Leeds should rival Manchester City for 23-year-old available for £10m; 28 PL apps this term - TBR View

One of Leeds United’s biggest priorities in the transfer window will surely be to sign a new left-back.

Remarkably, Marcelo Bielsa’s men tackled this past season without a recognised option in that position.

Gjanni Alioski and Stuart Dallas shared the responsibility. Youngster Leif Davis also made a couple of appearances.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Alioski. Dallas meanwhile, looks to be at his best in the middle of the park.

Celtic fans left short-changed by Sky Sports once again

Signing a new left-back therefore, looks to be a must for Bielsa’s men.

And perhaps the Whites should be alerted by reports over the weekend.

It was claimed by The Sun that Manchester City want Antonee Robinson.

Pep Guardiola is also reportedly on the lookout for a new left-back this summer. And Robinson is on his radar.

According to the report, he could cost just £10 million following Fulham’s relegation.

Robinson is not yet the finished article. But, like many of his Fulham teammates, he showed glimpses of quality in a difficult campaign.

He could therefore, be an exciting signing for another Premier League side. And if Leeds joined the running, they would surely stand an excellent chance of winning the race.

Of course, turning City down would be hugely difficult for any player. But Leeds would be able to offer more assurances over game-time.

He looks to be a player who could command a much larger fee in the future. So Leeds surely need to put themselves in the race.

Robinson transfer could be shrewd move from Leeds

It says a lot about Robinson’s talent that Manchester City are interested. It suggests that Guardiola believes that he could really flourish surrounded by better players.

With Leeds’s brand of football, he could certainly take his game to the next level at Elland Road.

If he is indeed available for just £10 million, he will surely be a player Victor Orta at least looks at.
