A potential summer target for Leeds from every Premier League club - Part 2

The second part includes players from Everton, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Here is the second part looking at potential targets - one from each Premier League club - that Leeds United may want to look at in the summer transfer window, either on loan or permanently.


Darron Gibson's time at Goodison Park appears to be coming to an end given the lack of first-team opportunities he has had this season. Despite his injury problems, the 28-year-old has plenty of technical ability and could help nurture Leeds' youthful midfield. And if Roberto Martinez does decide that he is not needed on Merseyside, there may well be the potential for a cheaper deal, whether that be on loan or permanently.

Leicester City

With Liam Moore seeing no first-team action in the Premier League this term, the fact that the Foxes will almost definitely be in the Champions League next season potentially means that he could fall even further down the pecking order at the King Power Stadium. He proved during his time in the Championship that he was a very capable centre-back so it would be a big mistake to let him head elsewhere, especially given that Leeds' defence has been guilty of a series of clangers this season.


Sheyi Ojo is developing into a potentially special player. And if Jurgen Klopp decides that his development will be better served away from Anfield on loan, then Leeds need to make a move. The winger has speed and trickery in abundance, and while his end product is a weakness currently, the fact is he'll create more opportunities for himself in the second tier than he would in the top flight so while it may be a gamble, it could be one that reaps plenty of rewards.

Manchester City

Bersant Celina is a midfielder who appears to have huge potential. However, he is surely fighting a losing battle if he hopes to start earning more opportunities at the Etihad in the near future due to the star-studded squad the Citizens boast. He has only played 13 minutes in the Premier League but used that time well as he set Sergio Aguero up for a goal in their defeat to Leicester. With Lewis Cook being deployed slightly further forward in recent times, Celina would probably have more luck developing his game if he was to move to Elland Road on loan.

Manchester United

Nick Powell has watched his career stagnate since his move to Old Trafford, but his talent is obviously there. A loan move to a side where he has the freedom to play his natural game could be the perfect way for him to get back on track. However, a new system may be needed to accommodate Powell coming into the side if Cook is given an attacking midfield role as the former Crewe man would surely not get in the side ahead of the Leeds academy graduate.
