Leeds United striker Ross McCormack will be targeted by Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers in the January transfer window, according to The Daily Mail.

The Scottish international has scored 11 Championship goals for the club this season, and lies second in the scoring charts behind Southampton's Rickie Lambert.

McCormack's form, along with fellow Scot Robert Snodgrass, has propelled Leeds into the top six in the Championship, however, the striker's form could spark bids from the Premier League.

After surviving on the final day of the season, Wolves have struggled for goals in the new campaign, netting just 16 goals in the league this season, the joint third lowest in the division.

Meanwhile Blackburn, who have had no such scoring problems, may call upon McCormack to spearhead their attack to relinquish the burden of scoring goals on Yakubu, who scored four in the recent win over Swansea City.

Both sides currently lie in the bottom four in the Premier League, with Rovers having been downed by Sunderland on Sunday.

Leeds meanwhile, have preferred to use their top scorer from the bench in recent weeks, utilising him as a second half substitute during the draw with Watford.

Chairman Ken Bates will be hoping to bat away any bids for the Leeds frontman, who could prove pivotal to a promotion bid during the second half of the season.
