Leeds: Jesus Vazquez linked with Elland Road move -Leeds United News

Leeds United have been linked with a move for Valencia starlet Jesus Vazquez.

The Lowdown: Vazquez profiled

The 19-year-old has progressed through Valencia’s academy, making 22 senior appearances for his current employers. The youngster is primarily a left-back but can also play as a left midfielder or a left winger if required. [Transfermarkt]

A Spain under-19 international, Vazquez has made four La Liga appearances during the current campaign, two of which have come as a starter.

The Latest: Leeds name-checked

Sports Witness relayed updates from Spain regarding Vazquez on Thursday in which Leeds were name-checked. They claimed that Vazquez’s profile is ‘liked’ by the Whites, with Inter Milan and AZ Alkmaar also keen.

The report adds that the teenager has changed agents, who have recently been to England, Italy and the Netherlands to test the market.

The Verdict: Shrewd move?

Leeds could do with adding to their left-back ranks in 2023, with centre-back Pascal Struijk filling in for Jesse Marsch’s side so far this term due to Junior Firpo’s injury in pre-season.

The Dutch defender has actually been the club’s best-performing player, as per WhoScored, but you’d like to think that his long-term future will be as a centre-back.

True or False? Jesse Marsch played for the USA at the World Cup!

Therefore, bringing in an exciting young player like Vazquez to possibly rival Struijk and Firpo could be a wise move by Elland Road officials, who have reaped the rewards of signing a number of teenage talents and turning them into first-team players.

You only need to look at the likes of Joe Gelhardt and Crysencio Summerville as evidence of that strategy from Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta.
