Leeds: Whites backed to sign Djordje Mihailovic this summer

Leeds: Whites backed to sign Djordje Mihailovic this summer -Leeds United News

Jesse Marsch could bring CF Montreal midfielder Djordje Mihailovic to Leeds United in the summer transfer window, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Mihailovic impressing in MLS

The 23-year-old American has made a name for himself in MLS, catching the eye with his creativity in the middle of the park.

Mihailovic has registered 16 assists in just 41 appearances for Montreal, not to mention chipping in with five goals for good measure.

Wirth Marsch now in charge at Leeds, it could be that the American looks to bring in some compatriots this summer, with Brenden Aaronson one such player who has been linked with a move to Yorkshire.

The Latest: Journalist talks up American signings

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones claimed that he could easily see American players making their way to Elland Road in the near future, with Mihailovic tipped to join the Whites recently.

The journalist stated: “It wouldn’t surprise me if they signed one from MLS because of the way that the club is being built. But I don’t think they foresee that as a path to success right now.”

The Verdict: Strong summer addition

Mihailovic may be unproven in European football but he has arguably done enough to show that he could be a shrewd potential signing by Marsch in the summer window.

His aforementioned goals and assists tally speaks for itself and he plays in an area of the pitch where Leeds are arguably lacking currently, with Mateusz Klich their most creative midfielder in the Premier League this season with just two assists.

At 23, Mihailovic would also be a player who can mature into a formidable midfielder under Marsch, rather than being a short-term fix.
