Leeds United should back Bielsa and secure the signing of this £6.3m-rated forward



Leeds United fans are in for another exciting summer at Elland Road, with new manager Marcelo Bielsa in place and hoping to bring in a whole host of new signings to the club.

The Whites, who are now onto their third manager in 12 months following Thomas Christiansen and Paul Heckingbottom’s ill fated stays with the club, will be looking to their new man at the helm to finally position the club for a run at the playoff places in the Championship.

It remains to be seen whether the club will have huge sums to spend after employing Bielsa, but it would be safe to assume that some funding is in place to back the experienced Argentine in his quest for glory in England.

One player we at FLW think would be a superb first addition to the ranks at Elland Road is Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri, who is widely expected to be available for a move this summer.

Valued at £6.3m by Transfermarkt, the little forward would be the perfect sort of big name signing to get Leeds fans off their feet and give Bielsa the chance to show supporters that he means serious business.

The diminutive Italian was injured for much of last season, but returned towards the end of the campaign to notch five goals in just ten games, and his quality is there for all to see.

If Leeds really do want to make a statement of intent this season, then signing someone like Forestieri would be the perfect sort of addition.

Leeds fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
