Leeds fans are desperate for their club to turn it all around this summer, but which targets should they actually sign?
2017/18 was a long and painful season for Leeds fans, the promise of a positive start quickly died away after Christmas, and rather than looking forward to a playoff push fans were left just waiting for the season to end.
Paul Heckingbottom’s arrival in February had far from the desired effect, though to be fair to the former Barnsley man the current squad simply isn’t good enough.
Whether or not Heckingbottom stays at Elland Road, the club must make some major moves this summer if they truly want to push for the playoffs.
Kyle Bartley is the player fans are most desperate for. It is no coincidence Leeds got their first clean sheet in months with Luke Ayling back in the side, and a back four of Ayling, Bartley, Pontus Jansson and young Tom Pearce would be a marked improvement on this season’s catastrophe.
Links to goalkeepers David Stockdale and Angus Gunn are interesting, particularly given the emergence of young Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
Carpi striker Jerry Mbakogu, branded “the new Drogba” by his agent, has been heavily linked with a move to Elland Road, but fans would much rather invest in the pacey Abel Hernandez, who is out of contract this summer.
In fact, signing a Championship proven goalscorer like Hernandez should be Leeds’ absolute top priority this summer.
So, Leeds fans, who do you want to sign this summer? Let us know by voting in the poll below…
