Leeds United have seemingly been named and linked with making a move for every single striker in the Football League of recent times – however, one striker who would be an excellent acquisition for the Whites would be Burnley’s Nahki Wells.
Although Wells has played for Leeds United’s West-Yorkshire rivals Bradford City and Huddersfield Town, a move to Leeds United would be perfect for the striker, who struggled to feature for Premier League Burnley last season, after he made a £5m move to the Clarets from Huddersfield Town.
Wells rose to fame during his time with Bradford City, in which the striker scored an impressive 53 goals in 104 games, before making a move to Huddersfield Town.
Wells moved to Town and his goalscoring averages were hardly affected during his time in the Championship, with the forward scoring 49 goals in 153 games for the Terriers – which was mighty impressive considering how simple his transition was from League One into the Championship.
The striker would be a perfect fit for Leeds United, he’s quick, he’s got a great eye for goal, he’s proven in the Championship and most importantly, he’s surplus to requirements at Burnley. With the Clarets using ex-Leeds forward Chris Wood for the majority of last season and with the club being linked with a move for Jay Rodriguez, a loan move to Leeds United for the forthcoming season or even a permanent transfer would to Wells the world of good.
He’s would most likely be relatively cheap and his pace and natural goalscoring knack would fit Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa’s team, particularly given the fact Wells is an exciting forward and can really cause defenders problems.
Leeds United would have to make a bid for the forward – and soon, but he would certainly be worth it.
