Leeds fans are absolutely furious on Twitter after one reliable journalist said the club has cooled its interest in Matej Vydra.
In the summer of 2016, Marcelo Bielsa left Lazio after just two days in charge over a dispute about summer transfers, and Leeds fans are getting anxious waiting for some new signings for their new boss.
Bielsa has been targeting a new goalscorer since he joined, with links to Jerry Mbakogu, Abel Hernandez and Vydra cropping up constantly.
Vydra is undoubtedly the man most fans want, as the Derby man scored 21 times in the Championship last season.

The club has been crying out for a proven goalscorer since losing Chris Wood, but Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post says it’s “not looking promising” that Vydra will be that man, as the striker’s wage demands have halted the deal.
The deal for Hernandez seems to have slowed down over wage demands as well, and fans are now fearing the worst for the season ahead. Getting a striker should absolutely be the club’s top objective, and they’re failing miserably at the moment.
Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta simply must get this transfer window right, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions to the latest bad news down below…
Can't see bielsa sticking around if we don't sign any of his requested targets

I think he left Lazio after 48 hours for this same reason. At least we've beaten that. #lufc

Vydra = Unlikely
Hernandez = Too pricey now
Stockdale = Measly loan offer
Bartley = Meh
This isn’t going well is it?

Distancing ourselves after season ticket sales have all but met their targets, intriguingly

Makes you think the recruitment team have no bloody idea on current wages why go for Stockdale Hernandez Vydra if we have no intention of paying these wage structures – can guarantee size of this squad is gonna bite us in the arse before Christmas

Shock. Linked with quality, then falls through. Meanwhile forest are smashing it.

I’m genuinely worried that Bielsa will walk if we don’t bring in some quality striker very soon.

I sense an embarrassing signing soon. As usual.
