Leeds United have been linked with Hull City striker Abel Hernandez, whose season has been plagued with injuries. He managed to make just 10 appearances in the Championship this term but was more than prolific in whatever chances he got as he found the net 8 times and assisted a further two goals.

Hull City’s season could have been different if they would have had their Uruguayan striker available for selection. The Tigers finished a dismal 18th and they could lose out on their talented striker as his contract will come to an end in June.

Leeds United are in desperate need of a 15-20 goal striker as they have struggled to find the back of the net this term. Their second highest scorer, Pierre Michel Lasogga has headed back to his parent club Hamburg after his loan spell. The German striker managed 10 goals for them this season and Paul Heckingbottom will be looking in the transfer market to find an able replacement for him.

Hernandez has been with Hull City since they were part of the Premier League. After the season they were relegated, he managed to score 20 goals for them in the second division and has been one of the key players at the KCOM stadium over the years. But it seems like he will look to move to other clubs as he might be willing to play in the top flight once again.

Abel Hernandez is a proven striker and is particularly known for his bursting pace. He is a willing runner and will do well in a team who can put him through on goal with an eye of the needle pass. His finishing sometimes lets him down but he will certainly be more than a handy player at Elland road and will probably walk in the first eleven straight away.

Hull City have had a miserable season under Nigel Adkins as they finished 18th and one expected much better from a team who were in the Premier League not too long ago. They could have been in for a relegation threat, if not for Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson who revived them through his goals in the latter half of the season.

The Peacocks managed to score 59 times this term and everyone will agree that to challenge for the playoffs spot, that is just not good enough. An experienced striker like Hernandez will certainly solve some of their attacking woes but Paul Heckingbottom’s side will have to fight for his signature as the likes of Derby County are also after him.
