Leeds: Dean Jones reacts to Raphael Guerreiro rumours

Leeds: Dean Jones reacts to Raphael Guerreiro rumours -Leeds United News

Transfer insider Dean Jones has been reacting to Leeds United’s reported interest in Borussia Dortmund left-back Raphael Guerreiro.

The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Guerreiro

Reports earlier this month suggested that the Whites are preparing a contract offer for the 28-year-old, who is set to enter the final six months of his deal with the Bundesliga giants in 2023.

Guerreiro is currently preparing for the World Cup with Portugal and appears to be Leeds’ main transfer target as they look to bolster their left-back ranks in the New Year.

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.
