‘I’m not totally convinced’ – Leeds United close in on attacker transfer deal: Opinion

Published

After their 1-0 win against Derby County on Saturday, there is little doubt that the attention of Leeds United will remain on the task in hand. 

Well, most of it anyway.

With the summer transfer window ready to swing open shortly, you can bet that the powers that be will already be working away behind the scenes to set-up deals.

And, according to Spanish outlet Marca, the Whites are set to complete their first deal in the form of Barcelona B striker Rafa Mujica.

The 20-year-old is predominantly a striker but is capable of playing on either wing, scoring seven goals in 33 Spanish second division appearances in the previous season.

But would this be a good signing for Leeds?

We discuss…

George Harbey 

“This has the potential to become a very exciting signing for Leeds.

“Mujica certainly looks like a very talented player on paper, and clearly has a good pedigree having come through the ranks at Barcelona.

“They do need to strengthen their attacking options, as Kemar Roofe, Patrick Bamford, Ryan Edmondson just aren’t enough, especially if they win promotion to the Premier League.”

Ben Lang

“I think this would a decent signing for Leeds U23s to begin with.

“Mujica’s record isn’t great for a forward player and he will also need time to adapt in England, but Bielsa clearly thinks he fits the mould of player he wants.

“I think Leeds should go for it, but they must focus on securing their Premier League fate first.”

Toby Wilding 

“I’m not totally convinced by this one.

“Barcelona may have pedigree, but playing for their B team in the third tier of Spanish football hasn’t brought about a great goals return from Mujica, though his versatility may work in his and Leeds’ favour.

“You feel Leeds will have to bring in better goalscoring threats if they are to challenge for or stay in the Premier League next season even so.”
