Leeds United fans should be buzzing with the latest transfer update to emerge from Thorp Arch.
Having ended the Premier League season in superb style – Marcelo Bielsa’s side racked up four wins on the bounce to finish in the top-half of the table – all eyes will be on how the Whites go about strengthening their squad.
And, according to Football Insider, they’re intent on really refreshing the team with a host of additions.
A Leeds source has claimed that not only will the club step up their efforts to sign Club Brugge starlet Noa Lang, but “Marcelo Bielsa has also sanctioned the club to work on deals for a new left-back, specialist central midfield cover for Kalvin Phillips, a back-up goalkeeper and potentially a centre-forward who can compete with Patrick Bamford.”
If Bielsa gets his way, and there should be no reason for him not to given the kind of success he has enjoyed at Elland Road over the years, then Leeds fans could be looking at the arrivals of six new signings this summer.
What will please Whites supporters the most is the areas in which they are reportedly planning on strengthening too.
Bringing in that much-needed cover for England international Kalvin Phillips will no doubt be crucial, especially given how they performed without him in the team – in the nine Premier League games that he missed, they won just twice.
And, adding in a striker to compliment Patrick Bamford will ease the goal-scoring burden on the striker and allow Bielsa to give him a rest here or there to ensure he doesn’t get burned out.
After the success of the last summer transfer window, which saw the likes of Raphinha and Diego Llorente join the club among others, Leeds fans will be relishing the prospect of Bielsa and Victor Orta getting their heads together to find these six new players for their squad.
