Leeds United: Marsch can form deadly duo by signing Morgan Gibbs-White

Leeds United have had their fair share of ups and downs since the Yorkshire club made their way back to the Premier League after a 16-year absence.

Last season saw the Whites end the campaign in the top half of the Premier League table with 59 points on the board.

This latest campaign was much more of a difficult one for the club as they flirted with relegation for most of it and only just managed to hang on to their place in the top flight by finishing 17th.

One reason why the Whites struggled this season could be down to the fact that they had to play a lot of their games without Patrick Bamford in the side.

After appearing in all of their league games the season before and scoring 17 goals in the process, the Englishman only featured in nine matches this time around and only completed the full 90 minutes on four occasions.

Having only scored 42 goals in this campaign compared to the 62 they scored throughout the 2020/21 season, it’s safe to say that Bamford was a big miss for them in that regard.

Now with the next season on the horizon, Jesse Marsch will undeniably be hoping that the striker will be able to get his fitness back and play regularly for the side once again.

In terms of potential incoming summer transfers, one player that the Whites have been linked with recently that could give the Leeds boss the chance to form a deadly attacking duo with Bamford is Morgan Gibbs-White.

During his loan spell away from Wolves this season, the midfielder showed how much of a deadly attacking threat he is by racking up 12 goals and ten assists in 37 appearances for Sheffield United.

What month did Marcelo Bielsa's tenure come to an unfortunate end?

Labelled by David McGoldrick as a player that has “the world at his feet,” ended his campaign at Bramall Lane with the joint-highest average for key passes per game (1.6).

This shows just how much of a useful player he could be for Leeds and Bamford if he’s able to deliver the striker with lots of goal-scoring opportunities.

With a reported price tag of £25m, this is a potential deal that Leeds should be all over as the Wolves figure certainly has the attacking talent in him to make sure that the Whites aren’t facing another season-long relegation battle.
