6 goals, 7 assists – Leeds United signing this League One sensation would be a game-changer for sure

Why should Leeds United sign Ronan Curtis from Portsmouth

According to Leeds Live, Leeds United have been linked with a swoop for Irish winger Ronan Curtis, who is currently playing for League One club Portsmouth. Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa is plotting a January move for the player amidst the mounting injury list in his squad.

They are going to face competition from established Premier League clubs Leicester City and Brighton for the signature of the youngster.

Having spent three years in Northern Irish club Derry City’s first-team after devoting his youth years at the club, Curtis moved to Portsmouth in the summer and has impressed many. This is his first season in English football and he seems to adapt to the nature of the game quickly.

He has netted 6 goals and supplied 7 assists in 17 games for the Pompey, a more than decent start for a player in his first season at the club. The 22-year-old has also made eight appearances for the Republic of Ireland U21, scoring a goal in the process.

Here’s why Leeds United should sign him in the winter window:

Ronan Curtis’ unpredictability could be a difference-maker

Predominantly a left winger, Curtis is adept at playing in any position across the front line. He has an acute eye for the goal and tends to pick key passes from the areas close to the opposition box.

As mentioned above, he is been involved in 13 goals this season in just 17 games – just a phenomenal beginning to his career in England.

With injuries mounting on the heads of Leeds United manager, it is imperative for them to spend money in January and add quality players to their squad.

Curtis can add unpredictability, directness and competition for places within the team, which is always going to help other players.

Furthermore, the Peacocks are aiming for a Premier League promotion push this year, and for that reason, adding a prodigious talent to the team is going to aid them. Having a squad with various propensities would help the manager to rotate the team whenever required and not compromise on the quality.

If they buy Ronan Curtis, the Argentine will be able to offer depth, especially knowing that Ezgjan Alioski’s performances on the left wing haven’t been up to the scratch.
