Leeds are part of three clubs to have made enquiries for Huddersfield striker Nahki Wells this summer, according to a report.
The Daily Mail have claimed on their website that the Yorkshire giants alongside Wolves and Reading have all made their interest in the 27-year-old known to the Terriers.
However, Premier League outfit Burnley are also said to have revived their interest in the forward after needing to appeal on a work permit application needed to secure Abdul Majeed Waris from Lorient before Thursday.
Sean Dyche’s team have already added Chris Wood from Leeds to their striker ranks this summer, but they are thought to be looking for another as they aim for survival in the Premier League once more.
Wells himself bagged a fine 10 goals in 43 matches in the Championship last season as Huddersfield won promotion through the play-offs.
However, he has not played at all for David Wagner’s side in the 2017-18 campaign and has gone into the final year of his contract.
Football Insider verdict:
At the right price Wells could be a very astute signing for Leeds. The forward was once considered a very bright prospect at Bradford, where he bagged 57 times in 155 matches for the Yorkshire club. He was unable to transfer such form with him to Huddersfield, but he has still managed a very commendable return of 49 goals in 153 outings. Under the right coaching Wells could once more rediscover his form from his Bradford days and if that was the case then Leeds could bag themselves a very capable attacker. However, Burnley’s interest would also cause some problems give the offer of Premier League football and more money.
