The transfer of Leeds United’s Ilan Mellier is being confirmed.
Mélie is a promising goalkeeper born in 2000 who made his professional debut at Lorient Youth in French Ligue 1. In 2019, he was loaned to Leeds, led by manager Marcello Bielsa, and played an active role.
His biggest strengths are his tall stature and reflexes. He showed a lot of scenes of making saves with his long arms and legs as he was tall, approaching 197cm. In particular, last season Leeds struggled in the relegation zone with 79 goals, second in the league, but Mellie recorded a total of 139 saves during the season, leading the league in saves.
Among them, Mellie set another record this season. According to football statistics company ‘Opta’, Mellie is the youngest goalkeeper in the Premier League to play 100 games at the age of 23 years and 16 days in the 28th round of the English Premier League (EPL) against Wolverhampton on the 18th (Korean time). I even put my name on it.
Mélie continues to perform this season, but his team performance is not holding up. Mélie is the youngest Premier League goalkeeper with 100 appearances, has conceded 54 goals in 30 league appearances and kept five clean sheets, but Leeds are in 16th place with 29 points. 안전놀이터
It’s a close point difference from the relegation zone. Nottingham Forest, currently in 18th place, the bottom line of the league relegation zone, is only two points behind Leeds with 27 points. If Leeds slip in the remaining eight games, they could fall into the relegation zone at any time.
As is the case with relegation aces, Mellie is also becoming a target for many clubs ahead of next season. “Leeds goalkeeper Mellie is being targeted by Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea,” said Ekrem Conour, a European football transfer expert.
Meanwhile, Mélie plans to leave the team even if the team manages to survive relegation. According to Conour, “Mellie is ready to leave the club this summer, even if the club avoids relegation.”
