Leeds should look at reuniting Marcelo Bielsa and Fernando Llorente

Leeds are asserting themselves as promotion favourites after continuing their strong form in the league.

Marcelo Biesla’s appointment looks better and better every game Leeds play as they continue to move up in their search for a top flight return.

With their best-equipped squad in years to do so, the Peacocks and fans alike are hopeful that with a bit of luck, they will make their highly anticipated return.

Nevertheless, their squad could still be bolstered with a few sensible additions in the January transfer window.

A striker is becoming a position of need as Leeds are more often than not relying upon Kemar Roofe to score the goals, which he can’t always do.

In that case, plotting a move for unwanted Tottenham man Fernando Llorente would be a great move for all involved.

Llorente, who is valued at £4.5 million on Transfermarkt, reportedly wants to leave Spurs as he struggles to gain minutes on the pitch under Mauricio Pochettino.

The veteran striker has managed a total of just 136 minutes on the pitch this season, as he continues to be frowned upon behind Harry Kane.

He was brought in as a back-up and he served well in that role last season, as he contributed five goals for Spurs.

A big, powerful striker is a handful for most defenders to contain and his attributes would make him ripe for a move to the Championship.

Llorente has previously played under Marcelo Biesla whilst the pair were at Athletic Bilbao and that could persuade both of them to join forces again, in the hope of promoting Leeds into the Premier League.
