Sky Bet Championship side Leeds United are targeting Leicester City’s Tom Lawrence, who is currently on loan at Championship rival Ipswich Town, according to reliable journalist Joe Rawson.
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has been one of the standout performers in the Championship this season for struggling Ipswich Town.
Lawrence has been supremely effective in the second striker role; the Welsh international has scored five times and provided five assists in twenty-one Championship appearances.
The Welsh international midfielder has been attracting attention from a number of suitors who are considering prising Lawrence away from Leicester City.
Tom Lawrence may choose to go from one end of the Championship table to the other with Leeds United expressing their interest in signing the goal scoring midfielder.
Leeds United, however, will have to see off interest from the Premier League as Sunderland are set to rival Leeds United for Tom Lawrence’s signature.
It is expected that Leicester City will recall Tom Lawrence from Ipswich Town and the Premier League champions could sell the 23-year-old permanently before the transfer window shuts.
