Reports are suggesting that Leeds United could bring Abel Hernandez to Elland Road from Championship rivals Hull City.
Finally. A Leeds United transfer market that the fans actually want.
The Whites have been linked with a number of centre-forwards but the report states that the Uruguayan international is now at the top of their summer wish list, and with good reason.
Hernandez looks like the prolific, Championship centre-forward Leeds have been pining for since Chris Wood left for Burnley last summer. His 20 goals fired Hull to promotion back in 2015 and, despite starting just 10 league games last season due to injury, Hernandez still found the time to hit the net on eight occasions.
And, just to add to the speculation surrounding a possible move to Elland Road, Hernandez has posted a tweet seemingly bidding farewell to Hull, and looking forward to the next chapter in his footballing career.

Hernandez has been inundated by responses from Leeds fans asking whether they are likely to see him at Elland Road next season.
And if Leeds do pull off a deal for one of the most feared strikers in English football’s second tier, they could hardly have made a more impressive start to the summer.
