Transfer News: Fulham, Leeds United interested in Morgan Gibbs-White

Fulham and Leeds United are reportedly keeping close tabs on 22-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.

According to TEAMtalk, Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is attracting attention from Leeds United  and London giants Leeds United ahead of the 2022 summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old came through the ranks at the Midlands side, making his debut as a 16-year-old in 2017. He has since made 86 appearances for Wolves, scoring three goals and assisting one more.

Primarily an attacking midfielder, Gibbs-White is versatile enough to serve various roles across the field. It should hold him in good stead in the years to come. Currently, on loan at Championship side Sheffield United, the 22-year-old Englishman played a major role in them finishing fifth in the second division, earning themselves a spot in the playoffs.

Gibbs-White is at the right age to take the next step in his career and there are thankfully clubs who are keeping a keen eye on him. Relegation-threatened Leeds United and Premier League-bound Fulham are two of the clubs interested in him.

Jesse Marsch’s arrival has done little to help Leeds in their efforts to put some distance from the relegation zone. Unless results pick up soon, there is every chance that they will face a fight for survival. Should relegation turn into a reality, it is unlikely that Gibbs-White will be keen to spend another season in the second division by joining Leeds.

Fulham, on the other hand, could present an interesting proposition. Marco Silva’s side have been the standout performers in the Championship this season, and the London giants will now strut their stuff in the Premier League. Silva has built an exciting side that plays good football, and Gibbs-White would thrive in the setup.

His parent club, Wolves are also well aware of the talent they have on their hands. Manager Bruno Lage appears ready to give the 22-year-old a chance at the Molineux next season. With Ruben Neves likely to leave the club in the summer amid interest from Barcelona, there could be an opening for Gibbs-White to exploit in the Wolves roster.

The 22-year-old midfielder has a long-term deal with the Midlands side, and it hands them the advantage when it comes to potential transfer negotiations. Whether Fulham and Leeds make an offer that Wolves cannot refuse or whether Gibbs-White’s future lies at the Molineux will be interesting to see.
