LUFC in the transfer of Brereton Diaz
After losing their last Premier League game 3-2 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Leeds United have won just three of their 16 league appearances so far this season, drawing seven and losing six along the way , leaving the Whites in 15th place in the championship. table with 16 points before Sunday’s league games.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have also managed to score just 17 goals this season, which is a big drop from last season when they managed to score 30 at this point.
With that in mind, it looks like the Yorkshire club may look to the January transfer window to bring in someone who could revitalize their attacking power.
What are the news?
According to a recent report from The Sun by journalist Alan Nixon, Leeds are interested in signing Blackburn Rovers forward Ben Brereton Diaz.
The report also claims the Championship club would want a Â£ 25million transfer fee for the Chile international, which could apparently put off some clubs who might want to sign him, like Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion as well. than La Liga. Seville.
Brereton Diaz initially joined Blackburn on a loan deal from Nottingham Forest in the 2018 summer transfer window before signing a permanent deal in January 2019.
In total, Brereton Diaz has made 111 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring 26 goals and providing 10 assists along the way.
Keep Bielsa at Elland Road
Described as “extraordinary talent” by Rovers manager Tony Mowbray, the 22-year-old, who is currently valued at Â£ 9million according to Transfermarkt, has vindicated his manager throughout this season so far in accumulating a total of 17 goals. in 22 appearances in the championship.
It shows why people like Leeds, Brighton and Sevilla are interested in signing the striker.
Would you take Ben Brereton Diaz to Leeds in January?
Patrick Bamford having struggled with injuries this season and the fact that Rodrigo and Tyler Roberts only managed to score three league goals between them suggests Leeds could do with the addition of someone with Brereton Diaz’s ability.
This has been a huge problem for the Elland Road team, with Bielsa coming under serious pressure not to have her job as safe as before. The worst-case scenario would be relegation, but by signing the Blackburn forward he could help keep the Argentinian in Yorkshire by securing his Premier League status thanks to his immense strike rate in front of goal.
That said, given how important he has been to Blackburn this season and labeled as their “catalyst” for promotion by Colin Hendry, it would likely be reluctant to let him go midway through the season.
