Leeds United are watching SC Amiens striker Moussa Konate, according to a report in France.
French sports daily L’Equipe claim that Marcelo Bielsa’s men are tracking 25-year-old Senegal forward, who played at the World Cup in Russia.
Konate has a contract until 2021 with the Ligue 1 outfit and has been interesting Leeds and Brentford, according to the source.
He scored 13 goals in Ligue 1 last season and has has 75 goals in 227 career games.
Bielsa has already added Patrick Bamford from Middlesbrough for a fee which could rise to £10million, but the West Yorkshire side could still be in the market for another forward.
The Whites are believed to be looking to add another midfielder and a back-up centre-back and those two positions may well be more of a priority for the Argentinian coach at Elland Road.
Leeds, though, have also been linked with a move for Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic.
The Bosnian is not thought to have a future at Goodison under new boss Marco Silva and Middlesbrough have been mentioned as a suitor for the 25-year-old – the side where he pent the second half of last season.
#LUFC: This is where the Besic news came from. Says Everton have rejected Championship offers for him and set 'fairly high compensation'. Boro have a right to keep him, apparently and WBA are interested too, because of course they are. https://t.co/4tbHbjbF3e

Bosnian source sportsport claim that Leeds are the latest Championship club to enquire about Besic.
The report claims “Besic and Bielsa would be a very interesting match” but they doubt whether “Leeds will comply with the requirements of Everton, who have set a fairly high compensation” fee on the player’.
The source also claim West Brom are interested in Besic.
