According to a report from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United are in talks to sign Kasimpasa striker Mbaye Diagne.

The Whites have been linked with a move for the Senegalese striker for a number of weeks, with Hull City, Reading and Premier League side AFC Bournemouth also said to be interested in the 26-year-old.

However, Leeds United have appeared to make the first move, with Leeds reportedly in talks with the front man.

Diagne currently plays for Kasimpasa, who play in the top flight of Turkish football, but he has traveled around a lot in his football career.

Perhaps the most impressive achievement in his career is when he was signed by Serie A giants Juventus back in July 2013.

Although he failed to make a real impression at the Turin club, the fact that they signed him in the first place shows the ability that he has.

During the 2017/18 season, Diagne scored 12 goals in 17 games, showing his potential to find the back of the net, and that is exactly what Leeds United need.

The Yorkshire club finished 13th in the Sky Bet Championship last season, and a lot of their struggles came down to a lack of goals.

Kemar Roofe was the club’s top goal scorer with 14 goals, but summer signings such as Caleb Ekuban failed to live up to expectations.

Mbaye Diagne currently has two years left on his contract, so if Leeds United were to get his hands on him, it may be a relatively expensive deal.
