Leeds United are prepared to offer £5m for Besiktas striker Cyle Larin after impressing on loan at Zulte Waregem according to Fotomac.

Per the source, Larin has several sides interested in him but Leeds are leading the race.

Zulte have a £2m option to buy Larin – confirmed by Besiktas – which means they could technically sign the Canada international and sell him on for a profit this summer.

Besiktas gave the Belgium outfit a low buy option based on his poor form last season. Larin netted just one goal in the Super Lig and four in total.

Larin scored eight goals and provided two assists in 26 appearances over the course of one-and-a-half seasons in Turkey.

The 24-year-old has seven goals and 10 assists in the league this term.
