Double scouting mission for Leeds: Two reported targets Dan James and Harry Wilson go head-to-head in midweek

Dan James’ Swansea take on Harry Wilson’s Derby.

Derby County travel to Swansea City on Wednesday night knowing a win would seriously strengthen their hopes of finishing in the top six.

The Rams are sixth at the moment with a game in hand. And considering the sixth-place team are likely to face Leeds United in the semi-final, Marcelo Bielsa will be keeping a close eye on this.

But Leeds should be watching this fixture for another reason: it could be a scouting mission for two reported targets.

Swansea winger Dan James and Derby’s Harry Wilson will go head-to-head in Wednesday night’s clash. And both have been linked with summer moves to Leeds.

The speedy 21-year-old has now been linked with Manchester City (The Sun) in a £7m move but Leeds could look at him again if they win promotion.

 

Alternatively, Leeds could launch a swoop for Wilson. The Welsh winger is on loan at Derby from Liverpool but faces an uncertain future at Anfield.

After some eye-catching performances at Pride Park, Wilson will not be short of suitors this summer. The 22-year-old will be a target for Leeds if they go up (The Sun via HITC Sport).

The two Welsh wingers could be potential Samu Saiz replacements when the Spaniard completes his inevitable move to La Liga.

And Leeds have the chance to compare both players when they face each other in this Wednesday’s Championship clash.
