In Focus: Dack would greatly augment Christiansen’s midfield

According to the Daily Star, Leeds United are one of four Championship teams battling for the signature of Bradley Dack from Blackburn Rovers. The 24-year-old only joined Rovers in the summer, and he’s been in marvellous form, having scored 11 goals from midfield.

What’s the story?

Leeds, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, and Cardiff City are all allegedly interested in the services of Bradley Dack, who has been in magnificent form for Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn this season.

The 24-year-old established his reputation of being a goal-scoring midfielder at Gillingham, where he scored a noteworthy total of 38 goals in 135 appearances for the League One outfit. Clearly, Dack has maintained his status at Blackburn, where he’s flaunting an average better than a goal every three games – a mightily impressive return for a midfielder.

What will he bring?

Bradley Dack – who is valued at £900k by transfermarkt.com – is widely considered to be a creative midfielder. While his habit of scoring goals is greatly appreciated, he has displayed his capacity to score a variety of goals, whether they’re spectacular long-range efforts, or intelligent finishes from close-range.

Additionally, he is regarded for his capability to beat opponents through utilising his adroit dribbling ability. Dack is exceedingly competent with either foot, which is further proof of his refined technicality.

Nonetheless, he isn’t devoid of his imperfections. His defensive positioning requires improvement, and at times his decision making is questionable, yet his status as an extremely capable footballer is irrefutable.

Do Leeds need him?

While Leeds have several midfield players who are capable of scoring at their disposal, the potential arrival of Dack would serve to alleviate the pressure that is placed on the likes of Pablo Hernandez and Samuel Saiz to provide the Whites with creative impetus.

His arrival would undoubtedly strengthen Leeds’ midfield options.
