Five Premier League strikers Leeds United could sign on loan - Not including Kyle Lafferty

Who could Leeds look to sign in the loan window next week?

Leeds United failed to add a striker in the transfer window, but there is still an opportunity to add reinforcements.

The emergency loan window for Football League clubs opens next week, meaning they could yet do business.

The Mirror reported that a deal for Norwich City's Kyle Lafferty would get the Canaries' blessing, but it would be prudent for the club to have alternatives in mind.

Here are five strikers from the Premier League who Steve Evans should look to add to his Leeds squad.

Victor Anichebe

Nigerian striker Victor Anichebe has made only five Premier League appearances this season and with Saido Berahino staying at West Bromwich Albion, his chances do not look like improving. The 27-year-old is a powerful forward who would have no problem adapting to the physical nature of the Championship, and like Chris Wood, has the ability to lead the line on his own.

Libor Kozak

Libor Kozak's spell at Aston Villa has been a nightmare thanks to a succession of injuries. He has however finally been fit all season this campaign, but has been selected for only four Premier League games. A change of scene is needed, and while Aston Villa may be tempted to keep him for their relegation fight, sending him to the Championship to get adjusted to a league he will likely be playing in next year may not be a bad idea rather than have him sit in the stands.

Peter Odemwingie

Stoke forward Peter Odemwingie may be the best player potentially available. He attempted to secure a deadline day move to Marseille, but the French side were unwilling to meet the club's asking price. Odemwingie has been picked for only four league games, and sending him on loan could still be an option for Stoke. Odemwingie is a livewire of a striker who would be a great addition for Leeds if they could get him.

Marvin Emnes

Emnes was linked with a loan switch to Leeds back in November by the South Wales Evening Post, and it would not be a surprise to see Steve Evans attempt to do a deal. The former Middlesbrough forward has played just 56 minutes of Premier League football this season, and at 27, desperately needs a move to avoid a wasted season.

Obbi Oulare

Watford splashed out £6 million to sign Obbi Oulare back in the summer from Club Brugge, but the 20-year-old has spent most of his time with the under-21 squad. Oulare was linked with Wolves by The Mail in January, and it would make sense for the Hornets to send him to get regular playing time, having made just one Premier League appearance.
