Leeds United are in the process of writing one of the most fascinating success stories in the Championship this season. From being a mediocre side with frequent managerial changes, Massimo Cellino behaved in a manner which was in stark contrast with the existing popular beliefs and handed the manager the vote of confidence and the results that have yielded are outstanding.

Garry Monk has dealt with the baptism of fire in a pretty shrewd manner and under his tutelage, there is a lot of optimism around the Elland Road with respect to their promotion to the Premier League. The Whites are placed 4th on the league table with 69 points after 38 outings and are unarguably one of the staunch contenders to get promoted.

Irrespective of whether they get promoted or not, Monk needs to carry on his duties of preparing a core team for the upcoming season as well and it is high time for him to start zeroing in on his prospective transfer targets. One of the key aspects he would like to bolster is the role of the striker and apparently, Leeds United are reported to be interested in signing Martyn Waghorn from Rangers.

Rangers v Hamilton Academical - Scottish Cup Quarter-Final

Waghorn has banged 8 goals in 25 games across all competitions and Leeds United’s prospective raid makes perfect sense at the onset. The 27-year-old started in the Gers’ 4-0 win over Hamilton Academical last weekend and found his name on the score sheet as well, courtesy of a neat finish from the penalty spot. However, his future under Rangers’ new manager in the form of Pedro Caixinha is seemingly uncertain.

Waghorn has immense experience and has the requisite calibre to ply his trade for a blossoming side like Leeds United. He is a serial threat during set-pieces, holds up the game meticulously up front and his crossing abilities are stupendous as well, Moreover, despite being a striker, he can play on the wings as well and never refrains from making defensive contributions for his side and all these notable traits pile up to construct him as a complete package.

Many a time, we have seen the Peacocks’ regular goal-getter, Chris Wood, finding himself all alone in catering to the striking responsibilities of his side. Luring someone like Waghorn into the ranks under the former Swansea City manager would enable the West Yorkshire based outfit to maintain a decent arsenal up front and the level of healthy competition is likely to get higher, provided he is signed by the Championship club.
