Celtic and Rangers both looking to pip Leeds to signing of 26-year-old striker



Leeds United look to have another fight on their hands for a new player, with both Rangers and Celtic emerging as admirers of Willem II striker Fran Sol.

The 26-year-old has caught the eye over the last few seasons, firing in a half century of goals for the Dutch side, but he is looking to move on in the summer when his contract runs down, with Leeds known admirer of the striker.

However, according to TeamTalk, the Whites might have a scrap on their hands when it comes to landing Sol, with Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic both keen on adding the forward to their ranks.

A lot will depend of course on what the next few months holds for Leeds, as they look to seal a return to the Premier League following their blistering start to the Championship season, and this would indeed give them a big advantage in terms of finances and draw for the player.

Sol though will a choice on his hands no doubt, and he will also be looking to add to his 12 goals this season as he looks to further impress onlooking scouting teams during the winter.

The Verdict

Tough one this for Leeds to digest, but they shouldn’t be too worried about interest from North of the border.

Sure, Celtic can offer Champions League football and decent money, but Leeds are a force themselves and looking like they are well on their way back. Plus, they have Marcelo Bielsa, who will surely be a draw for a player like Sol.
