The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Guerreiro
The Latest: Jones’ comments
Jones was speaking to GiveMeSport regarding Leeds and Guerreiro. He questioned whether the player would be keen on a move to Yorkshire and said that a transfer could be ‘difficult’ to complete.
The journalist stated: “Given the position that they’re in right now, you wonder if Guerreiro will be up for it.
“They’re trying to get someone to go into a team that looks like they might be in a relegation scrap, coming from a big club is always difficult. So, I think right now it seems like a difficult one to convince him of in January.”
The Verdict: Spot-on
Labelled an “amazing player” by Dortmund head coach Edin Terzic, Guerreiro is used to playing in the Champions League and has been a regular for them this season, making 18 appearances in all competitions.
Therefore, it does seem to be a highly ambitious move by the Whites, who have used centre-back Pascal Struijk at left-back for the majority of the campaign.
A new left-sided defender would be of use at Elland Road in order to allow Struijk to reprise his favoured central role, but it could still be a surprise if Guerreiro comes to Yorkshire.
