Leeds United will be playing Premier League football next season.
They lifted the Championship trophy on Wednesday night after a thumping 4-0 win over Charlton Athletic.
That result ensured that Lee Bowyer’s men dropped into League One, and left Leeds with 93 points from 46 games, 10 clear of second-placed West Bromwich Albion, who also secured promotion in midweek.
Next season, then, will be the first time that the club have played top-flight football in 16 years.
Since then, it has been an uphill struggle to return but, under Marcelo Bielsa, they have managed to climb the summit once again.
The summer transfer window, then, offers a major opportunity for the Whites.
If they are to stay in the top-flight, then, they likely need to spend, and it appears that targets are already being identified.
The Sun claims that they are lining up a swoop for QPR attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze after sealing their promotion.
The England Under-21 international has been in exceptional form for the London club, scoring 14 goals and registering eight assists in 46 games this term.
GIVEMESPORT understands that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Eze but it appears that Leeds are also in the race.
The Sun claims that they made an enquiry for the playmaker in January and told QPR that they would make a bid if they sealed promotion.
Eze is valued at £20 million and there is also interest from West Ham United and Crystal Palace in his services, per the report.
Bielsa, it is said, wants him to be the creative force in his Leeds squad next season.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
Signing Eze would be an astonishing coup for Leeds.
He has been in exceptional form all season and, at the age of 22, is only likely to keep improving.
Now that Leeds are a Premier League club, they are already wrestling with the big boys and beating Spurs to the punch would be a huge result for the club.
They need a long-term successor to Pablo Hernandez, who is 35, and Eze would be a brilliant option.
He can break between lines, play clever passes, and also has an eye for goal.
He would be guaranteed game time at Elland Road if he did make the jump to Leeds, and that has to hold major sway for the youngster.
It would be a major statement of intent after their promotion; Leeds should pull out all the stops to secure his signature.News Now - Sport News
