Leeds are better off getting defensive reinforcements than splashing out on Konate

Leeds United are interested in signing Amiens forward Moussa Konate according to French news outlet L’Équipe.

What’s the story?

The 25-year-old has only played for Ligue 1 side Amiens for a year but had an impressive spell for the French club, scoring 13 goals in 33 league games.

The Senegal international is now a reported transfer target for Leeds United and Brentford, and the pacy striker who featured at this summer’s World Cup, is valued at £5.4million on Transfermarkt.

Is it necessary?

With Leeds having just spent a decent sum to bring Middlesbrough striker Patrick Bamford to Elland Road and with Kemar Roofe putting in a fine performance against Stoke in the opening game of the season, should Leeds really be spending their limited resources on another striker?

A new centre-back must be the priority with little cover for Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper, and a creative outlet in midfield wouldn’t go amiss.

If Bielsa could bring in a striker on loan that would provide sufficient cover, but it’s not worth bringing in another expensive star when there are other positions that need prior focus.
