Three viable signings Leeds United should make to complete their side

Forget Fernando Forestieri, here are three viable Leeds signings the club should push through before the transfer deadline.

The transfer window is coming to a close, and Leeds United are likely to be active before the deadline.

It was reported earlier this week by the Yorkshire Evening Post they are to walk away from a deal for Fernando Forestieri as the Watford forward does not want to make the move.

This leaves the £3 million owner Massimo Cellino was ready to front up burning a hole in his pocket, likely to be spent elsewhere.

Here are three viable ways they could add to the squad, and yes, they should be looking at adding all three...

Liam Moore

This is a deal which very possibly gets done. Leeds head coach Uwe Rosler was watching Moore in action as Leicester defeated Bury last night, reported the Yorkshire Evening Post, with a view to a deal.

A loan move for the England under-21 international is most likely, who played under Rosler at Brentford. He would also be welcomed by former Leicester teammate Chris Wood.

He has not started in the Premier League this season and needs a move in order to kick on. Italian reports via Tuttomercatoweb that Giuseppe Bellusci is a target for Atalanta makes it even more likely a defender is brought in.

Anthony Limbombe

The addition of Stuart Dallas from Brentford answered the club's need for a winger, but if Leeds feel they only need one they they are mistaken.

The club are yet to score more than one goal in a game at home this season early on, and adding extra pace to their attack is essential.

NEC Nijmegen winger Anthony Limbombe was prolific last season in the Dutch second tier, helping the club win promotion, reaching double figures in terms of goals and assists.

NEC's director Bert van Ingen told Omroep Gelderland that Limbombe is unsettled due to Leeds interest.

Gary Hooper

Chris Wood and Mirco Antenucci are outstanding strikers, but adding one more to their squad will be of real benefit to the squad.

Norwich City forward Gary Hooper could be just that man. The 27-year-old netted 16 Championship goals for the Canaries last season despite being a bit part player.

The Sheffield Star has reported rivals Sheffield Wednesday are making a strong play to sign him on loan, but if Leeds want to finish above Carlos Carvalhal's side, they would be best advised to add Hooper to their stable of impressive forwards.
