Many Leeds United fans have been sharing who they would like to see Marcelo Bielsa sign this summer should they gain promotion to the Premier League.
Argentine boss Bielsa almost guided the Yorkshire club to Premier League promotion at the first time of asking since taking over at the club two summers ago, but despite that disappointment, his side have bounced back to sit at the top of the Championship table this time round.
Consistent performances have seen Leeds maintain their position in the two automatic promotion places, along with Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion, and promotion now looks extremely likely.
With football at a current standstill due to recent events, fans of the club have begun to look ahead to what could be a busy transfer window for Bielsa and the club as they prepare to potentially take on the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool next term.

Bielsa has been lucky in that a number of his players this term have been in such good form, seeing the likes of Pablo Hernandez, Luke Ayling and Ben White impress, but undoubtedly the former Athletic Bilbao tactician will be keen to add further depth to his squad.
Football League World’s Ben Crump looked deeper into who could potentially move to Elland Road this summer, and asked fans of The Whites via Facebook group All Leeds Arent we!!!: “If you could sign one player from the Championship this summer to take up to the PL with us, who would it be?” – and the question gained a massive response.

Thomas Naahr Nielsen: Matty Cash
