It looks like Hull City might be losing Abel Hernandez this summer.

Speculation is mounting that newly-promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen to bring the Uruguayan to Molineux on their return to the top flight this summer [Tuttomercatoweb].

Celtic have also been previously been linked with the 27-year-old who cost Hull a cool £10.8 million in 2014 - but Leeds United fans want to see their club get in on the action.

If Leeds strengthen one area during the summer transfer window, it simply has to be up front.

Hamburg-owned Pierre-Michel Lasogga hinted on Instagram this past weekend that he would not be returning to Elland Road and although United have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Carpi hitman Jerry Mbakogu [Gazetta dello Sport], at least one other marksman needs to arrive.

Despite an injury-hit 2017-18 campaign with the Tigers, Hernandez still managed eight Championship goals in 10 appearances for City.

And Leeds supporters on Twitter are keen to see their side join the likes of Wolves and challenge for his signature.

If, hypothetically, Hernandez has the choice between Wolves and Leeds, he will probably punt for Nuno Espirito Santo's side.

The South American could and should feel a sense of unfinished business in the top flight, having only scored eight times in 49 Premier League outings for Hull, and if he gets the chance to return then few would blame him for taking it.
