Leeds eyeing two Bournemouth men ahead of summer transfer window


Leeds United ought to start planning for life in the Premier League.

They are second in the Championship and are level on points with leaders West Bromwich Albion.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men take on Fulham this weekend and will move 10 points clear of the London club, in third, if they win.

And they are reportedly keeping an eye on AFC Bournemouth as they prepare for a raid on Eddie Howe’s side.

Football Insider reports that Bielsa’s side are hopeful of strengthening their squad in the summer, looking for a centre-forward, a goalkeeper, a central midfielder, and at least one full-back.

Leeds are reported to be interested in Aaron Ramsdale, the Cherries’ goalkeeper, who has played in every single game this season in the Premier League bar one, a 3-0 defeat to Watford.

Harry Wilson is another potential target though he is not owned by Bournemouth; he has spent the season on loan from Liverpool.


The 23-year-old has made 29 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals and registering two assists.

It appears as though plans are ramping up for Bielsa’s side potentially making the jump to the top-flight.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

This would be some lovely revenge for Leeds.

They have lost players to Bournemouth in the past, seeing Lewis Cook depart in 2016 after he came through the Elland Road club’s academy system.

Bournemouth paid £10 million for his signature, but he has struggled with injuries during his time on the south coast.

Ramsdale and Wilson would both be excellent signings for the Whites if they make the jump, the former in particular.

He is a young goalkeeper with Premier League experience and could duke it out with current first-choice Kiko Casilla for a spot in Bielsa’s XI.

If the deals can be done for a reasonable price, they should be priorities.
