Since the departure of Samu Saiz on loan to Getafe earlier in the season and the seemingly imminent move back to La Liga, Leeds have at times struggled to find real creativity in the attacking third.
Forestieri, in March, took to Instagram posting an almost fan like photo beside Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa (also a Rosario native) with both having links to Newell’s Old Boys.
What can be expected from Forestieri? A 35 yard cannon to the top corner in April against Norwich City shows that it’s evident he’s not afraid to take a shot on, no matter the angle or distance, with the potential to be clinical from there also.
Forestieri was linked to Leeds United in recent years under the Massimo Cellino regime, therefore the club will be more than familiar with the abilities he possesses.
