Leeds United have reportedly placed emphasis on signing Mainz 05 striker Jean-Philippe Mateta in the January transfer window.
The Whites have scored 30 goals in their 17 Premier League appearances this term.
According to Football Insider, Leeds United officials are monitoring the development of Mateta ahead of a bid at the midway point of the campaign.
The 23-year-old forward has scored seven goals and registered one assist during his 14 appearances in the German top flight this season.
The Frenchman still has two-and-a-half years left to run on his contract.
Mainz are said to value Mateta at around the £30m mark.
