Report: Leeds enter race to sign Juventus youngster Stephy Mavididi on loan

The 21-year-old will have several clubs competing for his signature this summer.

Leeds United are set to enter the race to sign Juventus youngster Stephy Mavididi on loan, according to a report from Team Talk.

The Whites will hope to win promotion to the Premier League next season after falling at the play-off hurdle during 2018/19.

In order to achieve their ultimate ambition, boss Marcelo Bielsa will go in search of some players to bolster his squad.

A former Arsenal trainee, the striker moved to Turin last summer. He spent last season with the club’s Under-23 squad and netted seven goals.

The 21-year-old was included in four matchday squads during his maiden campaign at Juventus. He was introduced as a substitute during a 2-1 defeat against SPAL in April.

Mavididi was prolific with Arsenal’s Under-23 team prior to his move to Italy and looks set to have a whole host of clubs vying for his services this summer.

 

TBR Verdict

Leeds already have Patrick Bamford and Kemar Roofe as striking options in their squad.

Mavididi would probably arrive at Elland Road as a backup option in the first instance, with every chance to impress Bielsa from the bench.

His goalscoring record isn’t exactly sensational and it wouldn’t really be a signing to send out a statement of intent.

Although he has enjoyed reasonable spells in youth football, he is yet to prove himself at senior level.

Previous loan spells at both Charlton and Preston reaped just two goals in 31 appearances.

The 21-year-old would need to hit the ground running in order to impress the Leeds faithful.
