Leeds United are said to be looking to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

With the Yorkshire Evening Post suggesting that Leeds United will look to sign a striker in January, we take a look at three players they could move for.

Peter Crouch (Stoke City)

Crouch has been linked with a move to Leeds over the past few transfer windows, but no deal has materialised.

The target-man striker has barely featured for Stoke this season, though, and could be available in January.

If Leeds are serious about a promotion push, Crouch’s experience could be vital - and he would offer a good outlet to the Yorkshire side up-front.

Omar Bogle (Grimsby Town)

Leeds may be loathed to go back to League Two, after Kemar Roofe’s slow start at Elland Road, but Bogle looks to have a bright future.

Bogle has hit 14 goals for Grimsby in the league already this season, and his pace and power has troubled defences.

He would also offer Leeds a different outlet than the likes of Chris Wood and Marcus Antonsson, meaning he could be a smart addition.

Jordan Rhodes (Middlesbrough)

This would be an ambitious move for Leeds,but it would send out a message of how serious they are about going up.

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka has hinted that Rhodes could be available for transfer in January.

Although Leeds are unlikely to be able to afford a permanent transfer, a loan move with a view to permanent could be possible.

Leeds would likely need to be a Premier League club to keep Rhodes for a lengthy period of time, but his arrival could be the difference between Garry Monk’s side claiming a play off spot or falling short.
