If Leeds win promotion, signing this Russian star would be a superb piece of business

Leeds United are on the cusp of finding their way back into the Premier League after a superb season thus far under Marcelo Bielsa.

The Whites have been playing some superb football under the Argentinian, and with the second half of the season firmly under way, they remain top of the Championship table.

Their hiatus from the Premier League has been far too long in the eyes of many a pundit and fan, and their return would no doubt be greeted with open arms by many, with their passionate fan base and expansive style of football under Bielsa likely to have a big impact in the Premier League.

However, Leeds should be under no illusions that they need to strengthen the ranks if they do win promotion, and one man we think they should be looking to sign is Russian midfielder Alan Dzagoev.

The midfielder is set to see his contract expire in the summer, and at 28, he could be the perfect blend of experience and quality that Leeds need to add to their squad should they find themselves in the top flight.

Dzagoev is highly thought of on the continent and has impressed onlookers in England at times too with her showings in World Cups and European Championships.

Capable of playing across the entire midfield and venturing forward, Dzagoev would add a touch of class and quality to a Leeds side which would no doubt need it if promoted.

Leeds fans, what do you think? Is this the sort of player you’d like to see at Elland Road? Let us know!
