Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Slavia Prague sensation Abdallah Sima, in what could be an exciting piece of business.
The Lowdown: Sima shines for Slavia Prague
The 19-year-old is seen as a hugely talented young attacking player, catching the eye for the Czech giants this season.
The Latest: Leeds keen on signing Sima
According to Football Insider, the Elland Road outfit are in the mix to sign the teenager this summer, following his ‘remarkable rise’ during 2020/21.
It is stated that a number of Premier League clubs are showing an interest in Sima, however, suggesting it won’t be easy to acquire his signature.
Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham are the top-flight teams mentioned in the report.
The Verdict: Worth a punt?
It is vital that Leeds make reinforcements in the summer, ensuring they don’t sit still and fail to kick on from an impressive campaign.
At 19, Sima may still be raw, but in Marcelo Bielsa, he would have a hugely experienced, respected manager who knows how to nurture young talent – just look at how Patrick Bamford has taken to top flight football this term.
The list of clubs he is being linked with speaks volumes about his potential, so Leeds should consider taking a punt on the Czech starlet, especially considering how prolific he already looks in front of goal.
He could play second fiddle to the likes of Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo to begin with, potentially usurping them over time.
In other news, Leeds have been linked with another winger, as Bielsa looks to make a summer addition in that area. Find out who it is here.
