With a potential transfer to Plymouth Argyle this month, competition is heating up for in-demand attacker Morgan Whittaker, and Leeds United must be keen to acquire the gifted player.
Whittaker, 21, assisted on 16 goals in 31 appearances while on loan at Plymouth in League One during the first part of the previous campaign. January saw him return to Swansea, although he had contributed enough to Plymouth’s advancement.
Plymouth made the decision to permanently sign him from Swansea in the summer, but it hasn’t worked out well for the Welsh team. For Plymouth, one of the top teams in the League, he has excelled.
Whittaker, who can play up top or on the left as well, has contributed to a whopping 21 goals thus far. He has scored 15 of them himself and assisted on another six. Six in his previous six league outings.
Top-tier and Championship teams, including Atalanta of the Serie A, are reportedly keeping an eye on Whittaker, according to The Mail’s Confidential page. The English second division has been identified by the Italians as a scouting pool.
Morgan Whittaker, the star of Plymouth, needs Leeds to be in the running.
Jordan James of Birmingham is also a target. Now that Whittaker is drawing interest and Leeds has to be in the running to recruit him, the former manager Russell Martin called him “fantastic.”
He must be a target at the end of the season, regardless of if Leeds moves this month or not, regardless of whether we are in the Premier League or the Championship. Even at the age of 21, his numbers are impressive, and he has talent.
Given that he is now having difficulty playing, Willy Gnonto is probably on his way come summertime. Jaidon Anthony’s loan is temporary. Whittaker replaces them and gives the top line more depth.
Leeds must be among the Championship clubs hoping to sign Whittaker because he would be an incredible addition. Right now, it’s unknown how much Plymouth would charge for their best player.
