Report: Leeds on course for promotion with Bielsa eyeing another exciting swoop

Leeds United fans here in the Tavern won’t want to suffer a similar fate to the last campaign as they had nothing to play for towards the end of the season. 

Marcelo Bielsa will be looking to hit the ground running at Elland Road, with aims of securing promotion to the Premier League in his first season. Indeed, it looks as if the South American is eyeing a transfer swoop, as according to the Northern Echo, Leeds United are interested in Britt Assombalonga.

Indeed, it’s believed that Leeds are interested in bringing Middlesbrough striker Britt Assombalonga to Elland Road.

The Whites continue to search for a striker after failing to ensure consistency in front of goal over the course of the last campaign.

However, it’s understood that Swansea City and Birmingham City are also keen on the Boro forward, so Leeds may have a battle on their hands.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

So, it looks as if Leeds United are on course for promotion to the Premier League, with Britt Assombalonga the latest exciting talent to be linked with a move to Elland Road.

The Middlesbrough striker has displayed his prolific goalscoring ability throughout his footballing career, so supporters won’t have to worry about a lack of goals next season. And, with Leeds strengthening in other areas of the field, luring the 25-year-old to the club would complete their side prior to the new campaign.
