loan with Turkish heavyweights Galatasaray. The report mentions that Mor wants a move to the Yorkshire club, but the Whites are not that convinced. The forward has continued to struggle even at Galatasaray this season after failing to establish himself in the La Liga.

The Turkish winger cum forward was seen as a significant talent when he burst onto the scene with Borussia Dortmund. He moved to Celta Vigo in search of greener pastures, but he started just four games in the 2017-18 campaign. Even next season, he struggled for the Spanish club, and this time, Celta decided to send him on loan.

However, he is yet to make a meaningful contribution at Galatasaray. Mor has only had three starts for them, and he is yet to score or assist.

The 22-year-old is a 15 time Turkey international, but his career has been on a downward trajectory after being seen as a wonderkid initially. The player has had issues with the coaching staff in the past and he had a fall out with Thomas Tuchel when he was at Dortmund. Even at Celta Vigo, he continued to create unrest in the squad.

What is Mor known for?

Leeds United require a forward in this window and Mor can be a versatile option as he can play in various positions across the front three. He has a natural flair to his game, and he can go past defenders using his sublime skills and trickery. He also has the quick burst of speed which can keep the opposition defenders on edge.

Why would Mor be a misfit?

However, he is not known as someone who has a high work rate. Moreover, Bielsa has created a close-knit squad with every player playing for each other. Mor is unlikely to fit in that philosophy, and he can be a disruptive force in the dressing room. The 22-year-old can create a few magic moments out of nothing, but for Bielsa, discipline and his philosophy are of utmost importance.

Mor is not known to have a reasonable work rate, and hence we believe that he would be a misfit at Elland Road. Therefore Bielsa should avoid moving in for him in this window.
