Leeds reportedly consider last-ditch attempt to sign player with 18 goals this season

The Birmingham Mail have reported that Leeds United may still try to grab the Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott despite recent news claimed the Whites have run out of money after spending £7 million this January.

Manager Thomas Christiansen has already brought some quality players at Elland Road earlier this month, with the names of Laurens De Bock and Adam Forshaw standing out from the crowd.

However, the former APOEL Nicosia coach has been trying to find a high-quality striker to replace the unconvincing Jay-Roy Grot.

The 23-year-old attacker has had a tremendous first half of the season in League One, scoring 18 goals in 28 appearances.

Grant McCann considers the former Luton Town striker an indispensable first-team player that can help Peterborough to reach the Championship promotion this year.

The Posh won’t give up on their rising star easily, as they have already slapped a £6 million price tag on Marriott. And, considering the amount of money Leeds already invested in the transfer market, it would be very laborious for them to complete this deal.
