Everton are favourites for Beckford, who struck both goals in Leeds' 2-2 draw at Tottenham on Saturday.
Ankergren said: "Becks is just a clinical finisher and he's rapid. Sometimes people say he doesn't work too hard but you have to pick and choose.
"What do you want? Do you want the goals or do you want a striker who works hard? I think I prefer the goals, to be fair."
