A huge update has emerged on Leeds United‘s chances of landing Morgan Gibbs-White in the summer transfer window…
According to The Guardian, the Wolves attacking midfielder would prefer to remain at his current club instead of sealing an exit ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
The report claims that Nottingham Forest and Everton are also keen on the £25m-rated gem, who spent last season on loan at Sheffield United.
Leeds have been touted with interest in the England youth international this summer as Victor Orta looks to improve Jesse Marsch’s squad.
This update will surely leave the Whites supporters feeling gutted as Gibbs-White has the potential to be an excellent signing for the club.
Marsch’s team narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League last season and have lost Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips to Barcelona and Manchester City respectively. Although, they have bolstered their team with a host of new signings; Brenden Aaronson, Luis Sinisterra, Tyler Adams, Marc Roca, Darko Gyabi, and Rasmus Kristensen.
Gibbs-White would be another exciting addition to the squad after an impressive campaign on loan at Bramall Lane in the Championship last term.
He caught the eye with a string of impressive performances in the second tier. The gem racked up 35 appearances and averaged a superb SofaScore rating of 7.16, which shows that he consistently delivered strong displays for the Blades, despite them falling short of what was required in the play-offs to reach the top-flight.
Gibbs-White showcased his ability in the final third as he chipped in with 11 goals and nine assists from an attacking midfield position. He created a whopping 16 ‘big chances’ for his teammates and made 1.6 key passes per game as he proved that he can score and assist goals on a regular basis.
At the age of 22, he also has the potential to develop as he gains more experience. He has plenty of time left ahead of him to improve and hone his skills at the top level, which means that he could be an exceptional signing both in terms of what he would offer in the immediate term and in the future.
Therefore, Leeds supporters will be gutted that the player has decided that he wants to remain at Wolves, as his preference suggests that he will not be arriving at Elland Road before the end of August.
