Leeds United: Jack Harrison linked with Elland Road exit

Leeds United: Jack Harrison linked with Elland Road exit -Leeds United News

Leeds United winger Jack Harrison is the subject of interest from a number of European clubs ahead of a potential exit from Elland Road, according to journalist Ben Jacobs.

The Lowdown: Harrison struggling for goals

The 26-year-old hasn’t always been a key performer for the Whites this season, starting 14 times in the Premier League but arguably flattering to deceive in his performances.

Just one league goal has come Harrison’s way in 16 appearances overall in the current campaign, and that was against Chelsea in August. His influence has arguably diminished with Jesse Marsch at the helm, scoring only five times in 30 appearances under his current boss.

The £50k-per-week Englishman has been linked with a move away from Leeds in recent weeks, and it appears that he has plenty of suitors from the Premier League and abroad.

The Latest: Harrison a wanted man

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jacobs claimed that there is interest in Harrison from several prominent clubs, with an exit from Elland Road perhaps still possible before the end of the month.

The CBS Sports journalist said of the Leeds winger:

“I know that there are clubs who he is still on the radar for. In particular, away from Arsenal, there are even a couple of European teams that are looking as well.

“Atalanta are one of them and I’m also told that Ajax have been keeping tabs on him since the summer.”

The Verdict: Time to leave in the summer?

Harrison has reached a crossroads in his Leeds career, with his contract expiring next year and a feeling that things may have possibly started to grow a little stale in recent months.

His goalscoring record this season is a testament to that, with younger attacking team-mate Crysencio Summerville emerging to score four top-flight goals already in 2022/23.

Raphinha in action for Leeds United

Leeds fans, do you remember how much Raphinha's move to Barcelona was worth?

At this point, Leeds could still earn a hefty sum from selling Harrison, so parting with him during the summer transfer window feels like the most logical option. A January exit would make little sense, weakening Marsch’s squad depth at a crucial point in the campaign when the manager has already had to deal with a plethora of injuries.

The winger had been hailed as ‘absolutely superb‘ by Conor McGilligan earlier in the season, having scored 29 times for the Whites, but Harrison might feel that a change is needed if he is to reinvigorate himself.
