Anderlecht are close to agreeing a deal to sign Kemar Roofe from Leeds, Sky Sports News understands.
The two clubs are discussing the payment structure of the transfer fee for the 26-year-old, who has one year left on his contract at Elland Road.
The Belgian side - managed by former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany - are keen to strengthen their attacking options and have identified Roofe as a main target.
If Roofe will not leave during this transfer window, Leeds could face the prospect of losing him on a free transfer next summer.
The striker joined Leeds from Oxford in 2016 and has since scored 32 goals in 122 matches, ending up as the club's top scorer last season despite sustaining injuries.
He suffered an ankle injury in a pre-season friendly win over Western Sydney Warriors in Australia and will miss the start of the new season, including Leeds' opener at Bristol City on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
Anderlecht have been busy in the market this summer with Manchester City defender Philippe Sandler and former West Ham midfielder Samir Nasri two of the most notable arrivals.
