Leeds: Whites urged to move for Raphael Guerreiro

Leeds: Whites urged to move for Raphael Guerreiro -Leeds United News

Leeds United should make a move for Borussia Dortmund left-back Raphael Guerreiro as a statement of intent, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Guerreiro shines at Dortmund

The 28-year-old has been a hugely productive player in his position for an extended period of time now, registering 37 goals and 39 assists in 206 appearances for Dortmund.

Guerreiro has been named in Portugal’s squad for the 2022 World Cup and will be hoping to start, while away from international duty, he has been linked with a move to Leeds in recent days.

The Whites are believed to see him as a potential signing at left-back, an area of the pitch where they have been rather light this season.

The Latest: O’Rourke talks up Guerreiro move

Speaking to GiveMeSport, O’Rourke said that Leeds should see Guerreiro as a possible statement signing at Elland Road, with the Portuguese defender out of contract next summer.

The journalist stated:

“It’s a real statement of intent from Leeds if they’re trying to make a move to sign Guerreiro, a player with a brilliant CV. He’s played for some top clubs like Dortmund now in the Champions League, has experience playing for Portugal in tournaments as well.”

The Verdict: Sign him up, Leeds

Guerreiro could be a fantastic prospective signing for Leeds, acting as a massive upgrade on the much-maligned Junior Firpo, and his arrival could end the need for the likes of Pascal Struijk and Stuart Dallas to deputise at left-back.

The Dortmund man’s attacking quality is undeniable – he has two goals in three Champions League starts this season – and at 28, he should still have a good few years left in him at the top level.

Whether or not Leeds manage to entice Guerreiro to Elland Road on a free transfer next summer remains to be seen, but it would be a major coup if it happens, given his abundant experience of major European leagues and tournaments.
