Ian Wright runs the rule over Leeds United’s vast options in the January transfer window



Ian Wright has picked out Andre Gray and Dwight Gayle as the ideal targets for Leeds United.

The Whites are determined to sign a striker this month following Arsenal’s decision to recall Eddie Nketiah from his loan spell at Elland Road.

A number of players have been linked with a move to Yorkshire with the likes of Che Adams, Billy Sharp and most recently Britt Assombalonga all linked.

However according to the former Arsenal striker, there’s two candidates who should be regarded as the best options.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5Live, quoted by Leeds Live, Wright said: “Someone like Andre Gray, will he be the one?

“I’ve seen some of his finishing and going into a place like Leeds, and them needing someone who is going to be a goalscorer, to put away that one chance, and maybe he could be that guy.

“He scored a lot of goals at Burnley, he’s not been so prolific at Watford.

“But if they brought him, I don’t know if he might be the answer, but I’m not sure he’ll be the one. Dwight Gayle would be perfect for Leeds.”

The verdict

It’s been an incredibly frustrating month so far for Leeds United.

The need for a striker is clear for all to see with the Whites struggling for form in recent weeks.

Patrick Bamford is a decent striker but certainly needs competition for his place if Leeds are to get themselves over the line in their hunt for promotion.

Leeds stumbled late last season and we’re already starting to see the nerves kick in as this year’s promotion hunt start to reach the business end.

If a striker isn’t found, you do worry about whether Marcelo Bielsa’s side will have the depth to get the job done.
