I mean, it’s certainly something out of the blue it has to be said.

And at least they’re willing to look far and wide to try and find their man, rather than just insisting on Che Adams and hoping for the best. Although this deal probably has enough hurdles to climb over in order to get done that I wouldn’t exactly hold my breath that it’ll even happen.

According to a report from The Athletic, Leeds United are interested in bringing in AS Monaco forward Jean-Kevin Augustin. The 22-year-old is currently on loan at the Ligue 1 side from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig, and the report states that Marcelo Bielsa’s men will chase the Frenchman if Monaco cut his loan deal short before next Friday’s deadline.

So how did Leeds United fans react when they heard the news?

Well, to say they were underwhelmed would be an understatement, with many questioning his career record and whether or not that would be enough to fire Leeds to the Premier League, whilst others seemed concerned by his contract situation.

Would you be in favour of a move for Augustin?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Good thing he’s only a backup, imagine what the reaction would be if he was their number one choice?
