Leeds United look set to miss out on PL target as Rangers aim to steal in



Leeds United look set to miss out on Swansea City talisman Ollie McBurnie, as Scottish Premier League side Rangers emerge as strong favourites to sign the Scottish international.

According to the Daily Mail, Steven Gerrard’s side are edging closer to a deal with the 21-year-old striker.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side are expected to be very active in this summer’s transfer window, following another mid-table finish in this seasons Championship table.

Leeds United are linked with Swansea City’s Ollie McBurnie, but Rangers seem to be the front runners to sign the Leeds born forward.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side will reportedly turn to Hull City Abel Hernandez as a potential signing after missing out on the forward who spent this season on loan at Barnsley.

The 27-year-old Uruguayan front man is out of contract this summer, and was not named in Uruguay’s provisional World Cup squad this week, despite scoring eight goals in his ten appearances for the Tigers this season.

The Verdict

Leeds United have won just four out of a possible 16 games under the management of Paul Heckingbottom, and if that is to change next season, a prolific goal scorer needs to be brought in this summer.

Despite missing out on Ollie McBurnie, Abel Hernandez knows how to find the net, which is exactly what Leeds United have missed in recent years, and would be a great addition to their squad.
