Bojan could be left-field Leeds option with Bielsa still waiting for a number ten

Leeds have not yet made an outfield signing in the January transfer window and Bojan has the quality to shine in Marcelo Bielsa’s system.

New Stoke City manager Nathan Jones is willing to listen to offers for playmaker Bojan, according to the Daily Mail.

Jones’ spell at the Bet365 Stadium has got off to a rocky start – with the only bright spot being the 2-1 win over Leeds – and the former Luton manager reportedly wants to reduce the club’s wage bill.

That means that Bojan – as well as fellow high earners Darren Fletcher and Peter Crouch – are apparently on the market before the transfer window closes on Thursday night.

Bojan hasn’t played since November but is a talented player who should flourish within the right system; as evidenced by the fact he was part of the Barcelona sides that won the Champions League in 2008-09 and 2010-11.

Leeds United are currently a little light on numbers – having thus far failed to make an outfield signing during the January window – and Marcelo Bielsa has reportedly wanted a new number ten since the start of the month.

 

They are seemingly content to shop in the Championship market – with a strong interest also in Daniel James – and Bojan could be an inspired swoop to add a sprinkle of stardust to their frontline.

Bojan can also play on both flanks and as a striker, and Leeds underlined their ambition and ability to pay big wages by bringing in another Champions League winner in the shape of Kiko Casilla – Bojan would be another flex of their muscles in the market.
