Leeds should hijack reported interest in Huddersfield striker Karlan Grant

Leeds United sit in a great position right now in the Championship table after 27 games, but they know all too well how easy it is to slip away in the second half of the season.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team are second in the division table as it stands just a point behind leaders West Brom, but more importantly six points above third-placed Brentford.

The Whites have the simple aim of automatic promotion to try obtain this campaign and they are playing the kind of football that should get them over the line, despite a few minor bumps in the road recently.

But surely the Yorkshire giants can’t be content with just having Patrick Bamford as their main striker option for the rest of the season.

They have lost understudy Eddie Nketiah after Arsenal decided to recall him from his loan and it means there is a real lack of options in the final third.

A Bamford injury would leave Bielsa in a world of trouble, so surely the club need to go bring in a forward during the remainder of the January window.

Leeds should consider turning their attention to Karlan Grant from Championship rivals Huddersfield Town.

 

The English centre-forward has 12 goals in 28 games across all competitions this season and is exactly the type of addition that could thrive at Elland Road.

He’s a clinical finisher that has impressed for 20th-placed Huddersfield, but he would surely score plenty more goals if he lined up in Bielsa’s XI.

Leeds are guilty of wasting opportunities each week and they would be far more dangerous with a natural goalscorer like Grant in the ranks.

According to the Birmingham Mail, West Brom are considering a move for Huddersfield frontman Grant.

But Leeds need to hijack the interest in the 22-year-old speed machine, as he could hold the key to promotion this season and would be ideal competition for Bamford.
