The Whites have made a mightily impressive start to life under Thomas Christiansen, with two wins and two draws in their opening four Championship games, but following the sale of Chris Wood to Burnley, the signing of at least one quality player will be of paramount importance to help boost morale in the squad.
Whilst Christiansen will be looking for a like-for-like replacement for Wood, the addition of another creative, goalscoring midfielder will surely feature highly on his agenda too, and with this in mind, Leeds should enter the race for Bees ace Jota, to help provide competition for Samu Saiz in the number 10 position.
The Spaniard was in scintillating form for Brentford last term, scoring 12 goals and chipping in with five assists in 21 Championship outings, and he has already contributed with three assists in three games for the west London outfit this season.
The 26-year-old can play anywhere along the front-line, and is equally as effective when deployed in either wing position or when slotted in behind the main striker, which would ideally suit the west Yorkshire outfit's system.
The kind of goal and assists output that Jota would bring to Leeds could make all the difference between an average Championship campaign and a successful one, and Christiansen should not hesitate to bring him to Elland Road.
According to the Sun, West Ham and Newcastle are considering moves for the £8 million-rated ace, so the Whites should act quickly if they want to secure a deal for the talented Spaniard.
