Leeds United plot ambitious move for Premier League striker

By Mark Peters IN Archive,General - 19:50 Jan 25th 2016
 

Victory over Bristol City on Saturday moved Leeds to within 11 points of the playoffs, but they will need plenty more wins between now and the end of the season if they are to make the top-six.

Scoring goals has been the Elland Road outfit’s main problem this term, with just 28 in as many Championship games, so they are clearly in the market for a striker.

DWIGHT GAYLE

One player thought to be high on Steve Evans’ list of potential targets is Crystal Palace’s Dwight Gayle, though the frontman is not short of admirers.

Opportunities have proven hard to come by for the 26-year-old since he made the switch to Selhurst Park, with 32 of his 55 top-flight appearances coming as a substitute:

Despite this lack of playing time, however, Gayle has still managed a total of 12 Premier League goals during his two full seasons at the club.

Confident, lively and a composed finisher, the striker netted 13 times in 29 matches during his only season of Championship football at Peterborough back in 2012/13, helping his side to average an extra 0.5 goals per game when he featured:
