The Daily Mail report that Leeds United are looking to strike a deal to sign a striker in the ‘coming days’ after completing a deal for Max Wober – and here are the three contenders that could be on their way to Elland Road:
Three contenders as Leeds look to sign striker in coming days:
Chris Wood (Newcastle)
It seems unlikely but with Alex Isak returning to fitness at Newcastle and Callum Wilson first choice, ex-Leeds striker Wood is expected to return to third-choice option on Tyneside. He may consider an exit, a year after his £25m move.
The 31-year-old is remembered for scoring 44 goals in 88 games for Leeds between 2015 and 2017. Dean Jones has told Give Me Sport that Leeds could re-sign the New Zealand record goalscorer. But this one looks very unlikely.
Viktor Gyokeres (Coventry)
Sweden international Gyokeres, 24, has been in superb form in the Championship. In 25 Championship appearances, he has found the back of the net 12 times. 90Min say Leeds have made an enquiry for the £16million-rated striker.
But Leeds are not alone in pursuit of the Coventry star, who has 18 months remaining on his contract. Coventry will be desperate to keep their top scorer at the club at least, until the end of the current season. But money talks.
Che Adams (Southampton)
Adams, 26, is a player that has been regularly linked with Leeds. Even before he joined Southampton from Birmingham. He has been in decent form and is the only one of the players linked with Leeds, playing regularly in the top flight.
He has eight goals in 18 games this season, but four of those goals have come in two Carabao Cup games. New Saints boss Nathan Jones is keen to improve his options in the final third. The Guardian say Adams is a target for Leeds.
