Bielsa must pin midfield hopes on £1.1m-rated lynchpin by bringing him to Elland Road ASAP

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleasantly surprised at the club’s ambition to bag Marcelo Bielsa as their new manager, a coach who is very highly rated and most definitely has the ability to take Leeds back to the top flight. 

The Lilywhites are hopeful of being ready for a top flight return, should they bring in some new talent to liven things up at Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa has been good everywhere he has previously been so why can’t Leeds profit from his expertise? First they need improvements and a player making waves in the Scottish Premiership is John McGinn, a player our punters recommend Leeds signing.

Valued at £1.1 million on Transfermarkt, McGinn has been in impressive form for Hibernian, scoring 6 goals and assisting 8 in his outings for the side last season. Being a central-midfielder, McGinn is capable going forward and helping his team defensively, something Leeds would be interested in acquiring due to their lack of that ability in their current midfielders.

Having finished 13th last season, Leeds need improvements and Marcelo Bielsa is the type of manager not to mess around in the transfer market, with John McGinn having the potential to be a good signing for the Lilywhites.

The left-footed man only has a year left on his current contract and with other teams already sniffing around his signature, Leeds have to find a way to jump the cue and get their man.

Is John McGinn a player that Leeds need… Let us know!
