Leeds United are reportedly readying an offer for Sporting CP attacker Gonzalo Plata.
The Lowdown: Plata profiled
The Whites have been name-checked with an interest in the 21-year-old this month as the club look to bolster their attacking ranks.
Primarily a right-winger, Plata can also play on the left and is valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt.
The Ecuador international spent last season on loan at Spanish side Real Valladolid, where he scored six times and registered five assists, and that form appears to have caught the eye of Leeds chiefs.
The Latest: Transfer update
According to an outlet local to his temporary home, Diario de Valladolid (via Pucela Fichajes), Leeds are now preparing an offer close to €10m (£8.7m) for Plata.
The report adds that the Whites are also willing to offer the forward a salary in the region of €2m-a-year, which would work out at just over £33,000-a-week.
This comes despite news earlier this week that the player had suffered a serious injury while on international duty.
The Verdict: Not waiting around
The Whites appear to be closing in on Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca, who is set to undergo a medical later this week.
It now looks as if Victor Orta is already working on a fourth transfer, with Andrea Radrizzani and the 49ers Enterprises willing to write another multi-million cheque.
