Abel Hernandez is the big name linked with a move to Leeds United but their top target should be a man linked with the Whites in January.

Serbia international Aleksandar Prijovic was tipped to sign for Leeds under Thomas Christiansen with Goal Cyprus reporting their interest.

Prijovic stayed at Greek side PAOK amid interest also from French side Lille and has continued to score for fun, netting 27 goals in total.

He has now scored 70 goals across the past three seasons of his career and he could land a big move this summer as he heads to the World Cup with Serbia.

It was Prijovic who scored the goal which sealed their place in the finals, and importantly a bidding war will not rule Leeds out, as he has a £8.8 million release clause in his contract.

Leeds could be outgunned from sides offering better wages, but if they move before the tournament then they have a chance.

Prijovic's physical style is suited to English football and he had a spell at Derby early on in his career.

Abel Hernandez may be more proven in England, but he would also come with a health warning, having had to battle serious knee injury, whereas Prijovic would not arrive with any such history.
