Leeds United are reportedly keen on Aleksandar Prijovic.

Leeds United transfer target Aleksandar Prijovic could be available for cheaper than his reported £8.8m release clause.

Goal Cyprus reported Leeds' interest in Prijovic late last month, with the Serbian striker impressing for PAOK.

The release clause has the potential to rule Leeds out of the chase, but the Greek side could yet accept a cut-price offer.

Serbian outlet Mozzart Sports report PAOK could accept 4.5 million Euros (£4m) for Prijovic, amid the reported Leeds interest.

Prijovic has netted 60 club goals across his past four seasons and scored the goal which sealed Serbia's qualification for the World Cup.

Leeds have failed to score in their last two games against Birmingha City and Nottingham Forest, emphasising their need for a goalscorer.

Prijovic could fit the bill, and has brief experience as a youngster in England from a short stint at Derby County.

Leeds should certainly take a punt on putting PAOK's resolve to the test, and try and find out if £4 million will indeed be enough to land the striker.
