Leeds United should consider a loan move for Burnley striker Nahki Wells in January as Thomas Christiansen looks to bolster his attacking ranks.
Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen should aim to sort a January loan deal for out-of-favour Burnley striker Nahki Wells as he looks to get his side’s play-off challenge back on track.
The Whites are sitting in eighth place in the Championship table following a 2-0 win over Yorkshire rivals Barnsley, but have struggled to get goals from their array of strikers this term.
After a blistering start to life at Elland Road, Pierre-Michel Lasogga’s form has nosedived, whilst summer signings Caleb Ekuban, Jay-Roy Grot and Pawel Cibicki are yet to register a goal between them.
Nahki Wells signed a three-year deal with Burnley from newly-promoted Huddersfield Town in the summer for a fee of £5 million (BBC Sport) but is yet to make an appearance for The Clarets, who are turning heads thanks to an excellent start to the season.
After returning from an ankle operation in the summer, the 27-year-old finds himself behind Sam Vokes and Chris Wood in the pecking order and could be an excellent option for Leeds in January.
With his pace and poacher’s instinct, Wells would give Christiansen the option to play two up top, with Wells running onto the flick-ons of German target man Pierre-Michel Lasogga.
