Why this 19-year-old would be a superb signing for Leeds

COMMENT By Emma Sanders

Sergi Canos has the potential to become an excellent signing for Leeds if manager Garry Monk can seal the deal.

According to Sky Sports, Leeds are battling against Brentford to pick up the former Liverpool star from Norwich.

Canos has struggled to break into the first-team at Norwich after joining in the summer for £2.5million but he has huge potential and if Leeds nab him, he could become a future star.

The 19-year-old has terrific ball control and has a lot of flair, which is no surprise given he started out his footballing career in the Barcelona academy.

He was highly-rated at Liverpool, where he spent two years as part of their promising youth set-up and he made his Premier League debut for the club during the final game of the 2015-16 season under Jurgen Klopp.

Canos spent last season on loan at Brentford and he excelled with the Championship outfit, scoring seven goals in 39 appearances during a 12-month spell before he returned to Merseyside for his bow in May.

Many Liverpool fans were saddened to see him leave in the summer as he had demonstrated high levels of skill, flair and creativity during his performances for the academy and on loan.

He has the ability to beat defenders in one-on-one situations and can find space in tight areas – traits which have the potential to develop into a great asset for Leeds.

The Spaniard is still very young and he has not yet been given the opportunity to grow and develop under one manager and Garry Monk has already proven he is willing to put trust in his youngsters.

Under Monk, Canos has the potential to fulfill his potential and if he does, he will become an extremely exciting player for the club.
