Five Leeds stars who could be axed in summer transfer window as star man ‘dreams’ of Champions League move | The Sun

LEEDS are in serious danger of being relegated to the Championship, meaning several players could be set to leave the club.

The Whites sit 18th in the Premier League table, one point adrift of safety with two games to go.

Interim boss Sam Allardyce is a mastermind at keeping sides up and faces games against West Ham and Tottenham to save their top-flight status.

With Southampton relegated and Leicester on the verge of going, many believe one of Leeds, Everton and Nottingham Forest will join them.

After a chaotic season at Elland Road a number of clubs will look to take advantage and will have certain players on their summer shopping lists whether Leeds beat the drop or not.

Wilfried Gnonto

The teenager, 19, joined from Zurich last summer but he has big aspirations of playing Champions League football one day.

He is boyhood Inter Milan fan and said in an interview it is his dream to play for the club.

And he could make it after impressing in his debut year in the Premier League.

Gnonto may have only scored four times, but the attacker's energetic displays and technique have really caught the eye.

Leeds fans fumed when Javi Gracia refused to start him and more have called for him to get more minutes under Big Sam, this won't leave such a talent happy.

Illan Meslier

The goalkeeper has had a shaky season for Leeds, conceding 67 goals this season, more than any other stopper.

Despite not being helped by his defence, Meslier made several high-profile mistakes in recent weeks and Allardyce has dropped him for Joel Robles.

The 23-year-old signed by Marcelo Bielsa without a doubt has potential and has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Manchester United in the past.

His Leeds spell could be over due to his bad form and he would be a lucrative asset to sell if the club went down.

Weston McKennie

The American midfielder joined the club in January on loan from Juventus due to his links with ex-boss Jesse Marsch.

Leeds reportedly have the option to make the signing permanent for £30million.

But they certainly won't be able to afford that if they get relegated and he has also failed to perform consistently.

McKennie could be in line for another new club this summer as he is surplus to requirements at Juve.


Rodrigo has been one of few shining lights for Leeds in a bleak season.

The Spaniard has netted 14 goals in all competitions this term.

Rodrigo, 32, is an experienced attacker and sees his deal expire at Elland Road in the summer of 2024.

Prem and European sides could fancy a move as Leeds may be forced to to cash-in before losing him on a free.

Tyler Adams

Adams will have no shortage of suitors should Leeds get relegated or stay in the league.

The 24-year-old has been linked with switches to both Arsenal and Newcastle.

Adams captained the Unites States at the World Cup last year and has Champions League experience, having played for RB Leipzig.

The combative midfielder only joined Leeds last summer and has a contract until 2027, but it seems unlikely he would stay put to play in the Championship if the worst happens.
