Leeds United are seemingly going to be busy this summer with both incomings and outgoings.
Adam Forshaw to Fulham is a rumour that has been picking up speed in the past few weeks.
The former Middlesbrough man was a handy player for the Whites last season, but not many tears will be shed if he is allowed to leave this summer.
The Yorkshire club seemingly already have the perfect replacement lined up in the shape of QPR’s Massimo Luongo, and a look at the pair’s stats shows that the Australian may actually bring more to the team than Forshaw ever did.
The above infographic shows that Luongo outshines Leeds’ current man in a number of ways.
Forshaw’s defensive work has often formed the basis of his game, but the Australian’s stats blow his out of the water.
3.1 completed tackles per game out of 4.3 attempted indicates that just over 72% of his challenges are successful. The 27-year-old puts up very similar numbers at just under 71%, but with the QPR man attempting more tackles, it’s easy to see whose defensive contributions are greater.
