Leeds United are the latest club interested in signing Jordan Hugill, according to The Sun.
West Ham United are willing to let Hugill leave the club this summer and Leeds are eyeing a loan deal.
Hugill is an outcast at West Ham, having moved to East London from Preston on deadline day last January.
He has featured just three times – all of which were short substitute cameos – and he is behind Marko Arnautovic, Javier Hernandez and Andy Carroll in the pecking order.
The Hammers will let him go and he is interesting Leeds, who are trying to sign at least one new striker this summer.
The former Port Vale forward scored 12 in 44 games during the 2016/17 season for Preston, and then followed that up with eight in 27 games before his switch to West Ham.
But with his first-team prospects looking unlikely at The London Stadium, a move back to the Championship looks likely.
Hugill is not the big name that Leeds were hoping for but signing him on loan could be a solid cheap option for the Whites.
His power and willingness to run works well for Marcelo Bielsa and he can add a different dimension up top.
Having Hugill as the centre-forward with the likes of Pablo Hernandez and Matej Vydra slotting in behind would make Leeds a very dangerous attacking threat.
