Leeds fans are absolutely desperate for some reinforcements in midfield, and they’re hoping to hijack Middlesbrough’s move for Mo Besic.
According to The Telegraph’s live transfer blog, Leeds are eyeing a £4.5m move for Besic.
The Bosnian midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Boro, after spending the second half of last season on loan at the Riverside.
The tough tackling 25 year-old scored once in 15 Championship appearances for Tony Pulis’ side, and was a popular figure there thanks to work ethic and feisty tackling.
Leeds are desperate for another central midfielder after the injury to Adam Forshaw, and Everton’s quest to trim their wage bill means Besic certainly is available.
The 25 year-old could be the midfield enforcer Bielsa needs, and would allow the likes of Mateusz Klich to roam forward and grab goals like he did last weekend.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where these fans are absolutely praying this one goes through…
Would be some signing if we pull it off. Mirror also reporting the same.
