Bielsa knows who he wants at Leeds this summer as Hay reveals developments

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be expecting a couple of new faces to be brought into the club this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa will be keen to make changes to his new squad and a striker is thought to be at the top of his list.

The Whites struggled to find the back of the net on a regular basis last season, which saw them finish in the bottom half of the Championship table.

The Elland Road outfit have been linked with a number of strikers over the course of the last couple of weeks, however, it appears Bielsa has told the Leeds hierarchy who he wants to lead the line ahead of the new campaign.

According to Phil Hay, he has stated on Twitter that Matej Vydra is the main man wanted by the Argentinian boss, whilst the option of Abel Hernandez is proving to be of concern.

The Uruguay international, who is available as a free-agent, is thought to be too costly for the Whites to consider and they have been in two minds about whether to make him an offer or not.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Leeds fans in the Tavern will be desperate to see a prolific striker like Vydra arrive at Elland Road. The Czech Republic international had topped the goalscoring charts in the Championship last season and would boost the confidence of the locals about their promotion efforts.

The news about Hernandez would have come as disappointing to many of the locals in the bar, as he too would have been a smart acquisition, however, the punters will be pleased if just one of them did arrive this summer.
