Stats

According to WhoScored, Gonzalez made 21 starts and six substitute appearances in the second division in Germany for Stuttgart this past season, scoring 14 goals and providing three assists in the process.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the 22-year-old Argentina international striker made 23 starts and seven substitute appearances in the Bundesliga for Stuttgart, scoring two goals and providing three assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

Need for a striker

Patrick Bamford is the main striker at Leeds at the moment, but the Englishman needs competition.

With the Whites back in the Premier League, they simply cannot rely on one senior striker for an entire season.
