Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa could be forced to go back to the transfer market, amid fears that current number one Kiko Casilla could be looking for a move away from Elland Road during the summer transfer window, as reported by Sun journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.
This move could potentially push the Whites to consider Ipswich Town keeper Bartosz Bialkowski, who could be on his way out of Portman Road having been linked with a move to Millwall and Birmingham City, as per the print edition of the Mirror (June 6, Page 57).
So should Leeds capitalise on the Bialkowski transfer chase amid the goalkeeper uncertainty at Elland Road?
“Bialkowski would be a good addition but Leeds don’t need another goalkeeper right now.
“If they are considering selling Casilla then it’s a move which makes sense, but they still have Peacock-Farrell to call upon and the young ‘keeper deserves more game time next season.
“Bialkowski would still command a large fee despite Ipswich’s relegation, and there is little point selling Casilla for a decent sum if they have to spend it all on another goalkeeper.”
“I think they should, it makes sense.
“It seems likely Casilla will go, and even if Peacock-Farrell does stay, they will need a senior alternative to him.
“Bialkowski’s experience makes him a decent option for that, both in terms of his reliability on the pitch, and the insight he could provide to Peacock-Farrell off it.”
“Not for me.
“Bialkowski is a competent enough shot-stopper but is he any better than Bailey Peacock-Farrell? I’m not sure.
“I would personally like to see the youth graduate given another starting shot.”
