Leeds United have reportedly placed RB Salzburg forward Noah Okafor at the top of their January wish-list.
The Lowdown: Leeds interest
The Whites have recently been linked with a move for Okafor, who previously contributed to 17 goals in 44 games under Jesse Marsch in Austria. Reports have claimed that Leeds and AC Milan both want the Switzerland international after his fine start to the season.
The Latest: Salzburg insider
Salzburg insider Don Mitchell took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to make a claim on Okafor.
He said that Okafor moving to the UK in the winter is ‘very likely’, adding that the forward is ‘closely followed by Leeds’ and has been ‘told’ he is the Whites’ ‘top target’.
The Verdict: More realistic?
Leeds may still need to battle Milan for the forward, but hopefully, the lure of the Premier League and a reunion with Marsch could tempt Okafor, making this link one to keep an eye on.
