Many Leeds United fans have discussed who they would like to see lead the line for the club next season, should they gain promotion to the Premier League.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side missed out on promotion to England’s top flight last season after losing to Derby County in the play-off semi-final, but they have bounced back this term, sitting top of the Championship as things stand.
Form at Elland Road has been excellent this season, despite not having a regular and prolific goalscorer.
Leading the line more than most has been Patrick Bamford, netting 13 goals, but the former Middlesbrough striker has had patches of poor form.
Other than Bamford, Bielsa has relied heavily on his whole squad to find the back of the net with experienced midfielder Pablo Hernandez (6), Jack Harrison (5), Mateusz Klick (5), and former striker Eddie Nketiah (5), all chip in with goals.
Hoping to gain more goals from his frontline, Bielsa did opt to bring in Frenchman Jean-Kevin Augustin during the January transfer window, but the former AS Monaco man has had little impact.
