Leeds United fans might be hoping speed merchant Rashad Muhammed was being scouted this week

The French striker scored as Leeds United had a transfer delegation in Norway.

Reports this week have suggested that Leeds United scouted the Europa League clash between Sarpsborg and Besiktas on Thursday night. As reported by Sport Witness, a Leeds official was at the game on a transfer mission.

Since then, reports in Turkey have suggested that former Sunderland player Jeremain Lens might have been the reason for the visit.

But one exciting player that Leeds might hope was on the radar is Saprsborg attacker Rashad Muhammed.

 

The Frenchman, who first moved to Norway with Floro in 2015, has been in good form for the Norwegian side recently. Capable of playing out wide but favouring a centre-forward role he scored in the game, which Saprsborg lost 3-2 to the Turkish side.

It was his second goal in the competition this season. But it is not exactly his goal record that might have Leeds interested. Muhammed might be a familiar name to any Leeds fans who also play FIFA 19. Because the striker is one of the fastest players on the game. In fact, he is 13th in the list and with good reason.

Just a quick look at any YouTube compilation of his talents will show just how powerful a runner the 25-year-old is. Even his goal against Besiktas proved it. He left both Loris Karius and Domagoj Vida exposed with his blistering speed. 

There is no doubt he would add serious pace to the Leeds attack. Maybe he is the mystery man that Leeds are looking at.
