Leeds United are one of many clubs to be casting a close eye over Rennes striker Martin Terrier ahead of the January transfer window, according to 90min.

The online outlet has reported that scouts have been busy in the past two weeks with a groundbreaking bid of over £30million likely needed to get a deal over the line.

It is set to be a busy race though with Newcastle, Manchester United and Arsenal among half of the Premier League to take an interest in Terrier.

After 11 goals and four assists already in Ligue 1 this season, it is said that Premier League clubs have found it hard not to be impressed by the Frenchman.

Leeds reportedly made contact over a move in the summer, but talks didn’t amount to a bid, with interest growing significantly since then ahead of January.

90min has suggested that it would likely take a groundbreaking bid of over £30million from Elland Road to get a deal over the line, something that will unlikely put clubs off.

Wow.

This would be absolutely huge.

Anyone looking at this squad would see that the clear hole is at number nine, with Patrick Bamford only highlighting that further with his dreadful start to the season.

The England international has not been the same since his return from injury, and his continued poor form in front of goal is letting the squad down.

Jesse Marsch will be in constant talks with Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta, not only about his own future but plans for the January window, if he is still there which is expected.

Smashing the club transfer record with a move worth over £30million for Terrier would be perfect and exactly what the squad would need coming back from the World Cup.

A new number nine could catapult us up the Premier League, especially if we beat half of the division to his signature, and given he has just been called up to the French squad, his stock is only getting higher.

This is one to look out for.
