With the new Premier League season just around the corner, Leeds United like other clubs are beginning to gear up towards an exciting new campaign by bringing in fresh talent to enhance their squad.
On the other side of the fence there are plenty of players who could be considered out-of-favour at their current clubs and are desperate for a move to rekindle their careers.
With that in mind, here’s three out-of-favour players Leeds should look to sign before next season.
When fit, the Liverpool midfielder has been an absolute star for the Reds. Capable of scoring virtually any kind of goal from midfield he has at times added that extra bite Liverpool needed to become Champions. However, after another year of struggle on the sidelines the Liverpool man has fallen down the pecking order and Jurgen Klopp could look to offload him to fund the arrival of new players. Capable of playing centre-mid, he’d solve a transfer conundrum the Whites currently have but his versatility would also make him an ideal signing across the board. The same could be said for the likes of Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri who are also out-of-favour at Liverpool.
According to reports, Leeds have been interested in the Wolves winger for some time and a deal became more likely throughout the season as he found himself out-of-favour at Molineux. With Leeds in need of a winger to provide further depth in the position, Traore could be the ideal signing. With lightning pace and superb strength, he’s a real handful for defences and would offer a nice alternative to Jack Harrison and Raphinha.
The former England international started his career at Elland Road and Victor Orta could do a lot worse than to draft in the midfielder who has faded since helping Manchester City to consecutive Premier League titles. Being back where it all began could rejuvenate him whilst his ability to cover left-back would also make him a very savvy signing.
