Leeds United are crying out for some new signings this summer and should throw their name into the hat for Watford ace Nordin Amrabat.

Turkish club Trabzonspor are eyeing a loan deal for the Watford winger, according to Sky Sports on their transfer centre blog (12:26pm, 12 July).

The 31-year-old could make a significant impact in the Championship if given the opportunity and Leeds should potentially plot a rival move.

Here is a look at three reasons why Amrabat would be a great signing for the Whites:

Improve competition

There is no doubt that Leeds could do with some extra competition in wide areas and Amrabat would solve that issue.

The likes of Stuart Dallas, Hadi Sacko and Kemar Roofe would all be at risk of missing out if the Whites landed the Watford ace on loan.

Marcelo Bielsa’s current squad looks someway short of competing for promotion and building a more competitive squad is going to be crucial.

Ease fears restless fans

Leeds supporters are growing restless at the club’s transfer activity so far and they could do with a new arrival to settle the nerves at Elland Road.

It seems like the Yorkshire giants are loaning out players almost every day and fans want to see some new faces arrive.

Leeds should try to hijack interest in Amrabat and bring him to the club as soon as possible.

Star quality

Amrabat reminded people of his quality with Morocco at this summer's World Cup, where he proved he is brilliant in one-on-one positions and a nuisance for full-backs. 

He has excellent delivery that most strikers can only dream of and also has a tremendous work-rate that would tick a lot of boxes for Bielsa.

The winger is the sort of player that can change a game in a split moment and has an X-factor that would make him a hit with Leeds fans.
