'Worth a punt' - Leeds fans react to reported interest in Champions League striker

By Danny Wright

Leeds are reportedly in the race to sign Astana striker Junior Kabananga – and fans have taken to Twitter to complain about yet another attacking player being linked with a move to Elland Road.

New outlet TeamTalk has reported that Hull and Nottingham Forest are also in the hunt for the 28-year-old, who is valued at £1.5million by Champions League side Astana.

It is understood that the Whites are in pole position to snap up the DR Congo international and add yet another striker to what is already a rather top-heavy squad.

Chris Wood, Caleb Ekuban, Souleymane Doukara and Marcus Antonsson are already on the books at Elland Road even though manager Thomas Christiansen looks as though he will employ a system which includes a lone striker up front.

That means that should Kabananga join Leeds, they will be inundated with players that are vying for one spot in the first-team, which is likely to be occupied by Wood for most of the campaign.

That appears to be where the worry lies for the Leeds supporters, who seem to prefer it if their club would focus on bolstering their defence before anything else.

However one fan admits that he “could be worth a punt”.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Kabananga will be hoping to help Astana reach the group stages of the Champions League this month, but his side will have to beat Scottish champions Celtic over two legs before he can showcase his talents on a much bigger stage.
