Leeds: Victor Orta may look to sign Cucho Hernandez

Leeds: Victor Orta may look to sign Cucho Hernandez -Leeds United News

Leeds United may look at a summer move for Watford forward Cucho Hernandez, according to Leeds Live.

The Lowdown: Orta and Marsch’s meeting

Victor Orta and Jesse Marsch met last week prior to the Whites’ win at Vicarage Road. They discussed the type of player they want to target over the summer and not specific names who may come in or leave the club.

Marsch guided the team to a crucial 3-0 victory over Watford to take a big step closer to safety just days after talking with Orta, with Hernandez – described by Hornets boss Roy Hodgson as a player who ‘doesn’t stop’ – included in the home side’s starting XI.

The Latest: Cucho to Leeds claim

Leeds Live reporter Joshua Hobbs shared a story on Wednesday looking at three relegation-threatened players by whom Orta may be tempted over the summer.

One of those was Hernandez, with Hobbs believing that the Colombian could be one to consider following an impressive haul of seven goal contributions for Watford in the Premier League.

The Verdict: Interesting…

Hernandez is still only 22 years of age and was a bright spark for the Hornets against Leeds on Saturday before having to make way prior to the interval.

Lining out on the left wing, as per SofaScore, he completed three successful dribbles up against Luke Ayling in his 39-minute display, while also winning seven duels and completing 100% of his attempted long balls.

His replacement Emmanuel Dennis struggled up against Ayling, so you can see why Hernandez is being mooted as a possible signing. The Colombia international can play anywhere across the front three, which could be handy following Patrick Bamford’s injury struggles this season.

It does look as if the Hornets will now drop back down to the Championship following that defeat last weekend, so Orta may well look to take advantage by landing Hernandez in a possible cut-price deal.
