Leeds United are looking to add a striker to their ranks by January in order to boost their promotion chances, and have identified St. Pauli striker Marvin Ducksch as a top target.
The German striker is currently on loan at Holstein Kiel in the Bundesliga 2, and has notched 10 league goals and 2 assists in 15 games to top the goal charts.
Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen is hoping Ducksch can help add much-needed attacking firepower to his squad, but now has tough competition for the German striker with a couple of Bundesliga sides also keen according to recent reports.
The former Dortmund man is hoping to prove all and sundry he has what it takes to succeed in the German topflight, and will prefer to remain in his country.
Despite reports from Leeds scouts over Ducksch’s lack of pace and movement – qualities Christiansen desires in his choice of strikers – it’s believed the Elland Road outfit still want the 23-year-old.
Landing him could do Leeds’ promotion ambition a lot of good given their lack of impressive finishing in front of goal, but it remains to be seen if they can successfully convince him to leave Germany for England.
