“They have players like Josh King that have done extremely well.
“Bielsa will only look at the players who would fit his style. Callum Wilson is a possibility as well as David Brooks.
“Wilson, King, Brooks – definitely. You would take all of those players if they became available at the right price. They would certainly do a job in the Premier League next season.”
Wilson scored nine goals in 39 appearances last season whereas King, who has just one year left on his contract with the club, scored six in 26.
Brooks spent the majority of the 2019/20 campaign sidelined with an ankle injury.
