Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is trying to bring in a new striker to Elland Road on transfer deadline day.

The Yorkshire giants have signed ten new players to strengthen Garry Monk’s squad this summer, but the results on the pitch have not been up to mark so far this season.

However, Leeds are still in the market for more personnel, and have been linked with a swoop for a number of players across Europe as the club look to do a few last minute deals.

And according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds owner Cellino is intending to add more firepower to Monk’s squad, and is looking to sign a centre forward before the clock strikes 11 PM tonight.

Monk identified adding more strength to their attacking reserves this season as one of Leeds’ priorities, and despite a raft of new attacking joining, the club are still in the market for a striker.  


While it is unclear who the Leeds owner is looking to bring in, the Italian is determined to provide options to the new manager up front to help the Whites become promotion contenders.

Monk has been talking about the need for more players, and it seems Cellino agrees with the manager on the requirement to add more strength to the Leeds squad in the final hours of the summer window.
