Leeds United are set to make a shock £3 million bid to take Hull City star Jarrod Bowen on loan, according to The Sun.
The Whites are desperate to bolster their attacking ranks this month and have moved their attention towards the winger.
It is claimed that Leeds will pay a further £15 million if they were to win promotion to the Premier League.
Bowen is out of contract during the summer and any bid of this value will certainly offer the Tigers food for thought.
Leeds are currently second in the Championship with six points separating them and Brentford in third.
Marcelo Bielsa’s team were beaten 2-0 by Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and supporters will hope to avoid blowing automatic promotion in the same fashion they did last season.
Bowen has been sensational for Hull this season. He has smashed 16 goals and registered five assists for Grant McCann’s team and is thought to be worth £20 million (Sun).
TBR View – Leeds must avoid Daniel James situation in pursuit of Bowen
This deal will have a sense of deja vu to Leeds supporters. It was this time last year when Daniel James was posing with a white shirt, only to return to Swansea without penning terms at Elland Road.
That predicament ultimately scuppered their plans of automatic promotion and the same can’t happen this time around.
Bowen has shown real quality this season. He would certainly represent a remarkable signing for the Whites.
He has pace, trickery and a brilliant engine, making him a perfect addition to a team managed by Bielsa.
If Hull accept the bid, Leeds will be well on their way to the top-flight.
