The European Championships begin this week, and club teams will be paying close attention looking for potential signings.

New Leeds United head coach Garry Monk could be one of those watching with interest, as he looks to strengthen the team.

We have put together an XI speculating how Leeds could line up next season, featuring four players at the tournament who the Championship side could look to sign.

The spine of the Leeds team needs strengthening, with a new goalkeeper, new defender, and new striker included in the XI, along with a right winger.

So who are the new faces?

Striker Will Grigg has become a household name around Britain thanks to his exploits for Wigan Athletic last season, which spawned a terrace chant now turned into a pop song.

Grigg netted 28 goals and forced his way into the Northern Ireland squad, and bookies SkyBet already count Leeds among the contenders for his signature.

On the wing Leeds are in need of invention, and Swedish wide man Emil Forsberg could be just the man.

The former Swedish player of the year plays for Red Bull Leipzig, and is just 24-years-old. He scored in the recent friendly against Wales and would not break the bank.

Leeds captain Sol Bamba should not be assured of his first team spot after mixed displays last season, and Hungarian international Adam Lang could be a player who could challenge him.

The 23-year-old is a Hungarian league winner with Videoton, and has 11 international caps. With experience playing in Champions League qualifiers too under his belt, he has played at a high standard but equally his side may find it tough to resist a good offer.

In goal Liverpool back-up Danny Ward has been included as part of Wales' squad, and could be a shrewd addition at Leeds.

The goalkeeper impressed on loan at Aberdeen last year and was recalled, even starting a Premier League game, but Liverpool's signing of Loris Karius from Mainz knocks him back down the pecking order to third choice, when he needs to play regular football, and Leeds could offer that if they choose him as a replacement for Marco Silvestri.
