Football expert slams reported Leeds target as 'one-trick pony', suggests alternative

Leeds United have been linked with a move for Celta Vigo winger Emre Mor this month.

Turkish outlet, Haberler has claimed that the Whites are interested and that the 22-year-old would jump at the chance to make the switch to Elland Road.

However, Turkish football expert, Kaan Bayazit has slammed Mor, claiming that the winger is a one-trick pony, whilst suggesting Sivasspor’s Emre Kilinc would be a smarter investment.

“Emre Mor has a lot of technical ability but a very low football IQ, combined with being a bit of a one-trick pony. He’s fast, he can dribble, but that’s it,” he told HITC.

“He doesn’t have a consistent cross or shot so, despite his wonder-kid status from a few years back, he doesn’t really offer much… He’s lazy. It makes no sense to sign him.”

That won’t fill the likes of Victor Orta and his scouting team with much hope over the potential of the youngster, who would surely still be at one of his former clubs like Borussia Dortmund if he was firing on all cylinders and had the right attitude.

With Jack Clarke having moved on to Queens Park Rangers on loan, Leeds are looking at replacing the winger. It has already been reported that the Whites are on the lookout for three players this month.

Bayazit did claim that Kilinc could be a better option, and it’s clear to see why. Comparing their stats via WhoScored, the 25-year-old has been involved in 11 more goals this season.

Kilinc has also averaged double the amount of shots on goal per game, as well as quadruple more key passes – which clearly highlights that he could be much more dangerous.
