Leeds fans want Fernando Forestieri signed this summer

Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to tell their club to sign Sheffield Wednesday forward Fernando Forestieri this summer.

The Yorkshire outfit are preparing for yet another season in the Championship following their play-off semi-final heartbreak against Derby County in midweek, but it seems as though the Elland Road faithful are already looking ahead to next term and what their team needs to secure promotion.

It is fair to say that the Whites often missed that creative player in behind the striker following the departure of Samu Saiz during the January transfer window, and the versatile Forestieri would certainly fill the void given he can play in the No.10 role or on either flank.

Having spent much of the campaign out through injury, the Italian returned for the Owls towards the end of the campaign and netted twice in their final four league fixtures – including a stunning long-range strike against champions Norwich City.

Leeds supporters clearly feel that the 29-year-old, who only has a year remaining on his contract with Wednesday, could do a job for Marcelo Bielsa given their comments on social media, with one saying “he’d love to play under Bielsa”, and another individual saying “he’d my number one target”.
