Pep Guardiola is a keen admirer of Marcelo Bielsa, and is said to be prepared to help the new Leeds boss next term.
Guardiola reportedly wants to send some of his brightest youngsters out on loan to Elland Road, with Nmecha an option for the Whites.
If the youngster does arrive it would be an excellent addition to Leeds’ squad, but Tyler Roberts could be forgiven for pondering how he breaks into Bielsa’s line-up.
Roberts was brought to Leeds from West Bromwich Albion in a £2.5 million deal (Yorkshire Evening Post) in January, but picked up an injury soon after, before he got the chance to play.
And if Nmecha does arrive at Leeds, then Roberts could have to wait even longer for his big break.
Leeds are thought to be in the market for a new number, with Abel Hernandez Matej Vydra and Lewis Grabban linked, and the potential improvements that Bielsa appears to be set to make to his strike force is not necessarily good news for Roberts' first-team chances.
