Leeds should sign this Jurgen Klopp favourite on January loan to transform attack
COMMENT By Emma Sanders
Leeds should sign Liverpool teenager Sheyi Ojo on loan in January to add to their attacking depth.
The 19-year-old has a bright future at Anfield and is a favourite of Jurgen Klopp but is in need of regular first team action after coming back from a serious injury in the summer.
Ojo suffered a back fracture in the pre-season campaign and he has yet to make an appearance for the Reds this season despite making a breakthrough under Klopp in 2015-16.
The youngster was impressive during 11 appearances in 2016 after he was recalled from his loan spell at Wolves by the Liverpool manager in January after he was struck by his ability to unhinge defences from out wide.
Leeds have a number of attacking stars but only Chris Wood, Kemar Roofe and Hadi Sacko have been truly successful and Ojo could be the perfect replacement for struggling forwards Souleymane Doukara and Marcus Antonsson.

The duo have notched up just five Championship goals between them and Garry Monk could strengthen his options by bringing in Liverpool’s pacy winger.
Ojo has played in a number of positions across the front three during his academy years at Liverpool and he would suit Monk’s attacking formation.
He has great pace and isn’t afraid to take on defenders which would be a great asset for the Championship side and given the success of Leeds other loan stars, Ojo’s arrival would surely bring similar success.
