The Yorkshire Evening Post have claimed that Leeds United are interested in signing Norwegian youth international Emil Bohinen from Stabæk, as they look to replace the loss of Jack Clarke.
Clarke, 19 had his loan at Leeds cut short due to a lack of game time this month. The England youth international returned to parent club Tottenham before moving to QPR, where he made his debut on Saturday during the 1-0 defeat to the London side.
Bohinen, who is the son of former Nottingham Forest star Lars, can play in the middle of the park or out wide. The 20-year-old has clocked up 49 senior appearances for top-tier Norwegian side Stabæk, scoring four goals and creating eight more.
The Norway Under-21 international has a contract with his current side until December 2020, meaning his current side may look to sell him soon in order to bring some cash in for his signature.
TBR’s view – Wonderkid Bohinen can be a Bielsa star
Bielsa has shown that he is more than willing to place his trust in young players, with Clarke a shining example of many young players to have impressed since the Argentine became Leeds boss in the summer of 2018.
Not only would Bohinen replace the loss of Clarke, but he can also provide cover in the middle of the park witgh Adam Forshaw and Tyler Roberts injured. It remains to be seen how much Bohinen would cost.
