Leeds are in pole position to sign Hernandez, the Yorkshire Evening Post reported this week, after making the player a substantial offer.

The report claimed he is in advanced talks with the Whites.

Hernandez scored eight goals in his last 10 games for Hull after bouncing back from a knee injury.

Abel Hernandez of Hull City scores his sides fourth goal during the Sky Bet Championship match between Bristol City and Hull City at Ashton Gate on April 21, 2018 in Bristol, England.

If Hernandez is set on staying in England then Galatasaray's interest can quickly be discounted.

However the Turkish side can offer top flight football with a chance of challenging for the Super Lig title, with the side winning the league this past season.

This also means they can offer Hernandez a chance to play in the Champions League next season.
