Leeds United are reportedly keen on Willem II's Fran Sol.

Leeds United are likely to be in the market for new signings in the January transfer window, with a return to the Premier League becoming increasingly likely under Marcelo Bielsa.

The Whites have seen Patrick Bamford return from injury, but another striker may still be on the radar given that Tyler Roberts remains inexperienced.

Reports from TEAMtalk claim that Leeds are interested in snapping up Willem II striker Fran Sol, and who could blame them? The Spaniard has smashed 15 goals in 18 games this term, building on last season's tally of 20 goals.

 

Sol is particularly enticing given that he becomes a free agent next summer and could be a 2019 bargain, but Leeds shouldn't stop their Dutch shopping at the 26-year-old Spaniard.

Back in August, Goal reported that Leeds had failed with a bid for Heracles Almelo winger Brandley Kuwas, and landing both Kuwas and Sol could be a smart double move for Leeds.

Kuwas has also impressed this term with five goals and three assists in 15 Eredivisie games, and the Dutch winger is surely still on the Leeds radar months on from their failed attempt.

The Curacao international, 26, is a skilful, dangerous winger, and landing him may allow Pablo Hernandez to work centrally and become Samu Saiz's replacement in a slight rejig for Marcelo Bielsa.

Kuwas is also out of contract at the end of the season, and Leeds could land themselves two major bargains if they go for Kuwas as well as Sol next month.
