Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed that Leeds United will be ‘relegation favourites for sure’ if they don’t ‘wisely’ invest in replacing Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips this summer, as he posted on Twitter.

The former Premier League striker pointed out that Arsenal could be signing Raphinha, whilst their star midfielder could be Manchester City-bound – Jack Harrison has liked a post about his teammates’ possible exit.

After the Yorkshire outfit survived relegation to the Championship by the skin of their teeth last season, there will be many nervous faces around Elland Road when the new season kicks off.

It’s growing increasingly likely that Leeds will be without two of their star men, with rumours that a £45-50 million deal for Phillips to join the Premier League champions has been agreed – Gary Lineker thinks it’s great for his progress to work under Pep Guardiola.

Nonetheless, with the transfer rumours circulating about the possible departures of certain Leeds players, this is what Agbonlahor had to say.


Regardless of what happens with Raphinha and Phillips, the club have already brought in three new faces this summer and Jesse Marsch is sure to add in a few more.

When Marcelo Bielsa was in the dugout, it was pretty clear that they needed more depth to their squad because it was something that was hurting this full-throttle and all-action side.

With Marsch now in charge, it was obvious he was going to bulk up the squad, and that has started, but will a few more faces be added if their star duo leave?

Either way, this might be more of a mental battle, more than anything else for Leeds, because next season the senior stars will have to step up, as well as Marsch hoping for some luck with injuries because there were way too many last term.
