Leeds United still remain at the top of the Championship table after yesterday’s win over Rotherham United, with a three point lead over Norwich City.
The Yorkshire club have been hugely impressive since Marcelo Bielsa took charge at Elland Road, but there’re still a couple of things that need to happen this month in order to for the Whites to really hammer home their advantage.
Interestingly, Leeds United are reportedly (as per Birmingham Mail) considering making moves for three Fulham players, which includes former Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen.
Indeed, the Norwegian international hasn’t been able to enjoy regular minutes in the Premier League this season, so it comes as no surprise that the London club are trying to offload him.
Leeds could definitely benefit from having the 28-year-old in their side as he played a huge part in the Cottagers’ promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs last season, scoring eight goals and providing nine assists. So, his previous experience of securing promotion to the Premier League could come in handy, with a long way to go.
Of course, the Whites already have the likes of Adam Forshaw, Mateusz Klich and Kalvin Phillips securing regular minutes in the middle of midfield, but Johansen’s technical and passing ability would put at the top of the pile as the perfect kind of replacement for Samu Saiz, who departed earlier on this month.
Elland Road really would have a new hero if Bielsa manages to secure the services of Johansen as he has shown that he can provide an impressive amount of goals and assists. And, the one thing that the 46-cap international can ensure is consistency, which has been a huge issue for some of the Whites’ superstars from last season.
Johansen is the type of player who possesses all the ability to go out and get the job done on the field for the Whites in the most attractive way, with dazzling runs and an incredible dribbling ability making him a joy to watch.
Indeed, having established himself as a hero at Celtic and Fulham, the stage is set for him to repeat the feat at Leeds.
