Leeds United: Conor McGilligan slams notion of landing Daichi Kamada

|

Leeds United do not hold a chance of beating some of the bigger clubs to the potential signing of Daichi Kamada. 

This has been suggested by the journalist Conor McGilligan who has been speaking on the One Leeds Fan Channel about the reports regarding the Eintracht Frankfurt star.

It has been claimed the Japanese midfielder is currently set to see more lucrative contract offers come his way ahead of his contract potentially winding down at the end of the season.

And it is believed Leeds are one of the clubs who are keen to throw their hat in the ring for the 26-year-old who made the move to Europe back in 2017.

However, McGilligan has slammed the notion of Leeds being able to provide an attractive offer to Kamada with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur also said to be interested:

“And Kamada might want to come to the Premier League but with teams like Tottenham Hotspur, teams like Chelsea sniffing round, Leeds just don’t have a chance.”

“So what I do love is the fact that our director of football in Victor Orta is very, very ambitious, but I just don’t know what we’re going to be able to sell when we’re coming up against these bigger clubs.”

TIF Thoughts on McGilligan’s comments… 

It is hard to disagree with McGilligan and the notion of moving for Kamada does ring similar to their pursuit of Charles De Ketelaere earlier this year where the player opted for the much bigger club, AC Milan.

Do Leeds stand a chance of landing Kamada?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And given Spurs are currently competing alongside Manchester City and Arsenal at the top of the table, playing Champions League football and have Antonio Conte as their manager, it is hard to disagree.

However, you have to buy a ticket to win the lottery and landing Kamada would certainly feel like that for Leeds. The 26-year-old has made a stunning start to the new campaign with four goals and three assists in six Bundesliga appearances.
