Leeds United have been credited with interest in Coventry City striker Viktor Gyokeres, but face stiff competition from Wolves and Brentford for his signature.
January is not far away for Leeds and plans should already be in place for Victor Orta to sort new signings for the left-back and striker positions.
Having missed out on Matheus Cunha to Wolves, Leeds will need to move a lot quicker if they are to land key targets.
The need for a striker is something Leeds cannot ignore, and the idea of signing from the Championship could be tempting to the club, given the budget and quality of players playing in the division this season.
Coventry City’s Viktor Gyokeres is reported by Football League World to be on the club’s radar right now, after scoring seven league goals in his last seven appearances, along with one assist.
However, the report also outlines that Leeds’ relegation rivals Wolves are also keen on the 24-year-old after his electric first half of the season.
“And, FLW can reveal that Wolves are looking to move ahead of the likes of Leeds United, Brentford, Southampton and Crystal Palace as they are planning to make an offer to the Sky Blues.”

Leeds could do a lot worse than signing Gyokeres in the new year, but signing him will have to see Leeds muscle others out of the way.
In terms of the other sides we’re up against, Leeds are perhaps the team that can best offer starts as a number nine.
Wolves have just signed Cunha and have other forwards needing game time, while Crystal Palace have Odsonne Edouard, Southampton have Sekou Mara, Adam Armstrong and Che Adams, and Brentford have Ivan Toney (for the time being).
