Leeds United could be set to complete a last ditch move for striker Moussa Konate.
The Senegalese striker has just returned to club football having represented his nation at this years World Cup, making two appearances from the bench.
The Whites are said to be ready to offer a fee of around £6million as they look to wrap up their final moves before tomorrow’s transfer deadline.
The 25-year old has adapted to two positions during his career, with one being as a striker and the other playing wide on the right.
Prior to his move to Amiens, Konate was quite the nomadic forward, representing an array of clubs across the globe including Maccabi Tel Aviv, Krasnodar, Sion and a loan move to Seria A side Genoa.
It was Konate’s three years at F.C. Sion where he truly put himself on the map with 50 goals in 115 appearances for the Swiss side.
Leeds are looking to improve their forward line that currently boasts Patrick Bamford, Kemar Roofe, youngster Ryan Edmondson and the currently unwanted Caleb Ekuban.
With a high tempo and pressing game, Leeds will need plenty of options upfront if they are to keep this going all season and the partnership of Victor Orta and Marcelo Bielsa believe Konate could be the perfect addition.
Do you think Konate could be a good signing or are Leeds taking another risk purchasing foreign talent? Have your say in the comments below.
