Leeds narrowly avoided relegation this season, a 2 - 1 win against Brentford on the last day and Burnley losing 2 - 1 to Newcastle sealing Jesse Marsch’s men safety. To avoid such a relegation scrap next season, Leeds will need to strengthen in a lot of areas on the pitch. The potential departure of Raphinha means that attack is one of these areas, which is where Cornet may come in.
Raphinha was Leeds’ top scorer this season with 11 goals in 36 games, which averages out to 0.33 goals per 90 minutes, a good return for the Brazilian. Cornet, on the other hand, has nine goals in only 28 games, making his average goals per 90 minutes 0.43, a return that could increase if given more game time.
Overall, the addition of Cornet to the Leeds squad could strengthen it, something the Elland Road faithful will be hoping for as they look to avoid such a close flirtation with relegation back to the Championship.
Cornet is priced at 16/1 to make the switch from Turf Moor to Elland Road.
