Leeds fans within the Transfer Tavern are now hoping for the campaign to finish so that they can forget about another unsuccessful attempt in trying to reach the Premier League. With the Lilywhites a lot closer to relegation than promotion, something has to change at Elland Road and we believe that new faces need to arrive this summer.
Considering that Leeds were 5th in the Championship just after Christmas, it really has been a fast, drastic decline down the table. A number of reasons are behind this downfall but after discussing with fellow punters, we believe that Leeds desperately need a goalscorer in their ranks to propel them back into the top flight.
After struggling badly with injuries this season, we think that Burnley’s Nahki Wells would be the perfect addition at Elland Road ahead of next season. Leeds fans will be familiar with Wells, remembering vividly when he was playing in the Championship with Huddersfield a few seasons ago. In the 2015/16 season, Wells bagged 17 Championship goals, figures that Leeds are desperate to have in their side.
It’s not like Leeds are short of players but a lack of quality has been obvious during their poor run of form. Given that Nahki Wells is well established as a clinical Championship forward, his cheap price tag of £4.50 million (per Transfermarkt) has the potential to a bargain and a deal that Leeds must comply with.
With Nahki Wells only being able to play in 30 minutes of Premier League football this year, it could be the perfect time to target the 27-year-old considering that Burnley have since replaced him with ex-Leeds talisman Chris Wood.
Bringing him back to Yorkshire would be a statement of intent from the Whites, one they need to set out after a disappointing campaign.
