Leeds United: Bielsa must consider summer swoop for Harry Wilson

Leeds United: Bielsa must consider summer swoop for Harry Wilson - Championship

Having missed out on promotion to the Premier League earlier this month via a gut-wrenching defeat in the play-offs, Leeds United will now be starting their preparations for yet another year in the second tier of English football.

With Ipswich Town suffering relegation to League One, the Whites are now the longest-serving side in the Championship having played at that level for the previous 15 seasons, a record of which they will want to break in the 2019/20 campaign.

However, if they are to secure a long-awaited return to the top-flight, it is imperative that Marcelo Bielsa is given the financial backing required to allow him to bolster his squad.

Although there is no doubting the fact that Leeds already have a strong core of players at their disposal, they could take their attacking options to new heights by bringing in one of the most exciting talents in Britain this summer.

According to The Sun (as quoted by HITC), the Whites are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool winger Harry Wilson having witnessed first-hand just how destructive he can be in-front of goal.

Currently on loan at Derby, the Wales international played a major role in eliminating the Whites from the play-offs as not only did he score in his side’s 4-2 victory at Elland Road but he also provided an assist for Mason Mount.

An incredible prospect, Wilson has been crucial for the Rams this season as his 20 goal contributions have almost single-handedly dragged them to within a game of promotion to the Premier League.

If Leeds can secure the services of the winger when the transfer window opens in July, it would be somewhat of a coup as it is clear that he has all the ingredients needed to become a fantastic player in the future.

Yet with the Daily Mail reporting that Liverpool value Wilson at £25m, the Whites may have to focus on a loan deal rather than a permanent switch.

What do you think Leeds fans? Would you welcome a move for Wilson this summer? Could he prove to be the spark you need to secure promotion next season? Let us know below.
