Leeds United are likely to have a difficult time getting hold of key players in this transfer market this summer, largely due to the impact Coronavirus has had. One of their main targets, Ben White, in particular, faces an uncertain long-term future at Elland Road, with Liverpool also keen on his services.
In this article, we will talk about three players Leeds United must target, should they miss out on the permanent transfer of White this summer.
Three Players Leeds United Should Target As Ben White Alternative
Ben Godfrey will be a viable target for Leeds United, especially with Norwich City tipped to get relegated this season. Although the Canaries have been one of the worst-performing teams in the league so far, the English defender has shown that he can perform at the highest level of football.
Godfrey has been an ever-present figure in the Norwich backline this season. What makes him such an appealing target for Leeds is the technical prowess that allows him to pick passes from deeper areas of the pitch. It could combine well with the much more robust nature of Liam Cooper.
Robin Koch is the only player on this list, who is being actively linked with a move to Leeds United this summer. The SC Freiburg star has emerged as one of the rising stars in the Bundesliga, having flourished under Christian Streich.
Koch is a centre-back by trade and is known for his imposing presence at the back. He is also an excellent reader of the game, which will surely make him an asset in Marcelo Bielsa’s defensive game. Moreover, the German international is capable of featuring as a holding midfielder, thus giving the Leeds manager with more tactical options at his disposal.
Koch is believed to be valued around just €12 million, which is a bargain price for a player of his calibre. However, the Whites could face stiff competition from Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham.
Ethan Ampadu has had a difficult time since joining RB Leipzig on loan last summer. The Welshman has struggled to establish himself as first-team regular for the Bundesliga giants, amassing only three appearances. As a result, he is set to return to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Despite his failures in the Bundesliga, however, Ampadu is undoubtedly one of the most talented young defenders in England at the moment. He is primarily known for his technical prowess, which is combined with a remarkable defensive commitment. And much like Koch, he can also operate as a holding midfielder – making him a viable option for the Whites.
