According to Alan Nixon, a journalist from The Sun, Leeds United have made a bid for Joel Piroe, the Swansea City striker who is valued at £15m and has been linked with a move to Elland Road . Piroe, 24, has been impressive since joining Swansea from PSV in The Netherlands. He has scored 44 goals in 92 games for the Welsh club in his first two seasons. He has also started this season well, with two goals in four matches.
Leeds, on the other hand, are in need of a striker. Their main forwards, Patrick Bamford and Mateo Joseph, are both injured. Joe Gelhardt and Georginio Rutter are not suited for the no.9 role. Leeds urgently need a player like Piroe, who can lead the line and score goals.

The latest report suggests that Leeds have submitted an offer for Piroe. Nixon claims that Leeds are ready to pay £15m for the Swansea star, whose contract will expire at the end of the season . Swansea have rejected other bids for Piroe – but while other clubs have given up, Nixon says Leeds are ‘desperate’ to sign him. Piroe was praised as “outstanding” by his manager Russell Martin last season .
Nixon reports that Leeds make bid for Swansea striker Piroe This would be a fantastic signing, if we can pull it off. He is a proven goalscorer in the Championship, and he still has room to improve. Based on his record in the second division – he can score in the Premier League as well.
Piroe is exactly what we need and at £15m, he could be a great bargain for the future. It is not clear if he wants to stay in the Championship, but Leeds offer him a better chance of promotion. If we can secure Piroe’s services, it would boost our hopes of returning to the Premier League immediately. Let’s hope that Nixon’s reports are accurate and Leeds are willing to splash the cash.
