Having missed out on promotion to the Premier League earlier this month, Leeds United will be aiming to bounce back during the 2019/20 campaign.
Yet in order to achieve success in the Championship next season, it is clear that the Whites will need to launch an overhaul of their squad this summer.
With the likes of Vurnon Anita, Samuel Saiz and Eunan O’Kane all facing uncertain futures at Elland Road, boss Marcelo Bielsa may sell them in order to finance the arrival of some new additions during the transfer window.
Whereas losing this trio would not harm Leeds’ chances of competing amongst the very best in the second tier, it is fair to say that by letting Leif Davis leave the club, they will be taking a huge risk.
Although the full-back has only made four appearances for the Whites since joining the Yorkshire-based outfit in 2018 from Morecambe, he clearly has the potential to become a top player in the future.
Yet with Barry Douglas and Ezgjan Alioski ahead of him in the pecking order at Leeds, Davis could find it difficult to force his way into Bielsa’s plans next year and so it may be worth cashing in on him.
According to The Sun, Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the defender as back up for Andy Robertson and could be willing to meet the Whites’ valuation of £4m.
If this is indeed true, Leeds simply have to bite the bullet and cut ties with Davis as they could use the money to bolster their squad in a number of different areas.
What do you think Whites fans? Should Bielsa sell Davis this summer? Or is it important that your club resists the temptation to let the defender leave? Get in touch below.
