Michael Brown has tipped Leeds United to sign several attacking players during this summer’s transfer window.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Leeds midfielder claims striker Patrick Bamford needs help up front after a season where he has had little competition for a starting place.
The 26-year-old has started all but two of the club’s 42 league games this season and has scored 16 goals in their push for automatic promotion back to the Premier League.
Brown believes Leeds’ biggest problems lie in attack and has tipped the Whites to bolster their ranks with a couple of summer additions.
Brown told Football Insider: “Any good player who can put the ball in the net, that’s what they’re going to want.
“Does Bamford need some help at the top of the pitch? For sure, of course he does. As you go into the Premier League you’re probably going to need another couple of attacking players to help the likes of Costa and Bamford.
“You’ve got Hernandez behind there who’s got that creativity but they’ll need forward players, you need to score goals in the Premier League and there’ll be a few coming in, I would expect.”
Manager Marcelo Bielsa brought in strikers Eddie Nketiah and Jean-Kevin Augustin on loan this season but neither made a significant impact.
The Arsenal man scored five goals in 19 appearances, only one of which came as a Championship start, while the RB Leipzig loanee managed to play just 48 minutes before heading back to Germany.
