It has been a positive month so far, in the world of football. With Bundesliga returning and a host of other small European league announcing their potential return dates, it is only a matter of time before English football resumes. And that could be a boost for Leeds United, who are leading the Championship table at the moment.
The Whites are well on course for a potential return to the Premier League. However, manager Marcelo Bielsa must do some shrewd business if he is to strengthen his side. And in this article, we will talk about three players Leeds United should sign this summer.
Signing Juan Foyth should be a no-brainer for Leeds United. The Tottenham Hotspur star has struggled to make an impact under Jose Mourinho this season, which could significantly improve their chances of signing the young defender.
What makes Foyth such an appealing target for the Whites is his versatility. A centre-back by trade, the Argentine international can also operate as a right-back, where the club lacks some depth, with Luke Ayling being the only option. Also, the Spurs defender can add the technical presence in the Leeds backline, ultimately improving their build-up from the back.
Therefore, the Championship leaders must find a way to sign Foyth this summer. Although it is doubtful whether Tottenham would want to offload him permanently, Leeds should at least look to secure a loan deal.
Leeds United have had a lot of success in the creative department, especially thanks to the consistent performances of wingers Jack Harrison and Helder Costa. Veteran playmaker Pablo Hernandez has also been critical to the club’s chance creation, notably being involved in 12 goals.
However, at the age of 37, the Spaniard is already in the final phase of his career. And that’s where someone like Pascal Gross could be a handy investment. The Brighton & Hove Albion central midfielder is known for his work-rate and tenacity that should tune in well with Marcelo Bielsa’s disciplined style of play.
But more importantly, Gross is an excellent chance creator, who is quite proficient when it comes to set-pieces. He can, therefore, add more tactical options at the disposal of Bielsa.
Last but not least, Leeds United are in desperate need for reinforcements in the offensive unit. Their main striker Patrick Bamford has failed to provide the productivity going forward, and it could cost them dearly in the Premier League.
Dwight Gayle is one such player who can add more depth in Leeds’ attacking armoury. The Newcastle United star has a lot of experience in English football, having notably made 111 appearances in the Premier League. Over the years, he has impressed the onlookers with not only his pace and tenacity but also his productivity in the front of goal. Amid takeover talks, Gayle is facing an uncertain future at Newcastle United, meaning he could be an easy target for Leeds – making him an ideal target for the Whites.
