Leeds United, led by new manager Daniel Farke, are wasting no time in preparing to reclaim their Premier League membership.
According to The Athletic, the club is willing to pay £2.2 million to get Nottingham Forest attacker Sam Surridge.
Surridge, who has 11 goals in 50 appearances for Forest in all competitions, has attracted the eye of Farke, who has made him a priority target. The striker’s current deal with Nottingham Forest expires in 2024.

Leeds United had a dismal season that saw them relegated from the Premier League. With Farke at the helm, the former Norwich City manager has been charged with taking the squad back to the top level.
Surridge’s possible signing indicates Leeds United’s desire to strengthen their attacking capabilities and boost their chances of achieving promotion.
