In the next 12 days, Football League clubs up and down the country are sure to be knocking on the door of Premier League clubs in order to put the finishing touches to their squad before the loan window slams shut.
Leeds United, who have been buoyed by back-to-back wins under new boss Steve Evans, should be no different and we take a look at why Joao Teixeira should be the first name on their list.
The Liverpool midfielder has recently returned from nasty injury and got himself up to full fitness. With that in mind, we take a look at what he would add to the Leeds team should he join.
What would Teixeira bring to Leeds?
The attacking midfielder is an incredibly creative player, with an exceptional track record at Championship level already.
As reported by Sky Sports at the time, the 22-year-old was named Brighton and Hove Albion's young player of the year last season and was also their top goalscorer in the league, albeit with an underwhelming six goals.
He would add to what Leeds already have in midfield, with Lewis Cook, Alex Mowatt and Tom Adeyemi ideal partners, and add a creative spark which could really see the Whites fly up the league table.
Probability of Teixeira joining Leeds?
If Leeds want to do a deal, it would be surprising to see either Liverpool or Teixeira turn down the offer to do business.
The Portuguese midfielder isn't currently getting in the matchday squad on a regular basis and would benefit massively from a loan move, even if only until January.
It is a very real opportunity for both club and player, however, it's whether Evans sees the midfielder as target.
