Leeds United are in a fight to be promoted to the Premier League this season, with the Whites starting the campaign well and likely to be in the mix for a top-two finish.

However, despite having the best defence in the Championship, with Elland Road outfit have failed to hit all cylinders at the other end of the pitch.

Despite the presence of Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah, Leeds have only scored 19 goals in their 15 league games this season – a stat that will worry some of the fans.

With this in mind, the Yorkshire side should look to bring in another attacking option in January.

Last month French newspaper Le Buteur claimed Leeds were keen on signing Al Sadd striker Baghdad Bounedjah.

While not a household name, the Algeria international forward could well be just the player the Whites need to mix up their attack.

Bounedjah has shown plenty of potential and certainly knows how to find the back of the net after scoring 97 goals from 78 appearances for Al Sadd.

The quality of football in Qatar is certainly far inferior as compared to the standards of the Championship.

That however does not mean that Bounedjah lacks quality. He has plenty of confidence and could be a success in England.

He is a strong player when on the ball and is especially dangerous from aerial situations.

If Leeds do sign him in January, they will have a striker who could bring them goals on a regular basis.
