Leeds United are interested in signing VfL Wolfsburg winger Josip Brekalo this summer, according to a fresh report which emerged on Monday.
The Lowdown: Wide depth required
The pair chipped in with a total of 14 goals and 17 assists between them in the league and they should continue to be key men moving forward.
Despite their quality, Marcelo Bielsa may be on the lookout for a new signing who could provide competition in wide areas, in order for the depth in the squad to be improved.
The Latest: Leeds keen on Brekalo signing
The Whites reportedly ‘appreciate’ the 23-year-old as a player and are considering making a move, along with Inter Milan, Fiorentina and Atletico Madrid.
The Verdict: Strong option to sign
Brekalo looks an exciting option for Leeds to bring in, with it once claimed (via Bundesliga official) that he is similar in style to Bayern Munich legend Arjen Robben.
That says a huge amount about the winger’s quality and he could come in and put the pressure on Raphinha and Harrison, ensuring that there is healthy competition for regular playing time.
At 23, he is at a good age where he has plenty of experience – he has won 27 caps for Croatia – but can also improve further, especially under a manager of Marcelo Bielsa’s standing.
In other news, Leeds have been tipped to sign a player who impressed in the Premier League last season. Read more here.
