Leeds United can land their own Richarlison with Armando Broja transfer

Leeds United ended their turbulent 2021/22 Premier League season by managing to avoid the drop and keep their place in the top flight.

With 38 games played, the Whites won nine, drew 11 and lost 18, leaving them in 17th place with 38 points on the board, three points above Burnley who were unable to escape the relegation zone.

Another aspect of Leeds’ latest campaign was the number of goals they managed to score compared to their prior season where they finished in ninth place.

Having found the net 62 times in the 2020/21 season, the Yorkshire club only scored 42 goals last time out.

Now with the summer transfer window open, the Whites have already been busy in terms of adding new players to their ranks in the shape of Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca.

One other figure that the club have been linked with that could help Jesse Marsch’s side get back to becoming a regular goalscoring side again is Armando Broja.

As a product of Chelsea’s youth system, the striker has scored 41 goals in 126 club appearances across senior and youth levels.

During his recent loan spell with Southampton, the 20-year-old found the net nine times in 38 appearances.

In his 32 Premier League appearances for the Saints, Broja racked up 48 shots at goal, highlighting how dangerous he can be at the top of the pitch.

According to FBref, one other recognisable name that is included on a list of similar players to the Chelsea centre-forward is Richarlison.

Taking into account how the Brazilian has scored 48 goals and delivered 18 assists in 173 Premier League appearances, the possibility of landing his own version of the Everton star in the shape of Broja should be an exciting one for Marsch and Leeds.

Labelled as a “dangerous” player by Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl, the Chelsea youngster certainly has what it takes to add a bit of extra firepower to Leeds’ ranks.

With all of this in mind, despite having a rather hefty reported price tag of £58m, securing a move for the striker this summer could be just what the Leeds boss needs to make sure his side aren’t involved in another excruciating relegation battle next time out.
