Leeds United managed to secure all three points against Bolton Wanderers yesterday as Patrick Bamford came off the substitutes’ bench to save the day.
The Whites are now one step closer to securing automatic promotion to the Premier League, as Marcelo Bielsa continues to work wonders at Elland Road. And, it appears as if the Yorkshire club are eyeing a possible addition, as according to The Mirror’s transfer news live blog (15/12, 13:08), Leeds have checked on Fran Sol.
Leeds are understood to have been tracking the 26-year-old, but the likes of Burnley, Cardiff, Huddersfield, Celtic, Derby, Rangers and Swansea are also taking an interest.
Indeed, the forward has been prolific in the current campaign at current club Willem II, having scored 15 goals in 18 appearances over in Holland.
Sol is nominally out-of-contract at the end of the season, although there is a one-year option in favour of his club who are certain to activate it given his current form.
Fran Sol, who is valued at £3.6 million (by Transfermarkt), has shown that he can guarantee goals at the pinnacle of the attack this season, so it comes as no surprise that Leeds have been monitoring him.
Kemar Roofe has been on fire in the current campaign but with a number of clubs possibly trying to lure him away in the January transfer window, moving for Sol would be a smart move.
