Over the last few days, the media in England had reported that Leeds United are close to signing a talented Norwegian striker Abdul-Basit Agouda.
According to the Sunday Mirror, Leeds were on the verge of bringing the Stromsgodset’ wonderkid for a fee of £500,000.
However, the latest reports from Norway suggest that youngster will soon complete his move to the domestic club Stabaek. The same news was broadcasted by the Daily Express.
Leeds’ manager Thomas Christiansen is determined to bring a quality striker in January transfer window. Orlando City’ forward Cyle Larin was the first target, but he refused to join Championship’ side as he’s hoping for a Bundesliga move.
It seemed that Leeds would be able to bring the 18-year-old Agouda, whose contract expires at the end of the season; however, the latest information says that the player still move to Stabaek instead.
Norwegian media compares Agouda with Samuel Eto’o, saying that the Cameroonian striker is his role-model and that they have a similar style of play. As things stand, Leeds will have to look elsewhere to find a new striker.
