The next transfer window is going to be very important for Leeds United, particularly if they win promotion to the Premier League.
This enforced break has given clubs up and down the country to plan ahead for that and the Whites will be drawing up a list of players they want to bring in.
And, reports have suggested that QPR’s Bright Osayi-Samuel could be a target for the Yorkshire side after his impressive season in the Championship that has seen him score five goals and register eight assists.
Whilst some fans may prefer a more high-profile addition, particularly if Leeds go up, we outline THREE reasons why securing a deal for the 22-year-old would be an excellent bit of business…
He is extremely talented
Firstly, and most importantly, the Whites would be getting a player that has real ability.
Anyone who has seen Osayi-Samuel play will quickly have seen the skill and quality he has on the ball and his quick, direct style makes him impossible to handle at times. Given his age, he could go on to be a star in the years to come.
He could be a bargain buy
Another positive to any deal is the fact that the winger could be a potential bargain.
With just 12 months left on his contract at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, QPR are realistically going to have to cash in if they can’t agree a new deal.
Whilst Club Brugge have had a £3m offer rejected for the player, he clearly won’t command a huge fee given that contract situation.
They need more depth in the final third
Finally, he would be giving Leeds United more depth in the final third – something that is required.
Capable of playing down the left and right flank, Osayi-Samuel will give further competition out wide and provide more balance to the squad.
