Leeds United should look at signing Everton outcast Muhamed Besic

The midfielder is almost certain to depart Goodison Park this summer.

It looks set to be a frantic couple of weeks for Leeds United ahead of the transfer window closing until January.

The Whites have added a couple of players to their ranks already this summer. Helder Costa has arrived on loan from Wolves and Ben White on a temporary basis from Brighton.

More are likely to be required for Leeds to make a genuine promotion push, however.

Leeds do still look somewhat suspect in certain areas and their supporters will hope to see more incoming activity.

One man who would make a solid addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s ranks is Everton outcast Muhamed Besic.

David Unsworth recently told the Liverpool Echo that the Bosnian is likely to leave Goodison Park this summer; opening the door for Leeds to make a move.

The Whites aren’t blessed with loads of options in the middle of the park and interest is rife in Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich.

 

Besic played 52 games for Middlesbrough spread across two loan spells, performing exceptionally well.

He knows the league and would add something different to the midfield ranks at Elland Road.

The 26-year-old is an elegant performer, comfortable on the ball and isn’t afraid to get stuck into a tackle or two.

The £30,000-a-week performer (Spotrac) has two years remaining on his current deal at Everton but it seems highly likely that his days at Goodison Park are numbered.

He arrived on Merseyside in 2014 for £4 million from Ferencvaros (The Guardian). Having only made 56 appearances for the Toffees he should prove affordable for Leeds.

Something different is definitely required in midfield for the Whites and Besic could prove a shrewd move by Bielsa.
