Three players Leeds United should be looking to sign from the relegated Clubs

Leeds United have a big Summer ahead and smart recruitments from this season’s relegated sides could do the trick 


Maxwell Cornet would be an ideal signing for the Whites. It is reported that the Ivory Coast International has a buyout clause of just £17.5 million which in today’s market isn’t much at all. He registered nine goals and one assist for Burnley in 26 Premier League appearances with five of them coming from the bench. The 25 year old averages a goal every 0.35 games which is a brilliant record considering the lack of creativity the Clarets have in the side. He predominantly played as a left winger for Burnley but can play at left back and at striker as well. Versatility is key for Jesse Marsch and with rumours circulating that winger Jack Harrison is leaving, surely Cornet is worth a shot.


Leeds only have one recognised left back in Junior Firpo so they desperately need another option in that area. Hassane Kamara from Watford would be a solid addition for the squad. The Ivorian has proved to be a fans’ favourite after consistently producing tireless performances for the Hornets since joining in January. The 28 year old has featured in 18 matches out of a possible 19 and won Watford’s Graham Taylor Player of the Season award. The former Reims man also made more interceptions than any other Watford Player, despite only joining in January. Competition is required for Firpo so it would be a no brainer to sign Kamara in what would be a cheap deal.


Max Aarons is a player who’s been linked with a move away from Carrow Road for a good number of years now. The right back has been part of a Norwich defence which has leaked an extraordinary 84 goals. Norwich also scored the least number of goals in the division but it doesn’t explain the full story about Aarons. The 22 year old ranks in the top 4% of full-backs in Europe’s big five leagues for blocks per 90 minutes and he is in the top 30% for progressive ball carries. Despite being in a team that lacks goals and solidity, statistics like those are impressive. Luke Ayling is 31 in August so now is the perfect time for Leeds to bring in a young and exciting right back to really help kick start Jesse March’s reign
