Leeds United reportedly could try to sign West Ham United striker Michail Antonio this summer.

According to a report from Football Transfers, West Ham striker Michail Antonio is firmly on the radar of Leeds in the summer transfer window.

The Hammers forward is still very much a vital player for Hammers boss David Moyes.

Moyes is actually on the hunt for a new striker, but surely one will only come in if Antonio leaves. And it seems as though that could very well happen…

Leeds could try to sign West Ham ace Michail Antonio

Football Transfers reckon that Micky could be an option for Leeds United this summer.

I have to say, I would be absolutely shocked if Antonio moves down to the Championship to join Leeds.

If he leaves West Ham, I expect him to join a Premier League club like Wolves or Everton. However, he’s most likely to head out to Saudi Arabia I reckon.

Moyes won’t want to lose Antonio – he has begun the 2023/24 season in fine form. However, he did only start 21 Premier League games for the Hammers last season (Transfermarkt).

And if the Scot signs a new striker this summer, the Jamaica international definitely won’t be a guaranteed starter.

Michail Antonio has been a fine servant for West Ham over the past eight years, but now might just be the right time for him to move on.

That said, I still can’t see him joining Leeds this summer.
