Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Young Boys winger Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu this summer as Marcelo Bielsa eyes up reinforcements for his squad.
The Whites held Manchester United to a goalless draw at Elland Road on Sunday in what was another impressive Premier League result. Bielsa’s men had already taken four points of Manchester City and Liverpool in their two previous matches and are now ninth in the table.
Leeds’ current success doesn’t mean the squad isn’t in need of strengthening this summer, though, with a host of names being linked with moves to Elland Road.
Leeds eye up Ngamaleu move
Brighton, Everton, Leicester City and Rangers are all seen as possible suitors as well, suggesting that there will be a frenetic battle for his signature this summer.
Transfer Tavern take
Bielsa could be looking to improve in the wide positions in the next transfer window, with Raphinha arguably the only top-class winger at the club despite the likes of Jack Harrison and Helder Costa possessing talent.
Ngamaleu could potentially be the ideal player to strengthen the left wing, and his average of 2.3 dribbles per game in the Europa League this season is vastly superior to Harrison’s tally of 1.1 per match in the English top flight, with the 24-year-old playing on the same side where the Young Boys winger is regularly deployed.
The Cameroonian is capable of playing on either flank, which could appeal to Bielsa, but he is more renowned for playing on the left, meaning he and Raphinha could be the first-choice wide options if he manages to oust Harrison from the regular starting XI.
