Leeds United have been linked again to Lukas Nmecha.

Leeds United were claimed over the weekend to be in pole position to sign Manchester City starlet Lukas Nmecha on loan, The Sun report.

Nmecha would be a luxury addition after already signing Patrick Bamford, but that does not mean Leeds should back off.

Adding Nmecha would consolidate a position of strength, and provide Leeds with the league's most exciting strikeforce.

 

Unproven in senior football, Nmecha has been ripping it up at youth level, with 26 goals in 33 under-23 games, and 10 in 12 in the FA Youth Cup.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reportedly is keen on him joining Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds to progress his career, and the Whites should jump at the chance.

With Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts, Lukas Nmecha would give Leeds real depth in attack, and that is without teenage sensation Ryan Edmondson who was prolific in pre-season for the Whites.

At the weekend Leeds left all of them out, going with Kemar Roofe leading the line, and he did so effectively even though he was not on the scoresheet,

Having three talented options in Bamford, Nmecha and Roberts would set the Whites up for promotion, and pushing through a deal for the England youth international is a must.
