Leeds United are one of the Premier League sides to have made an enquiry about Coventry City striker Viktor Gyokeres, according to a report from 90min.

The Elland Road faithful would love to see a new forward join the club during the January transfer window. It looks to be one of the areas where we look to be particularly weak.

Patrick Bamford has been out for much of the last 12 months with injury. Meanwhile, Rodrigo’s stunning form before the World Cup was the anomaly from his time at Leeds. And Joe Gelhardt has struggled to stand out this season.

Leeds make Gyokeres enquiry

Not signing another striker would be a real gamble. And it does appear that the Leeds hierarchy do believe that they need to look at what is available on the market.

According to 90min, Leeds are one of the sides to have asked about Gyokeres. Everton, Brentford, Crystal Palace and Wolves have also made their approaches for the 24-year-old.

He will not come cheap. Gyokeres is currently the joint top goalscorer in the Championship this season, with 12 goals so far. And 90min suggests that he will cost around £16 million.

Of course, we are unlikely to be splashing the cash in a big way in January. However, saving the pennies next month could be incredibly costly if it means that we are relegated.

We need another left-back and a striker as a minimum. And Gyokeres would tick a lot of boxes. He is in form. And he has a very good record in England, scoring 30 goals since the start of last season.

Mark Robins has previously suggested that he has ‘unbelievable‘ ability. And if Leeds do not move, another of their Premier League rivals is seemingly waiting in the wings.
