A huge majority of the Leeds fans that responded to our poll wanted Marcelo Bielsa to target Emmanuel Emenike after the club’s recent injury troubles upfront.

Bielsa only has a 22-man squad at the moment and may need to look to the plethora of free-agents who are currently still available in order to provide cover.

Leeds were dealt a huge double injury blow when, as reported by the Daily Mail, Kemar Roofe was ruled out of the trip to Millwall on Saturday with new signing Patrick Bamford already out for four months with a knee ligament injury.

Welsh youngster Tyler Roberts stepped in to the starting line up for the trip to the New Den and performed admirably, testing the Millwall defence with his runs in behind and work-rate.

Emenike would be a top class signing for Leeds though if Bielsa could convince him to join, having spent time with West Ham, Fenerbahce, Olympiacos and Spartak Moscow.

The Nigerian international, who has nine goals in 37 caps for his country, is known for his pace and could be the perfect fit for Bielsa’s system that requires a striker to hound defenders constantly.

A huge 83 per cent of Leeds fans agreed and wanted the club to sign the 31-year-old.
