Klich could solve Leeds United’s problem in midfield

Leeds United are planning to table an improved second bid for FC Twente midfielder Mateusz Klich, according to Dutch publication Tubantia.

What’s the story?

The Championship club are yet to bring in any new players under new head coach Thomas Christiansen, but it is believed that they are looking to bolster the midfield.

Tubantia claim that the Whites have already had a bid rejected by the Dutch outfit.

It has not put them off making a move, though, as the Championship club are reportedly planning to lodge a fresh figure.

Klich is believed to have expressed a desire to leave FC Twente, despite only being at the club for one season following a free transfer from German club Kaiserlautern.

Is Klich right for Leeds?

When a new manager arrives at a club in between seasons, it is difficult to know what kind of style he will implement until it is displayed during pre-season friendlies.

What is clear is that Leeds need some extra options for the middle of the park, and attacking ones at that.

Striker Chris Wood performed well last season, scoring 27 league goals, but the team were largely reliant on his attacking prowess.

Not enough goals came from midfield, but if Klich makes his way to Elland Road, he could get in on the action as he netted six times and provided four assists last season.
