The transfer window is open and Leeds United could reportedly be bolstering their attacking lineup as they have been offered Ligue 1 forward Andy Delort.
The latest on Andy Delort
According to Football Insider, Leeds United have been offered Montpellier striker Delort. The Ligue 1 side are desperate to cash in on the forward this month as the financial crisis in French football continues to hit teams where it hurts.
Should Leeds look to sign the striker?
The Algerian, who is valued at £13.50m on Transfermarkt, has had a solid season this campaign. He has featured 18 times in Ligue 1 in 2020/21, scoring nine goals and picking up six assists (WhoScored). He has been a huge attacking threat, managing three shots per game, by far the most on his team, as well as 1.7 key passes.
Meanwhile, Patrick Bamford has been on great form since Leeds were promoted to the Premier League, scoring ten goals (Transfermarkt). However, club record signing Rodrigo has only scored three goals and Tyler Roberts has scored none.
Football Insider’s report say Delort is “faster than (Kylian) Mbappe”, so perhaps he can bring a different threat to Elland Road.
With Leeds twelfth in the division (SofaScore), someone like Delort could be an ideal signing to bolster the attack and take a bit of pressure off of Bamford and help the club push higher up the table.
