Leeds United could do with a striker this summer. Patrick Bamford was sensational last season, but the Englishman needs help up top. Rodrigo and Tyler Roberts are the next available options – but they are currently are best options in the 10 role. So, a new striker is needed, and a race is hotting up.
While Leeds continue to be with midfielders in order to allow Rodrigo to compete with Bamford up top, could it make more sense to sign a striker? The Whites are being linked with the likes of Nahitan Nandez, Rodrigo De Paul and Matheus Cunha. But it might make more sense to sign a striker.
A race is hotting up, and Leeds need to be on red alert for Liverpool ace Origi
A slightly surprising report emerged on Thursday afternoon. Football site 90Min claim that Celtic, Rangers, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Newcastle all want Belgium international Divock Origi. The former Lille ace only managed 180 minutes of Premier League action last term.
While Origi has scored just 35 goals in 157 games for Liverpool – but 94 of those matches have come from the bench. In total, Origi has completed 90 minutes in just 22 of his 157 outings. He needs a club that will give him regular game time and allow him to develop some momentum.
Reports claim Liverpool want a fee between £15million and £20million to let Origi go. So, instead of spending fees of £30million on Cunha – Leeds would surely be better served going after a proven Premier League goalscorer. Battling numerous clubs, Leeds should really consider Origi.
