Leeds United should look to add another Chelsea starlet to their ranks in January

Leeds United’s start to the Championship season has been nothing short of superb, with four wins and two draws coming from their opening six games of the campaign.

Marcelo Bielsa has gotten his Whites team playing some superb stuff, and at the moment, they look well and truly like being key players in the race for that all important promotion to the Premier League.

The summer saw a big overhaul at Elland Road, as Bielsa strengthened his team with quality players, including a raid on Chelsea to sign midfielder Lewis Baker and goalkeeper Jamal Blackman.

Those two players have been bit part stars so far, but we at the Transfer Tavern think that the club should raid the Blues again in January for young attacking midfielder Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The exciting attacker has already made an impression on new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, having been included in squads so far under the Italian. However, the likelihood of Hudson-Odoi getting enough minutes to really develop seem slim, and a move to the Championship with a club in the mould of Leeds could well be a shrewd move all around.

Pacey, tricky, and with a keen eye for goal, the Chelsea youngster would no doubt relish the chance to move to Elland Road, and would be an excellent winter capture for the club.

Leeds will need to strike while the iron is hot if they are to win promotion, and adding a player like Hudson-Odoi will only strengthen their push for promotion further.

Leeds fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
