Daniel Farke's Leeds United transfer need could be solved after international switch

Leeds United could find themselves looking for not one but two wingers this summer, with Daniel Farke facing the prospect of replacing both Crysencio Summerville and Willy Gnonto.

Both have been linked with big-money moves away from Elland Road before the Championship campaign gets under way in mid-August with that home game against Portsmouth. Farke is likely to still have Welsh international Dan James in his squad, with the former Manchester United man showing last season what a valuable asset he is.

However, Leeds have been linked with several left-sided players as they face up to the possibility of having to replace Summerville. While there has been no firm bid for the Dutchman yet, Brighton have made an enquiry, while Crystal Palace have been linked with a move once Michael Olise transfer to Bayern Munich goes through.

Liverpool and Chelsea are yet to show their hand when to comes to the £35m-rated star, but both are expected to be interested should a deal be on the cards. Leeds will be ready to strike should they need to, with likely candidates already lined up.

One such link is Canadian winger Liam Millar, who performed so well on loan at Preston North End last season. The 24-year-old is set to leave parent club Basel this summer and return to England in a permement move, with Sheffield United also said to be interested.

He is currently on Copa America duty for his country under former Leeds boss Jesse Marsch, and Farke will no doubt have taken note of his starting position in their 1-0 victory over Peru. While predominantly a left-side forward, Millar played the first 45 minutes of the win which took Canada second in Group A behind Argentina.

It highlights a key trait which could benefit Leeds should they decide to firm up any interest with a bid for the former Livepool wideman. Being able to play on either flank would give Farke flexibility and could mean one less transfer to find in what will be a busy summer.
