After 3m bid reportedly rejected, Leeds should hijack move for Championship star Nouha Dicko

Thomas Christiansen is running out of time to find a replacement for Chris Wood at Leeds United and should quickly table an offer for Wolves speed machine Nouha Dicko.[spacer height=”20px”]

According to the Mirror on Friday, 10.31am, it claimed that Hull City have had a £3million offer rejected for the 25-year-old striker, who has started the 2017-18 season in brilliant form.[spacer height=”20px”]

It is said that Wolves are keep to keep striker as they only have two number nine options available to them, after Dicko has found the back of the net twice already despite failing to start a single Championship match.[spacer height=”20px”]

The Gazette claimed earlier this week that Leeds had a bid of £6million rejected for Middlesbrough striker Rudy Gestede, with Garry Monk’s side desperate to keep the former Blackburn and Aston Villa ace.[spacer height=”20px”]

That should see Leeds turn their attentions elsewhere and Dicko could be the next man on their shortlist, with Hull’s rejected bid of £3million giving the Whites the opportunity to steal in.[spacer height=”20px”]

Although not hugely renowned for his goal threat, Dicko has struck 35 goals in 107 appearances for Wolves as well as notching up 16 assists which includes playing from out wide, too.[spacer height=”20px”]

Nouha Dicko is more than adept at finding the back of the net in the Championship, scoring 28 career goals despite starting only 60 of his 112 outings in England’s second tier.[spacer height=”20px”]

Offering an abundance of pace and power, the two-time Mali international has a proven eye for goal and can offer cover in the number 10 role as well as showing quality out wide.[spacer height=”20px”][spacer height=”20px”]

Although he offers less aerial prowess when compared to Wood, his pace and ability on the ball could make him a better option than the New Zealand international with Christiansen desperate to see his side keep the ball on the deck.[spacer height=”20px”]

Wolves are in a strong position regarding the former Wigan and Rotherham striker’s future, with three years remaining on his contract. But if Leeds can strike a deal worth around £5million, they will add a striker more than capable of firing them towards Premier League promotion.[spacer height=”20px”]
