Leeds look set to bolster a previously dwindling attack with the signing of Chievo forward Caleb Ekuban, according to the YEP.
The report states that the young forward is set to fly to England over the next 48 hours as Leeds and Chievo reached advanced talks.
In a move that is completely out of the blue, Leeds could be set to add another forward to support Chris Wood as Leeds target the playoffs in the 17/18 Championship season.
The club struggled for goals in the final third of the season as they depended on top scorer Chris Wood who hit 26 out of the total of 56 Championship goals Leeds scored.
The hope is that Ekuban can add to Leeds' tally having been identified as a potential solution to their goal scoring issues.
The 23-year old spent last season in the Albanian top league scoring 17 goals for Partizani Tirana but has never featured for his parent club.
With 12 months now remaining in his deal, it's expected that Leeds will pay off the remainder of his deal in order to sign him prior to their departure to their Austrian training camp on Friday.
Ekubian is set to be the second transfer to conclude this week after the pending announcement of Samuel Saiz from Huesca, another attacking player able to add plenty of goals to Leeds' cause.
The forward who boasts not only strength but bags of pace will now join first team strikers Chris Wood, Marcus Antonsson and the newly rejuvenated Lee Erwin in a bolstered Leeds attacking lineup.
Could Leeds be back to winning ways with more goals as Thomas Christiansen's new side starts the Championship season? We think so!
