According to Gloucestershire Live Leeds United will have scouts at Crewe Alexandra on Saturday to monitor one of the hottest talents in League Two. Cheltenham’s Mo Eisa has bagged 25 goals in a very good season for the player as he bagged four of the awards at the end of season awards night.
The 23-year-old has been turning heads with his ability in front of goal and blistering pace. This was his first full season in full-time football and he’s adapted remarkably well, this sort of situation has been seized upon by bigger clubs in recent years and it seems Leeds might not want to miss out on this one. However they won’t be the only scouts at the game, in fact a host of Championship clubs will be watching the player according to the report which indicates it’s highly likely that he will be playing his last game for the club at Crewe. Four Premier League clubs are supposedly tracking the player and why not when the likes of Jamie Vardy and Dwight Gayle have shown the gap can be bridged if you are given the chance.
The report also suggests a fee for the player would be higher than £1 million. He signed for Cheltenham from non-league Greenwich Borough less than a year ago and has made his mark. He broke the record for league goals in a season for the club which was set at 20, with more than a few games to spare. The Sudan-born forward will be heading up the leagues this season and perhaps Leeds see him as a player who can step-up like he has this season. We are seriously lacking in the forward ranks with our top scorer on 13, which includes a hat-trick in the League Cup and he isn’t even a player who is played up front at times. It’s been a season of struggles for the club and fans crave proven players, this doesn’t fall into that category but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work.
