Leeds need to sign Mbaye Diagne after Vydra blow

Leeds need to sign Mbaye Diagne after Vydra blow

Leeds’ hunt for a striker is seemingly going to continue for much of the window. 

The Yorkshire club have struggled to find a forward to lead Bielsa’s forward line. For weeks the club has been linked with a move for Derby County striker Matej Vydra but it seems a deal for the attacker is stalling as he holds out for a move to a Premier League club.

With that in mind, Leeds have now turned their attention to Kasimpasa SK striker, Mbaye Diagne according to Turkish Football.

The Breakdown

The Senegalese striker has scored 12 goals and provided two assists in 17 appearances for Kasimpasa last season according to Transfermarkt. Having only spent six months at the club and with a further three years left on his deal, it would seem that getting deal wrapped up for the striker may require a reasonable fee.

The tall six foot three forward, is now on Leeds’ radar having missed out on Bobby Reid, Abel Hernandez and most recently, Matej Vydra.

The forward may not have a great record in one of Europe’s top leagues but at this stage in the transfer window, a striker with 12 goals in 17 games in a league that is still competitive, may just turn out as a success for Leeds.

The club don’t have many options up front and with the time running out to strengthen up front Leeds might just have to take the deal.

Diagne may not be the name that Leeds fans want but he might just have to do.

Thoughts Leeds fans?
