Leeds United are reportedly ready to hijack Sunderland and Portsmouth’s attempts to sign a highly-rated Cheltenham striker.
New Elland Road boss Marcelo Bielsa has put the signing of a new frontman near the top of his wishlist, as the Yorkshire club aim to mount a significant promotion push this season.
Matej Vydra and Abel Hernandez have both been linked with moves to Leeds, but it has been a frustrating transfer window for Bielsea so far – with major Brentford target Florian Jozefzoon opting to join Championship rivals Derby instead.
Jerry Mbakogu’s move from Capri also appears to be dead, but according to a report by The News, Cheltenham star Mo Eisa is now on the Argentine’s radar.
The Portsmouth media outlet are claiming that the difficulty that Pompey and the Black Cats are facing in trying to get the Robins to accept an offer for their star man could well leave the door open for Leeds to swoop.
