Report: Leeds join hunt for in-demand Liverpool starlet

With Patrick Bamford hitting top form at the right time, Eddie Nketiah will surely be left waiting for his chance at Leeds United this season.

The Whites striker found the back of the net once again on Saturday in the 2-1 victory against Luton, with Nketiah missing out through injury.

Bamford’s goals have surely put an end to the debate of who Marcelo Bielsa should choose to lead the line. We believe that the more the former Middlesbrough man plays, the more confidence he will have in the final third.

Even though the goals have started to flow, January may still be a busy window for the Whites in terms of attacking reinforcements.

The Mirror has reported that Leeds have joined the hunt for Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster in the January transfer window.

The report claimed that we have been joined by Aston Villa, Swansea, and Crystal Palace in chasing the 19-year-old, who could be available on loan.

Brewster hasn’t troubled the Liverpool first-team in the league this season, making the bench just once, although he has played in both EFL Cup games.

He would surely be better off getting more meaningful game time for the rest of the season.

Given that Arsenal could potentially recall Nketiah, it would be smart for Victor Orta to set his sights on a replacement in January.

Should the Gunners not decide to make that call, we believe that any move for Brewster would be unnecessary – it would just add an extra man in an area where he isn’t needed.
