While the January window is still some distance away and the summer window has only just closed, Leeds have already been linked with pursuing a deal for Orlando City striker Cyle Larin.
The Sun on Sunday (print edition; 10th September 2017; page 58) reported that the Whites were keen on the 22-year-old and hope that £2 million may be enough to land the Canada international.
Larin has certainly impressed during his time in MLS and would arguably be a great addition to Leeds' attacking ranks, but perhaps the Whites may be wise to consider reigniting their interest in a summer target and prioritising that pursuit ahead of a move for Larin.
The Daily Mirror reported in the final days of the summer window that Leeds wanted Sheffield Wednesday striker George Hirst - who is out of contract at Hillsborough at the end of the season and, according to the Mirror, is worried about the congested path to the first-team that lies in front of him.
Though Larin is a more proven player, it may perhaps be worth gambling on prioritising their interest in Hirst as he appears to have the potential to go a very long way in the game.
The teenager may have struggled to break into the Owls' side - making only a couple of first-team appearances so far - but he has been fairly prolific at various England youth levels, and has attracted Premier League attention, with the Mirror reporting that Leicester made a move in the summer.
Signing Larin would certainly not be an underwhelming deal, especially if he is capable of replicating his MLS form at Elland Road if a deal did take place.
But perhaps prioritising a move for Hirst may prove an inspired risk as he seems to be one to look out for in the future.
