Leeds tipped for triple raid on relegated Premier League club after Marcelo Bielsa trip

The two clubs will be swapping divisions next season after drastically differing fortunes in the campaign that has just finished.

Leeds romped to the Championship title to end their 16-year exile from the top flight, while Bournemouth suffered an agonising last-day relegation from the Premier League.

Attacking reinforcements are high on the agenda for the Whites amid concerns over their current options.

Patrick Bamford managed 16 goals in their title-winning campaign but his previous spells in the Premier League were miserable, while a dispute is ongoing over RB Leipzig loan flop Jean-Kevin Augustin.

Premier League done deals: Every confirmed transfer this summer so far

Marcelo Bielsa was spotted at Goodison Park on Sunday to watch Bournemouth’s 3-1 victory against Everton, which was not enough to retain their status in the top tier.

And former Leeds full-back Danny Mills believes Cherries trio Callum Wilson, Josh King and David Brooks will be on his radar.

Mills told Football Insider: “They have players like Josh King that have done extremely well.

“Bielsa will only look at the players who would fit his style. Callum Wilson is a possibility as well as David Brooks.

“Wilson, King, Brooks – definitely. You would take all of those players if they became available at the right price. They would certainly do a job in the Premier League next season.”

Leeds have also been linked with former PSG striker Edinson Cavani, who is available on a free transfer.

The Whites have made signings in this summer’s window, which officially opened on Monday.

Helder Costa and Illan Meslier’s loan deals were turned into permanent arrangements.
