Leeds United are rightly excited by the appointment of their new manager. Marcelo Bielsa is a top appointment and fans at Elland Road are hoping the Argentine can bring back the glory days.
The Yorkshire Evening Post is now reporting he has his eyes on new faces, including a potential raid on Tottenham Hotspur. The report claims players could arrive on loan from the Premier League side, due to the excellent relationship between Pochettino and Bielsa.
So should Bielsa ask for one of Pochettino’s favourites to plug a troublesome gap at Elland Road?
Leeds need a new goalkeeper and Tottenham have Argentine stopper Paulo Gazzaniga as their third-choice. A popular player with Pochettino, with the pair both being from the same town in Argentina, he was snapped up from Southampton last summer to act as back-up to Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.
He played just once for the club, putting in a man-of-the-match display against Crystal Palace in a close 1-0 win.
A loan move to Leeds would make perfect sense. Gazzaniga would get regular football, working under a manager that Pochettino trusts. It would keep him fresh and alert, should he be needed back at Spurs.
He would also give Bailey Peacock-Farrell competition for the first-team spot at Leeds. This would no doubt be a shrewd move for both Tottenham and Leeds.
