​Leeds United have been touted as a potential destination for wonderkid Erling Haaland - as long as they secure promotion to the Premier League this season.


Haaland shot into the limelight this year with a number of stunning performances for Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League, and is currently sitting as the second top goalscorer in the competition behind Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.


A number of clubs have been linked to the signature of the 19-year-old, with Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund the two sides who are at the front of the queue.

However, according to ​Bleacher Report, Leeds are seen as a genuine potential candidates should they achieve promotion this season.


Haaland is looking to make a move to a club that is seen as a 'stepping stone', with ​Leeds and RB Leipzig two clubs mentioned. Julian Nagelsmann has already confirmed that the German side have held talks regarding a move for the player.


However, Marco Biesla's men will be hoping that another club doesn't snap up Haaland in January if they want to sign him. The positive though is that promotion is looking likely for the Whites, as they are currently sitting 11 points clear of Fulham in third place.

Haaland has a connection with Leeds United as his father Alf-Inge played for the Yorkshire outfit for three years from 1997. As a result, the Norwegian striker grew up a supporter of the club and was born there.


Haaland is having a scintillating 2019/20 campaign, bagging 16 goals in 14 league games to go alongside his eight goals in six games in the Champions League.
