Lewis Baker has joined Leeds United on loan from Chelsea, in what the club called the “first arrival” of the summer. So how many more are due to arrive in the summer transfer window?

In the opening press conference, Marcelo Bielsa said that he’d like to “strengthen” four to five positions. It appears that midfielder was one of those positions, although with the system that Bielsa uses, not everyone who has been deemed a “midfielder” should expect to line up in the middle of the pitch. Leeds have been linked with a number of players, including defenders, goalkeepers, and strikers.

So who’s next? And how many more are coming?

On to the links.
