LEEDS IN TALKS OVER LIVERPOOL PLAYER
Leeds United are in talks to sign Liverpool attacking midfielder Harry Wilson this summer. The interest of Leeds United in the Welsh international was confirmed by journalist Mercado Ingles via the Daily Mirror. It was revealed that Leeds United have opened talks with the Reds in a bid to sign Wilson.
Leeds United surprised a lot of people under manager Marcelo Bielsa in their first season back in the Premier League after they had won the English Championship. Bielsa led the club to ninth place and was rewarded with a nomination for the Manager of the Year Award alongside Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), David Moyes (West Ham United), Brendan Rodgers (Leicester City) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Manchester United). Guardiola was named the award recipient after leading his team to both the Premier League and Capital One Cup titles.
Wilson has two years left on his Liverpool contract and the Reds won’t let him leave the club on the cheap especially after his successful loan spell with Cardiff City in the English Championship. The Welsh player was one of the key players for a Cardiff City team that finished the latest English Championship campaign strongly in eighth position.
Leeds United and Liverpool might do more than one business this summer with the latter said to be interested in Brazilian player Raphinha. Raphinha enjoyed a hugely successful debut season in the Premier League with Leeds United whom he joined last summer. The Brazilian was one of the standout players for the Leeds United team that didn’t lose to any of the top six teams at home.
