Leeds boost as deal for highly-rated next “Samuel Eto’o” could be completed soon

As per Daily Star, Leeds United are now free to open negotiations with Strømsgodset striker Abdul-Basit Agouda after he refused to sign a contract extension.

The deal of the 18-year-old expired on the last day of 2017, and a move to Elland Road could be finalized in the coming days with the winter transfer window now open.

Agouda, has often earned comparisons with legendary Barcelona striker Samuel Eto’o due to his qualities.

The teenage striking sensation is strong, has pace to burn and is excellent playing with his back against the goal.

Agouda is the complete striker that can help add dynamism to Leeds attack given his style of play.

After several scouting, the Norway under-19 international finally convinced Leeds of his quality during a match against Finland under-19’s in November, scoring a goal and proving to be a constant nuisance to the opposition defence all-game in the 4-nil rout.

Agouda was close to moving to the Championship last January as Brighton were keen, but it seems a move will finally happen this time around.
