Wolves winger Helder Costa has been reportedly linked with Leeds United, and owner Andrea Radrizzani might have confirmed the same with his social media activity recently after the Italian businessman liked a post showing Helder Costa’s stats in the Championship.
As Marcelo Bielsa looks to put on a team with more quality for securing a top tier promotion next season, there’s a need for more dynamism and Costa fits the bill perfectly.
The wide winger thrived in the Championship since his arrival, scoring 15 goals and laid on 14 assists in 71 games. Thus, playing a significant role in Wolves’ promotion to the top flight.
The Wolves ace has fallen out of favor though since their start of the campaign in the Premier League.
Helder Costa featured 25 times for Wolves this season and scored just one goal. As Wolves boss Nuno prefers a two man attacking line, Costa has fallen way below in the pecking order.
City demands a whopping 20 million pounds to make Jack Harrison permanent, while Tottenham look to snap away Jack Clarke away from Elland road, Costa looks a more viable option for the Whites right now.
Given the talent and trickery that he has to his name, the Portuguese can very well thrive in Bielsa’s system once he gets the attacking freedom.
Signed for 13 million pounds back in 2017, Wolves would demand a price north of the 15 million mark.
There are speculations that Leeds is also ready to take Costa on loan.
Given the demands for a good squad depth by the Leeds boss and a need for invigorating the squad with new faces, Helder Costa would indeed be a good addition.
