Leeds United are interested in bringing striker Marvin Ducksch to Elland Road this summer, according to the Yorkshire Post.
The 24-year-old German striker plays for the 2. Bundesliga side St. Pauli although he has spent the past season on loan at Holstein Kiel.
Ducksch has been a revelation this year, scoring 18 goals and assisting seven in 33 appearances for the German second division club, and he has understandably attracted interest as a result of his goal-scoring exploits.
According to the report, Norwich and Fortuna Dusseldorf are set to fight it out with Leeds to snap up the exciting striker who is valued at £1.58million on Transfermarkt.
While it’s fair to say that the 2. Bundesliga is not as competitive a league as the Championship, anyone with a knack for scoring is worth taking a closer look at.
Averaging over a goal every other game, Ducksch clearly is a natural finisher and averaging four shots per game shows that he has a thirst for hitting the back of the net.
Leeds definitely need reinforcements up front this season and it seems the Abel Hernandez saga is not nearing any sort of conclusion.
With such competition for Hernandez’ signature, it may be wise for Leeds to start looking elsewhere if they need a plan B, and Ducksch could be worth taking a punt on.
