Leeds have been linked with a number of strikers so far this summer and it is evident that Marcelo Bielsa wants a new number 9.

Certainly, though, so far things are proving easier said than done and the men from Elland Road that matter need to get things in gear soon and start racking up the arrivals.

If we want Britt Assombalonga, though, we’re going to have to stump up some serious cash according to the Northern Echo.

The outlet previously reported our interest and now they are claiming that Middlesbrough want £15m for the powerful forward.

Certainly, that would be some outlay even with our ‘new ambition’ and it remains to be seen if the club decides to go for it.

The Verdict

This is serious cash and I’m not sure whether it’s worth it.

Certainly, it would see the Matej Vydra deal surely go by the wayside and if you ask me of the two who would I want more, it’s probably the Czech.

If we can’t get Vydra, though, at least we have an idea of how much Assombalonga would cost.
