Leeds United: Fans react to Eddie Nketiah story

A number of Leeds United fans have reacted online after a journalist claimed the club do not need to sign Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.

With Patrick Bamford continuing to miss out on action due to a worrying injury, Leeds have looked a little light up top this season.

And, as Nketiah will enter the final six months on his contract come January, a potential move to Elland Road – where he previously enjoyed a loan spell – could make sense for all parties.

Should Leeds try sign Eddie Nketiah?





However, LeedsLive writer Joe Donnohue claimed in a recent article that Leeds are ‘not desperate’ enough to seek out a new striker in the coming transfer market.

He claimed that – with Bamford hopefully set to return in the not-too-distant future – the Englishman, Rodrigo, Joe Gelhardt and Tyler Roberts should provide Marcelo Bielsa with enough depth to get through the season.

Donnohue shared his feelings on Twitter and it didn’t take long before some supporters had their say.

Here’s what these Leeds fans had to say

“Joe sorry but they do. Rodrigo is hit and miss, Roberts isn’t good enough. When Bamford is out Leeds struggle for goals Eddie is miles better than Roberts will ever be.”

“I’d be inclined to disagree here, I think we do need another striker to add depth.”
“How do we not need one? You’ve seen how much we’ve struggled without Bamford. I think cover and someone pushing Bamford when fit is exactly what we need. The Rodrigo experiment unfortunately doesn’t look like it works for us.”
