Leeds United: Fans flock as link to Daryl Dike emerges

Image for Leeds United: Fans flock as link to Daryl Dike emerges

A whole host of Leeds United fans on Twitter are buzzing as they’re being linked with a move for striker Daryl Dike.

Leeds may be looking to add another striker to their ranks in January as they have struggled to score goals this season having only netted 18 times in the Premier League, and that could be down to the fact that Patrick Bamford cannot stay fit.

Should Leeds sign Daryl Dike?





Someone who they could make a proposal for, according to 90min, is Orlando City striker Dike, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Barnsley where he scored nine goals. He was thus on a shortlist for West Brom to sign over the summer, according to Baggies journalist Joseph Masi, while Albion seem determined to bring him to The Hawthorns next month.

A lot of Leeds fans are very happy on Twitter to be linked with Dike.

What have these Leeds fans been saying?

“Another proper striker was gonna be needed before long. And a bigger more target style forward might actually suit us. Young player, lots of potential, physically very good, match fit, good scoring rate (albeit at a lower standard). Depending on cost, could be a good signing.”


“would be a nice addition”


“96 strength on fifa we might have the next Lukaku here”


“he’s a monster ain’t he?”


“He’s a great player, could develop into a Lukaku type if his touch gets better”


“Really like him he’s a top player”


So it seems Leeds are not the only team interested in the striker, with West Brom reportedly having already opened talks to sign Dike in January in a possible loan deal with an option to buy if they earn promotion, but with the prospect of playing in the Premier League with Leeds, the American striker, who scored 10 goals for Orlando City in Major League Soccer last season, could find a move to Elland Road more attractive.
