Leeds United director of football Victor Orta must be in the hunt to sign a new forward in the summer after all the replacements for Chris Wood failed to find the net on a regular basis this season.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga, Caleb Ekuban and Jay-Roy Grot have all been miles off expectations and Leeds should be looking for someone who can get at least 20 goals in a season.
Leeds’ solution lies at Derby as the Telegraph has reported that Matej Vydra is set to be sold by the East Midlands club after they crashed out of the Championship play-off semi-finals with a defeat to Fulham.
Vydra, 26, has been in stunning form this season for Derby, scoring 22 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions.
The Czech Republic international is also a proven goalscorer in the Championship with 65 goals in 187 appearances in the second-tier across spells at Watford, Reading and Derby.
He would make a massive difference at Elland Road and it is understood that he would be worth £8million in the summer as the Rams look to slash their spending.
A bid worth £8million could be all it takes for Leeds to snap up a goal machine who is bound to help fire them back to the Premier League.
