Watch: Leeds United Target Has Now Scored 10 Goals In 9 Games

Leeds United have been keeping tabs on Kasimpasa striker Mbaye Diagne this season.

Diagne’s agent Ediz Balkan has made it clear to Turkish-Football that Leeds are one of several clubs scouting the prolific striker.

The powerful striker was targetted by Leeds United, Reading and Hull City [Turkish-Football] over the transfer window.

Diagne was unable to complete a move to England due to not having a work permit but he will have an EU passport in 2018.

The 26-year-old has been in great form for the Istanbul based outfit and scored a brace today in the 5-0 victory over Akhisar.

The victory moved Kasimpasa into second place just a single point behind league leaders Galatasaray.
