Many Leeds United fans have looked into the impact shown by Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Helder Costa and questioned if he is worth the £15m permanent transfer fee set to be paid this summer.
Football Insider reported over the weekend that Elland Road boss Marcelo Bielsa is closing in on completing a four-man deal worth £48m to have Costa, Jean-Kevin Augustin, Illan Meslier and Jack Harrison all complete permanent deals ahead of next season.
After losing in the play-off semi-final to Derby County last season, the Whites have bounced back this term in style and sit top of the Championship table as things stand.
A promotion to the Premier League is very much on the cards with Bielsa’s side looking likely to come up against the likes of Mancheter United, Manchester City and Liverpool next term.
Ever the planner, Bielsa is already said to be preparing for the 2020/2021 season and deals to bring in all-four aforementioned players are said to be developing well.
Do you think Helder Costa is worth £15m?
Yes a bargain
No, he has not done enough
The Yorkshire side are already committed to signing loanees Helder Costa and Jean-Kevin Augustin for £15m and £18m, respectively.
Whilst Illan Meslier and Jack Harrison’s are said to have done enough for the Argentine boss to make a permanent move this summer.
26-year-old Costa, who arrived from Wolves, has netted three goals and three assists in 37 Championship games this term.
Reacting to a tweet by Twitter account @AllLeedsHQ, fans gave a mixed opinion on the winger…

Been better than most people think imo but hasn’t quite justified that price tag yet. Scored a few goals and been pretty solid all in all but not set the league alight as you’d expect for that kind of money

Yes if Bielsa wants him then that’s good enough for me and to see the improvement in Jack Harrison over the past year and Helder over this season makes me think he will be a great buy as will Jack
