According to the Athletic at the end of last week, Leeds have kept Rhian Brewster in mind with him on loan at Swansea and may be interested in a move for him in the summer transfer window – if Liverpool are willing to agree some kind of deal.
And, for Whites fans, that should potentially be exciting but the club must avoid repeating recent history as they did with Eddie Nketiah.
The Whites have been very strong this season. They’ve played great football and the attacking chances created should have meant that the club was even further clear than they were before the season came to a halt.
When it resumes, Patrick Bamford is once again likely to be relied on with Jean-Kevin Augustin fighting to be in front of him in the pecking order, though you don’t hold out much hope for him.
At times this season, both Augustin and, before him, Nketiah were called for to come into the side by many fans but, more often than not, Marcelo Bielsa persisted with Bamford up front – sometimes to a good effect, sometimes to bad.
Indeed, there will be question marks over Bamford if the club does get promoted to the Premier League and Bielsa must be willing to drop him – if Brewster is waiting in the wings or if any other striker is there champing at the bit for their chance.
Brewster is an exciting young striker and has done decently for Swansea since arriving – scoring four times in 11 league games – with Liverpool bound to be happy that he is playing regularly.
They, like Arsenal with Nketiah, will not be wanting to see him sit on the Whites’ bench next season, and Leeds must avoid repeating the same mistakes if they do sign him.
