Even if the rumours of Kalvin Phillips deporting turn out to be incorrect, Leeds could do with some help in the engine room.
Phillips was last seasons standout player and outside of the top six clubs in England, there aren’t many better at what he does.
However, if Leeds are to strengthen in this summer market, the Whites need to look at key areas of need.
One player who would take the clubs midfield to the next level is midfield maestro Johannes Geis.
The German midfielder is a free agent after a stellar season with FC Koln, making 14 appearances, creating five assists.
Predominantly a holding midfielder, Geis is known for his defensive mindset, ability to break up play and the ability to chip in with a goal or two, Geis could be the perfect player to add to an already talented engine room.
The 25-year old midfielder still has plenty of time to become the hotly tipped midfielder who made over fifty appearances for German youth level.
The former Schalke, Mainz and Sevilla midfielder made over 121 appearances, scoring eight and created another seventeen for his club.
Adding a player like Geis would be an incredible signing for Leeds, who would trade the lacklustre performances of Adam Forshaw to a proven German talent.
Could Geis add some much needed talent to Leeds midfield and make a difference to Bielsa’s squad? Have your say in the comments below.
