Leeds United manager Garry Monk has spoken of his desire to strengthen his squad over the next two transfer windows.
One area of concern, however, for Garry Monk will be his side's over reliance on Chris Wood, and further competition for places in the forward department will be a necessity, especially if they manage to gain promotion to the Premier League.
Chris Martin of Fulham scores
The 28-year-old frontman has scored seven goals in 17 league appearances for the Cottagers so far this term, but has not been selected by Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic since Boxing Day, after the striker reportedly declared himself unfit for their clash with Reading, after hearing that Rams boss Steve McClaren wanted to recall him (BBC Sport).
Although a move for Martin this month would seemingly not be viable, the Whites should consider a summer bid for the target man.
His 6 ft frame enables him to bully defenders, and his aerial ability could certainly prove to be an asset to the Leeds' frontline.
Scotland's Chris Martin
The 10-capped Scotland international's contract with Derby expires in the summer of 2018, and Leeds' chances of signing him in the summer will be heavily dependant on how integral he is deemed to be to Steve McClaren's plans at the iPro Stadium.
Martin's impressive work-rate, and his ability to bring others into play by holding up the ball will appeal to Garry Monk, and bringing him to Elland Road in the summer could turn out to be a major coup for Leeds.
