Something special seems to be taking place at Leeds under Garry Monk, with the Yorkshire club mounting a serious bid to return to the Premier League.
Maintaining their place in the playoff positions will not be easy, however, particularly if injuries and suspensions hit hard during the second half of the campaign.
It is therefore important that the squad is strengthened in January, with reports in The Sun linking the Elland Road outfit with a move for Ashley Fletcher.
Valued at around £2m by West Ham, the Keighley-born striker has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League, failing to score in any of his ten appearances to date:
|POS: FWD||AGE: 21Y 2M|
|HEIGHT: 6FT 1IN||WEIGHT: 12ST 3LB|
|L1 | Barnsley | 15/16||16/17 | West Ham | PL|
The 21-year-old proved that he has plenty to offer during a loan spell at Barnsley last season, however, making a direct contribution to 11 goals in 24 games as his side were promoted via the League One playoffs.
Thirteen teams have found the net more often than Leeds in the Championship this season, so adding another source of goals to their squad is a must.
