Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has tipped the Whites to sign Chelsea and England striker Tammy Abraham this summer.
The Lowdown: Attacking additions needed
Marcelo Bielsa’s side may have thrived in their first season back in the Premier League, but they cannot afford to rest on their laurels and go backwards.
Leeds need to bring in a number of top-quality new players in the coming months, with attacking reinforcements potentially at the top of Bielsa’s wish-list.
Only Patrick Bamford (16) has got into double figures for goals in the league in 2020/21, possibly highlighting the need for more firepower in that area of the pitch.
The Latest: Mills talks up Abraham signing
“I’m sure Leeds have got their targets, but you need somebody to challenge Bamford.
“Is he going to have another good season? Who knows? He may well do. If he does and you bring in somebody that can’t get into the team, that’s life. Even if he costs a lot of money, if Bamford keeps him out, he keeps him out.
“It raises the standards of everybody and that’s what’s important.
“The big striker that’s available this summer is Tammy Abraham. Where’s Tammy Abraham going to go? Could it be Tottenham? Could it be Leicester City?
“Leeds would be an option. Why not? I would suggest he’s going to be highly sought-after this summer.”
The Verdict: Great deal for all concerned
The £36million-rated Abraham could be a great signing for Leeds, easing the burden on Bamford and also giving him genuine competition.
As Mills touched upon, there is no guarantee that Bamford will enjoy another season as good as this one and the Chelsea man arguably has more pedigree at the top level.
Leeds should certainly consider a bid, especially given Abraham’s age and ability to improve further as the years pass, and help take their squad to the next level.
