Leeds fans should be buzzing amid loan links with Daryl Dike
Leeds United are one of the sides who have been linked with a late loan move for Daryl Dike as the transfer deadline looms.
According to Teamtalk, the Whites are interested in the 21-year-old. And it is suggested that a loan move could be possible.
Admittedly, fans may be tempted to suggest that a deal is unlikely.
But Leeds sprung a surprise late on last summer with a move for a certain Raphinha. So perhaps it would be foolish to rule out any further business.
And it would arguably be an outstanding move if they managed to bring Dike to Elland Road.
The youngster was superb for Barnsley last term, scoring nine times in 19 games as the Tykes stunned everyone and reached the Championship play-offs.
Leeds chasing another Lukaku amid Daryl Dike links?
He was compared with Romelu Lukaku by former Barnsley teammate Jordan Williams last season due to his thunderous shot. He claimed Dike boasts a ‘rocket of a right foot’.
Of course, he is incredibly strong in stature. Few Championship defenders were able to bully the Orlando City striker off the ball.
But his game is about so much more. He makes incredibly clever runs around the box, and some of his touches to bring others into play are sublime. His vision is really impressive.
Patrick Bamford is absolutely pivotal to Leeds’ success. And in many ways, the work he does for the team is just as important as the times he puts the ball into the back of the net.
Dike looks to have that ability to cause similar problems in the final third.
Leeds have Rodrigo and Tyler Roberts also. So it would be a big surprise if Bielsa felt that signing another forward was required.
But if the door is open, the Whites should seriously consider rolling the dice.
