Wainman doesn’t believe that Leeds will sign a striker this summer

Just Joe Football show presenter Joe Wainman doesn’t believe that Leeds United will sign a striker this summer.

Leeds have been linked with a move for CSKA Moscow striker Adolfo Gaich, who has one cap for Argentina, and TuttoMercatoWeb previously reported that the Whites had made an offer for the 22-year-old.

Last season Gaich featured in 33 games for CSKA Moscow and also Benevento Calcio where he had a loan spell and scored three goals in all competitions.

Whilst Leeds have been linked with Gaich, Wainman can’t see the club purchasing a striker this summer, telling Football FanCast: “Maybe in an ideal scenario if money wasn’t an object we could go and get another striker. 

“With Bielsa, he sees Tyler Roberts as being a backup to Bamford and of course Rodrigo can play there as well, and I just think in this current window any links to a striker are wide of the mark for me.

“I think the key areas Leeds are focusing on now after getting the left-back is centre-midfield and a winger.”

One midfield player that Leeds have been linked with this summer is Huddersfield Town’s Lewis O’Brien, with the Yorkshire Evening Post reporting earlier this month that they understand that the two clubs aren’t a million miles apart in their valuation.

If O’Brien does sign for Leeds, he will join Junior Firpo, Jack Harrison, Kristoffer Klaesson and Lewis Bate at Elland Road after all penned permanent deals with the club this summer.
