With the summer transfer window edging closer to opening, we take a look at how Leeds United’s team could look next season.

Goalkeeper: Daniel Bentley

Leeds are said to be looking to create a more British core to their squad, and Southend United’s Bentley is a long-term target.

The young goalkeeper has looked impressive in League One, but he is likely to move on from Roots Hall this summer, with Leeds a possible destination.

Right-back: Gaetano Berardi/Lewie Coyle

Berardi was one of Leeds’ most consistent performers this past season, and he looks set to start next campaign as first choice right-back.

Coyle has looked comfortable when played in the first-team, though, and he should be given fairly regular action to aid his development.

Centre-backs: Liam Cooper and Sol Bamba

Cooper has enjoyed a fine season for Leeds, and looks likely to remain in the starting line-up.

Bamba’s place is less certain, but he is a preferred option to Giuseppe Bellusci, who looks destined to depart Elland Road.

Left-back: Charlie Taylor

One of Leeds’ most talented players, if the Whites can keep hold of him, he will be key to their chances.

Left-midfield: Anthony Limbombe

Limbombe may not be a household name in English football, but the 21-year-old looks to be a bright prospect.

Limbombe has been heavily linked with Leeds already, after he scored seven goals in 32 appearances for NEC Nijmegen this term.

Central-midfield: Liam Bridcutt and Lewis Cook

Bridcutt was expressed a desire to complete a permanent move from Sunderland to Leeds, while Cook is arguably the Yorkshire side’s best player.

Right-wing: Stuart Dallas/Salvador Agra

Dallas had an excellent first season at Leeds, after signing from Brentford and looks set to remain an important player next term.

Agra would be more of a wildcard addition, but the 24-year-old certainly has the ability to make an impression in the Championship.

Strikers: Chris Wood and Jason Cummings

Wood may have not had the most prolific first season at Elland Road, but Leeds are likely to keep faith in him.

Cummings, meanwhile, has been heavily linked with a move to Yorkshire and after a wonderful goalscoring campaign for Hibernian, he could make a exciting addition.
