David Norris thinks Leeds desperately need to sign another striker this summer.
Whilst Marcelo Bielsa has one of the most lethal frontmen at his disposal in Patrick Bamford, an injury to him will leave Leeds short in that department.
Should Leeds sign Cornet?
Bielsa did bring in Rodrigo last summer for a club-record fee from Valencia, but he scored only seven goals in the Premier League last term and was hauled off at half-time at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Leeds have been interested in signing Argentina international Adolfo Gaich from CSKA Moscow, but Tuttomercatoweb believe that the frontman would rather play in Serie A than the Premier League.
Both Bamford and Rodrigo looked out of sorts against Manchester United on Saturday, and Norris exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that a striker needs to be on Marcelo Bielsa’s shopping list:
“As far as signing a player to help Bamford, just in case, that’s something that’s going to be needed.”
