Leeds fans agree a new striker is needed

According to Yorkshire Evening Post chief football writer Phil Hay, Leeds United are in the market for a new forward ahead of the start of the 2017-18 Championship season.

Head coach Thomas Christiansen has already boosted his attack with the likes of Samu Saiz, Hadi Sackho and Caleb Ekuban in this summer’s transfer window, but it is being reported that the 44-year-old wants another forward to help leading man Chris Wood.

Souleymane Doukara and Marcus Antonsson are still with the Whites, although it is understood that both could leave the Championship club before the end of next month.

Leeds supporters are in agreement that their club needs a new striker before the transfer window slams shut, and there have been some interesting names thrown into the mix.

Huddersfield Town’s Nakhi Wells and Liverpool’s Danny Ings have both been mentioned, in addition to Brighton & Hove Albion forward Glenn Murray.

One player that will seemingly not be arriving at Elland Road this summer is Valencia striker Alvaro Negredo, however, with the 31-year-old being deemed ‘too expensive’ for the Championship side.
