Despite a great performance against West Brom Leeds fans are crying out for a creative player in the attacking third and Harry Wilson may be the answer. Leeds United are looking to move for the exciting 21-year-old
With 12 goals and 4 assists in 33 appearances it’s hard not to see why Leeds want to sign him on loan. Creativity is in Harry Wilson’s DNA and has been exhibited throughout the season.
The Welshman’s offensive statistics are to be admired, for example, he has completed 1.5 key passes per game which amplifies his technical ability in the final third to carve an opponent’s defense.
Additionally, his direct approach to his play is what Leeds United need to move up a level and cement themselves as a Premier League standard team next season.
Wilson’s direct nature is shown as he has achieved a staggering 2.6 shots per game and has gained 2.4 fouls per game. The midfielders ability to strike a ball from distance is what Leeds United desire as sometimes they have been lacking in the testing of an oppositions keeper.
Furthermore, Wilson has been fouled 2.4 times per game over the course of the season and this is due to his quality on the ball and willingness to beat players, which is what Bielsa feels Leeds are lacking with plans to approach another direct Welshman – Daniel James.
Harry Wilson is on loan from Liverpool at Derby which should only be an incentive for Leeds to get their man. This is because transfers between Leeds United and Liverpool have produced a history of class.
A current example is James Milner who was brought up at Leeds and has won countless trophies and is again in a title race this season. Legends such as Gary McAllister have played for both prestigious sides winning a league title with Leeds in 1992 and a treble with Liverpool in 2001/2002.
Not to forget the Scottish Legend Dominic Matteo who’s most notable individual moment came in the champions league at the San Siro where he scored before half time on his debut and later went on to score against Besiktas in Europe. The Defender had a stand out season as Leeds made it to the semi-finals in 2000/2001 campaign. He also gained captaincy after Rio Ferdinand left in 2002.
Robbie Fowler is arguably up there with one of the best strikers to ever have graced both Elland Road and Anfield and not to forget the talented Harry Kewell. This long list of quality players should provide a guide for Harry Wilson to produce exceptional football for Leeds.
Overall, Harry Wilson is a special talent who has already gained international caps for Wales which shows his
