Leeds attacker Tyler Roberts is a wanted man with five Championship clubs looking to loan him out this summer.
Los Blancos signed an attacking midfielder in Brenden Aaronson this summer and a striker should be on the way soon.
Whether that’s Arnaud Kalimuendo or someone else, Leeds simply need to add another striker – but that will spell trouble for Tyler Roberts.
The Wales international plays as a number 10 or forward but his chances of a first-team cap could dwindle.
Leeds striker Tyler Roberts is a wanted man
Roberts, 23, started just seven Premier League games for Leeds last season and averaged just 979 minutes in the top flight.
For an attacking player to score just nine goals in 108 games across all competitions is a truly dismal record.
A great presser, Roberts was hailed as a “serious player” by Marcelo Bielsa, who loved Roberts’ personality, character and maturity from a young age.
However, the end product just wasn’t there and Bielsa would often call Roberts off the bench to groans and groans from Leeds fans.
With the World Cup looming, Roberts wants to play to shine for Wales – and he’s keenly interested at the moment.
The Daily Mail report that Queens Park Rangers and Hull City have both been in touch to try to loan Roberts out in view of a permanent deal.
As is often the case, Roberts now has interest from elsewhere as well, with Birmingham City, Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town all interested.
You can imagine many other Championship clubs will now join the hunt for Roberts, who has two years left on his Leeds deal.
Leeds paid £2.5m which rose to £4m in 2018 and may feel that their investment has not worked out quite as planned; Now there’s a real chance for Roberts to go somewhere else and shine.
