Leeds: Pundit reacts to Philipp Max speculation

Leeds: Pundit reacts to Philipp Max speculation -Leeds United News

Football Insider pundit Kevin Campbell has reacted to news claiming Leeds United will make a move for PSV Eindhoven defender Philipp Max.

The Lowdown: Max move

The Whites could well be looking to bolster their left-back ranks in January with centre-back Pascal Struijk turning out in the position due to Junior Firpo’s struggles for fitness in recent months.

Recent reports have claimed that Leeds are plotting a move for Max as they look at targets who could slot straight into Jesse Marsch’s first-team squad.

The 29-year-old is under contract with PSV until 2024 and has made 12 appearances for the Dutch side this season.

The Latest: Campbell’s comments

Campbell, who contributes for Sky Sports, was talking to FI regarding Leeds’ reported planned swoop for Max. He appeared to welcome the news, suggesting he could be ‘a good signing’ at Elland Road.

“A bit of experience is what is lacking at Leeds.

“The experience they have seems to be on the treatment table a lot, and that’s not right. You can’t legislate for that, but it’s not right.

“This team is very young. It needs a bit more seasoning to it, and that’s what Philipp Max would bring.

“He’s an international, he’s seen it all in two top leagues – he’d be a good signing.”

The Verdict: Needed

Struijk has coped well at left-back and has been the club’s best-performing player, as per WhoScored, however, his long-term future seems to be at centre-back.

Therefore, bringing in someone like Max, who has plenty of experience, could be just what is required going forward to rival Firpo.

The German can also provide cover in multiple areas and has even turned out as a centre-forward during his career, and it looks as if a transfer will be one to watch in 2023.
