Leeds in hunt to sign £5.1m-valued Euro international with 13 goals in 19/20 season - reports
Leeds United are among a number of clubs who are in the hunt to sign Union Berlin centre-forward Sebastian Andersson, according to Kicker.
The German magazine claims that Newcastle, Bournemouth, West Brom, Brentford, Celtic and Schalke are also interested in the 28-year-old Sweden international, who scored 13 goals in 36 appearances for Union this season.
Swedish news outlet Fotboll Skanalen has previously reported that Brighton, Valencia and Villarreal also want to sign Andersson and that Union Berlin have slapped a £5.1million price-tag on the head of their top goalscorer.
Andersson is attracting so much attention that Leeds fans would be forgiven for getting excited by seeing their team is reportedly eyeing up the Bundesliga hitman.
If Marcelo Bielsa’s side wins promotion to the Premier League this season then he is going to need to do something about his striker options.
Patrick Bamford is his number one choice at the moment but he has frustrated fans a lot of the time in the Championship and we just cannot see him performing as well as Bielsa will want him to in the Premier League.
Jean-Kevin Augustin’s future is still up for debate due to an obligation to buy clause in his loan deal from RB Leipzig.
If Augustin doesn’t sign permanently then Andersson might be a solid option considering he has shone in a major European league for a club that was touted for relegation.
Leeds will be battling against relegation next season if they return to the Premier League so a striker who has experience of scoring goals for a team like that could be a big asset for Bielsa.
