Leeds: Whites eye up Borna Sosa move - Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United are interested in signing Stuttgart defender Borna Sosa this summer as their search for a new left-back continues.

The Lowdown: Left-back needed

With Ezgjan Alioski almost certain to depart Elland Road at the end of the season, the Whites will suddenly have a glaring lack of depth at left-back.

Leeds have been linked with a host of options in that area, but no genuine front-runner has yet emerged to fill the Alioski-shaped void.

The Latest: Sosa linked with Leeds move

One player who has been thrown into the mix is Stuttgart regular Sosa, who has made 24 Bundesliga appearances this season, with his average of 1.3 interceptions per game superior to Alioski’s tally (0.6) in the Premier League.

According to Kicker [via Sport Witness], Leeds are showing ‘concrete interest’ in signing the 23-year-old this summer, although it isn’t stated whether or not a bid has been made.

The Verdict: Another strong option

Sosa seems another good alternative to Alioski, being on the verge of making his debut for Croatia and impressing for Stuttgart, registering a hugely impressive nine assists in the Bundesliga.

That suggests that he has the attacking quality to be a success under Bielsa, while also proving to be a solid defender, making an average of 2.7 clearances per match in 2020/21.

It remains to be seen if Sosa will be viewed as the best possible left-back to come in, but there is plenty to point towards him being a shrewd acquisition if he is in Bielsa’s squad by the start of next season.
