Leeds United Showing Interest In Recruiting This Talented Forward: What Will He Bring To Elland Road?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, Sport mentioned that Leeds United are showing interest in recruiting FC Basel forward Arthur Cabral but could face competition in the form of Barcelona in pursuit of the player. It is understood that the Brazilian striker is not a priority target for Barca which could put the Whites in a good position in the race to land him.

Cabral’s Incredible Numbers In Swiss Football This Season

Cabral is having an incredible season in Swiss football as he has been responsible for putting in several match-winning displays for Basel recently. The 23-year-old has banged in 25 goals and grabbed eight assists in 26 matches for the Swiss giants during this campaign on all fronts.

His goal-scoring record speaks for itself, so it is no surprise that the Whites are one of the clubs hoping to secure his signature when the transfer window commences this January or at the end of this campaign. Either way, Marcelo Bielsa can definitely use a prolific goal-getter of Cabral’s quality to add more firepower to his frontline.

What Will Cabral Bring To Leeds United?

Cabral has decent pace in his locker and can make some clever runs with the ball in behind the opponent’s backline. He can get himself into a few dangerous areas in the final third and has already proven his worth as a composed finisher in the attacking end of the field.

Standing at 1.86m, the Brazilian centre-forward has got a great leap in him and can use his strength to win his fair share of aerial duels inside the opposition penalty box. He is a good passer of the ball as well and has what it takes to be an ideal target man for a club like Leeds United.

Patrick Bamford’s serious ankle injury has seen the Whites struggle to pick favourable results in the Premier League. At 23, Cabral has his best years ahead of him, so Bielsa can expect to make the most out of his talents in the coming seasons if he can devise a way to bring him to Elland Road next year.
