Leeds United are in the hunt to sign PAOK striker Aleksandar Prijovic in January, according to a report.

Goal Cyprus claims that a clutch of teams are interested in snapping up Prijovic, 27, including Leeds, as Elland Road manager Thomas Christiansen sets his sights on bolstering his attacking options next month.

It is understood that Prijovic has an £8.8million release clause tied into his contract with PAOK and 15 per cent of that will go to his former club Legia Warsaw should be leave the Greek Super League side.

The report adds that PAOK are yet to receive an offer for the Serbia international forward.

Prijovic has been somewhat of a journeyman in his career and does have experience of playing in the English Football League.

The Swiss-born striker has had spells with Derby, Northampton and Yeovil before playing for the likes of Sion, Djurgardens, Legia and now PAOK, who he joined in January 2016.

This season, the seven-times Serbia international has been in good form, netting 10 goals in 20 appearances across Greece’s domestic competitions and the Europa League.

Football Insider verdict

Christiansen will have a good knowledge of the Greek league from his previous spell as AEK Athens manager, so he may still maintain some links to the nation. Prijovic looks like a decent player and is in good form this season with PAOK. Howevr £8.8million may be a bit too much for the Whites, who have seemed to have focused on making a big number of cheap signings rather than spending big on one. Chris Wood’s sale should have garnered some cash in the summer but some of that may have already been spent. Prijovic has experience in England and can find the net, but the fact that he never seems to spend long at any one club may mean he is worth avoiding.
