According to reports, Leeds United have been listed as the surprise favorites to complete the signing of Ghanaian striker Caleb Ekuban.
The 23-year-old Ekuban has spent the majority of his career thus far plying his trade in the lower Leagues of Italian football.
However during a loan spell with Albanian club Partizani Tirana, the youngster had an impressive strike rate, notching 15 goals from 30 games.
Ekuban is currently on the books of Italian Serie A club Chievo Verona but does not look to be part of the clubs future plans and the club will likely listen to offers for the player.
Though Ekuban’s career statistics are certainly nothing spectacular, he is still young and will develop further with the fight guidance.
The Whites have been linked with the signature of Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths recently and should they opt for Ekuban, he will be a lot cheaper than Griffiths.
