Scouts from Leeds were in attendance last week to watch the 21-year-old in action against Kilmarnock, in which Erwin scored in a 3-1 victory for the Well.

The striker, who has hit four goals in his last six matches, is also a target for Scottish Premiership champions Celtic and Sheffield Wednesday.

The Whites owner Massimo Cellino announced this week that the transfer embargo has been lifted, meaning the Italian can splash the cash this summer.

After a disappointing campaign in the Championship, Leeds will be looking to strengthen their squad next season and adding quality in the final third is needed.

None of the current Leeds strike force really cemented their place to be one of the first names on the team sheet.

Sheffield Wednesday are also looking to add to their striking department as the new owners are keen to make the South Yorkshire club a force in the Championship next season.

Goals were a problem for the Owls last season and adding a striker is a top priority.

Erwin looks to be one for the future and could spark a battle between the three clubs for his services this summer.
