Leeds United could do with another forward in the January transfer window, and the club should consider a move for Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Benny Ashley-Seal.
Leeds sit third in the Championship table ahead of the return of domestic action this weekend, and Marcelo Bielsa’s side are actually the second-highest scorers in the Championship this season behind West Bromwich Albion.
Kemar Roofe has seven Championship goals to his name this term, but the majority of the other strikes have been shared around.
Bielsa recently admitted that it would be difficult for his team to sign any new players during the January transfer window, but the loan market should be considered.
And Wolves teenager Ashley-Seal could turn out to be a very smart signing.
The 19-year-old has been in red-hot form for Wolves’ Under-23 outfit this term, and might well be available on a short-term basis at the start of 2019.
Ashley-Seal has struck 10 times in just six Premier League 2 appearances for Wolves’ Under-23 side this season.
The forward also made his first-team debut for Wolves earlier this season, appearing in the second round of the EFL Cup against Sheffield Wednesday before also featuring against Leicester City in round three.
Ashley-Seal is unlikely to see too much first-team action in the coming months, however, and a loan move to a Championship club certainly makes sense.

The former Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur youngster has bags of pace and power, while his goalscoring record this season has to be respected.
Ashley-Seal is destined to become a first-team star at Wolves, but he could certainly help fire Leeds to the Premier League in the second half of the 2018-19 campaign.
