With the winter transfer window already underway, Leeds United can scout star players from the Bundesliga, a league full of young talented players. With recent results not going the way the club wanted, Leeds should target these Bundesliga stars in order to improve and climb to the top of the Premier League table. Expensive players like Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho, and Serge Gnabry won’t be included in this list.
9. Julio Villalba (Centre-Forward, Borussia Monchengladbach, 22-years-old) –
Villalba is likely to move on from Monchengladbach soon. After being loaned out from the club last season, Villalba could fit well full time with Leeds.
8. Vincenzo Grifo (Left Winger, SC Freiburg, 27-years-old) –
Tied ninth in goals scored, Grifo is a prolific goal scorer. His style of play can fit well in the Leeds lineup and can be a good reserve for Jack Harrison on the left wing.
7. Silas Wamangituka (Right Winger, VfB Stuttgart, 21-years-old) –
Tied fifth for goals, Wamangituka is a young up and coming star in the Bundesliga. The Congolese striker has lots of ability, but he still has three and a half years on his contract so may be expensive for a position Leeds are fairly well stocked in.
6. Nadiem Amiri (Attacking Midfield, Bayer Leverkusen, 24-years-old) –
One of the top assist players in the Bundesliga, Amiri has all the tools for an attacking midfielder such as assisting, cover the whole pitch, and score. The Germany international would fit well into Leeds midfield.
5. André Silva (Centre-Forward, Eintracht Frankfurt, 25-years-old) –
Tied second with Haaland for most goals scored this season, Silva is one of the rising stars in the Bundesliga. His ability to score goals makes him a valuable player in the league and if Leeds jumps in to buy him from Frankfurt before he excels, then he would be both an asset and a source of potential profit for the club.
4. Tiago Dantas (Central Midfield, Bayern Munich, 20-years-old) –
Dantas has great potential but it won’t be with Bayern Munich. He needs to play elsewhere so he can have the time to improve and Leeds is the place for him. If we were to go for him, hopefully he gets past the medical, unlike Michael Cuisance.
3. Matthew Hoppe (Centre-Forward, Schalke, 19-years-old) –
The Bundesliga has many American stars but Hoppe is often overlooked more than Gio Reyna or Tyler Adams. Hoppe came to the radar after scoring an important hat-trick for Schalke. With his contract to expire on June 30 this year, Leeds can snag him as a free transfer.
2. Tyler Adams (Defensive Midfield, RB Leipzig, 21-years-old) –
Adams was a household name in the MLS. His move to the Bundesliga drew some hope to make him an elite star but nothing came about during his tenure in Leipzig. Adams is better off having a fresh start and Leeds is the best spot to improve. Adams thrived under pressure (during his NYRB days) and playing in the Premier League will get him focused when he plays against tougher teams like Liverpool or Manchester City.
1. Youssoufa Moukoko (Centre-Forward, Borussia Dortmund, 16-years-old) –
Ok, I know they aren’t going to sell him, but the young Moukoko has a bright future and he will become a household name. If Leeds makes a transfer move on him this year, they will be getting one of the most talented players in world football. Long term Leeds would make a great profit if they decide to sell him, but more importantly could have one of the world’s best goalscorers in a few years. He has the potential to become a leading scorer in any league he is in.
