Leeds United are intent on strengthening their forward line following promotion to the Premier League and are reportedly interested in Valencia forward Rodrigo Moreno.

According to AS, owner of the Yorkshire outfit, Andrea Radrizzani and director of football, Victor Orta, have travelled to Spain to hold talks with Valencia regarding their striker.

An agreement is apparently yet to be reached but the Whites are hoping to strike a deal worth approximately €40million. The Spanish outfit could be convinced to sell due to the considerable financial worries that they are suffering. The club have already sold Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin, with Rodrigo likely to follow the two out of the door despite two years remaining on his contract at the Mestalla.

The 29-year-old has been with Valencia since an initial loan deal during the 2014/15 season. In that time, he has made 220 appearances and scored 59 goals.

Should he move to Elland Road, he would significantly improve the current forward line at the club that currently includes just Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts.

Rodrigo would also considerably boost the Whites’ survival hopes following promotion to the Premier League last season. Marcelo Bielsa’s men currently sit at odds of 4/1 with William Hill to be relegated back to the Championship this term.
