Is Luciano Becchio the answer to Leeds United's goal scoring problems?


The rumour mill has been in full force over the last 24 hours with speculation linking Luciano Becchio with a return to Leeds United from Norwich City.
Becchio left Leeds for Norwich in a swap deal in 2013 with Steve Morison going the opposite way plus approximately £200,000. His time in Norfolk hasn't worked out and a loan spell with Rotherham United was cut short earlier in the season due to an injury to his foot, not before scoring twice in five games. Rotherham are another club that are monitoring the situation and are keen to reunite him at the New York Stadium.
Leeds United's goals have dried up and head coach Neil Redfearn is crying out for Championship proven, quality players. Unfortunately for Neil and Leeds, the owner, Massimo Cellino may see this differently and continue to bring in average players from Seria B which through the winter months has not worked out! The league does not lie!
If Neil was to get his wish, Becchio would give Leeds the work rate that is needed through these tough times and the aerial ability that is lacking and has been since Matt Smith left, which Becchio would bring to the table. His goalscoring record speaks for itself, but would he be the payer that he once was with a distinct lack of game time and the extremely lack of wide players at Leeds to support the striker.

Many fans in the past were glad to see Luciano leave, but he still has a big following at Leeds and would definitely give Elland Road a much needed boost in a time where the only morale seems to be when the fans countdown from 10 and pretend that Leeds have scored a goal!
So is Becchio the answer to Leeds United's goal scoring problems? Only time will tell, but he could be the much needed boost that the players, fans and Neil Redfearn need. There is no doubt that Becchio would relish the chance of a return which in turn could produce the goals to move Leeds up the table.
