Leeds United remain interested in prolific striker Jack Marriott, according to The Yorkshire Post, but face competition from a trio of clubs.
It is unsurprising to see so many teams in the hunt for the 23-year-old after his impressive season at Peterborough United in League One.
Marriott struck a sensational 33 goals in all competitions last season and scooped the golden boot in the third tier after signing from Luton Town last summer.
Posh already face a major battle to keep him with the five aforementioned teams reportedly joined by Premier League side Crystal Palace in admiration of Marriott.
But Peterborough are not prepared to lose their star man on the cheap and will demand £6.5m for his services.
The former Ipswich Town schoolboy is still expected to complete his move away from the ABAX Stadium, though, with a host of clubs tracking him.
Leeds will need to move quickly to snap up Marriott but it looks like they are only holding him as a back-up choice.
Hernandez was expected to join but that has gone a bit quiet, perhaps while they wait for Marcelo Bielsa to be unveiled as the new manager, while Vydra will cost a lot more.
With 33 goals to his name last season, Marriott could well replicate that form in the Championship and the fact that he is still young shows that he has scope to get much better.
