Leeds United are once again challenging for promotion this season from the Sky Bet Championship and look a side clearly capable of getting themselves into the Premier League come the end of the campaign.
The men from Elland Road play some of the best football in the country and would be a fine fit in the top flight under manager Marcelo Bielsa.
They have to earn it, though, and the Argentine will be scheming away in the international break, thinking of ways that he can improve his side further.
Indeed, we’re about a month and a half away from the January transfer window and that gives the Whites to sign some players – if that is what they wish to do.
According to Teamtalk, they are interested in Middlesbrough defender Daniel Ayala and that has got plenty talking on social media.
Let’s look at what Whites fans have said about the centre-half on Twitter:
Absolutely not having this Daniel Ayala to #lufc link coming from the Boro press. That has got to be agent planting a story. If Ben White is the perfect Bielsa ball centre back, Ayala is nothing like that style. Just can't see Marcelo being interested. pic.twitter.com/s5zXbV9l0M

Daniel Ayala would be a great signing. Don't get caught up in this 'He isn't a Bielsa player'.
League One Liam wasn't a Bielsa player and look how that's gone. we are vulnerable aerially and from set pieces. Something Ayala is notoriously good at. He'd also cost peanuts #lufc

Ayala White and Cooper as a back 3 would be pretty decent tbf #lufc

Possible Ayala interest because Ben White is heading back to Brighton in Jan?! Maybe reading too much into it #lufc

Daniel Ayala is a lot better backup CB than Berardi. I’d take him #lufc

Ayala. I really don't know how to feel about that one. #lufc
