Leeds should renew reported 2017 interest in highly-rated 21-year-old

Leeds United will go in search of some new players ahead of the 2019/20 campaign as they aim to put last season’s disappointment behind them.

The Whites failed in their promotion quest last time out, losing to Derby County in the play-off semi-final.

Boss Marcelo Bielsa has agreed to stick with the Elland Road-based club and that will put them among the favourites for promotion next season.

A 2017 Leeds target was among the goals for Poland during their 3-2 victory. Goal reported that Arsenal defender Krystian Bielik held talks with the Whites a couple of years ago.

Last season he played 34 games during a loan spell with Charlton, helping Lee Bowyer’s team towards promotion to the Championship.

The 21-year-old is at something of a crossroads in his career.

He has just one year left on his contract at the Emirates and first-team opportunities are unlikely to be forthcoming.

The central defender proved his worth during his loan at The Valley last season and Leeds would be wise to renew their previous interest.

Bielsa is desperate for some cover for Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper.

Bielik highlighted his quality during last night’s game for the Poland Under-21s. He is strong in the tackle, reads the game well and is capable with the ball at his feet.

With no new contract offer forthcoming at Arsenal, Leeds should capitalise and secure a highly-talented youngster ahead of his very best years.
