Leeds United: Alex Crook drops striker update

Leeds United: Alex Crook drops striker update -Leeds United News

TalkSPORT journalist Alex Crook has claimed that Leeds United have now made a bid for an unnamed striker.

The Lowdown: Forward hunt

Victor Orta has already brought in six players ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge at a combined cost of £95m.

However, it seems as if the club’s summer spending will surpass £100m for the first time in their history, with a new forward wanted at Elland Road.

Club Brugge star Charles De Ketelaere and Paris Saint-Germain’s Arnaud Kalimuendo have both been linked with Leeds in recent weeks, and it looks as if the Whites have made their move when it comes to another attacking arrival.

The Latest: Crook’s comments

Talking to GiveMeSport, Crook said that he’s ‘been told’ that Leeds have made a bid for a striker. However, the journalist didn’t name who that forward is.

“I have been told they’ve got a bid in for an unnamed striker.

“I don’t know who that is, but they want a bit of cover and a bit of competition for Patrick Bamford.”

The Verdict: Needed

Patrick Bamford made just seven Premier League starts last season due to a number of different injuries, which resulted in Marsch relying on youngster Joe Gelhardt for the run in.

Happy with Orta's business so far?

Yes, 100%

I'm not so sure!

Rodrigo has also been used in a deeper role, and with Tyler Roberts recently joining QPR on a season-long loan, a new senior centre-forward is definitely required.

It could be Orta’s most important deal of the summer so far, and if he can get the signing spot on to challenge both Bamford and Gelhardt, it should put Leeds in good shape for the new campaign.
