Steve Evans has refused to rule out a move for Norwich City duo Lewis Grabban and Kyle  Lafferty, but also admitted Leeds United already have good strikers available to them.

The Whites triumphed 2-0 against Wycombe Wanderers in a friendly on Friday night, with Lee Erwin, returning to the club after a loan spell at Bury, scoring the opener.

Mirco Antenucci has also been in good goalscoring form in recent weeks, while Chris Wood followed up his strike against Huddersfield Town last weekend with a goal for New Zealand on Thursday.

However, Leeds have been linked with a series of moves for attacking players since Evans took charge. Lafferty has asked for first team football after struggling to get into the side at Norwich City, while word over a potential move for his teammate Grabban picked up pace last week.

When asked about a potential bid for either player, Evans said: “You never have enough outstanding strikers. The players you’ve just mentioned, Kyle Lafferty and Lewis Grabban, who I managed at Rotherham, these players are outstanding strikers.

“We’ve got some decent players here. The boy Antenucci was sat on the bench tonight and he’s a goalscorer.”
