Leeds have reportedly enquired about signing a young striker.
Leeds United have enquired after signing Juventus youngster Stephy Mavididi, report Team Talk.
The former Arsenal youngster is a talented prospect, but not one who Leeds should be signing.
He would not be ready to displace either Patrick Bamford or Kemar Roofe, and to that end, there is little point adding him.
Not when Leeds already have an option who may be even better.
Ryan Edmondson scored prolificly for the club's under-23 side last season, helping them to win a division title.
He made his Leeds debut two seasons ago, and now it's time for him to get a proper run in the team.
Mavididi joining would complicate this, and he wouldn't necessarily be better.
His last loan spell in English football was a disappointment at Preston North End.
Leeds either need to look to the top end of the market and sign a proven striker, or put their faith in Edmondson to provide an alternative.
