Croatian striker Dion Beljo could lose patience with Borussia Monchengladbach, potentially opening the door for Leeds United or Newcastle United.
Beljo made a few headlines earlier this month as he outlined his love for both Leeds and Newcastle.
The Osijek striker told Sky Germany that he likes Leeds and even loves Newcastle because of the Goal! films from the 2000’s.
That doesn’t mean any Premier League clubs will fancy signing him but maybe they should be having a look.
Beljo, 20, has been in great form this season with eight goals and two assists in 16 league games for Osijek.
A huge striker at 6ft 4in tall, Beljo has earned comparisons to Erling Haaland and, rather more suitably, Dusan Vlahovic.
Now considered to be one of the top young talents in Croatian football, Beljo is poised for a big move in 2023.
If Leeds or Newcastle fancy giving Beljo a dream move, the door could be open.
Beljo left in limbo over Gladbach move
The main suitor for Beljo in recent months has been Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Bundesliga side looked into signing Beljo over the summer but didn’t pull the trigger and they remain interested.
However, Bild suggest that Beljo could now lose patience with Gladbach if their Marcus Thuram saga doesn’t end soon.
Thuram looks likely to leave in 2023 with his contract expiring at the end of the season.
Yet it’s unclear whether Thuram will simply leave as a free agent or be sold on in January before he can go for nothing.
Gladbach have picked out Beljo as the man to replace Thuram but the striker may now grow a little tired of waiting for Gladbach to realise whether it will be a January or summer move.
That would suggest that Beljo is open to offers and as an exciting, young striker who knows where the net is, he is bound to attract interest from elsewhere.
