Leeds: Whites interested in signing Chimy Avila -Leeds United News

Leeds United are interested in signing Osasuna attacker Chimy Avila during the January transfer window, according to a new transfer rumour.

The Lowdown: Avila a key man for Osasuna

The 28-year-old is an undisputed key man for his current club, scoring six goals in just 11 starts in La Liga so far this season, also getting one assist for good measure.

Avila’s overall tally for Osasuna currently stands at 24 goals in 81 appearances and he signed a new deal there until 2026 earlier this year.

While Leeds potentially look to make reinforcements in January, it seems as though the Argentine could be a target.

The Latest: Leeds eyeing up move

According to one Spanish outlet [via MOT Leeds News], the Whites are eyeing up a move for Avila in the next transfer window, with Sevilla also interested.

He has a release clause of approximately £26million, although Leeds are only willing to offer around £20million for his services.

The Verdict: Slightly risky signing?

In terms of ability, Avila could be a brilliant signing for Leeds, possessing plenty of experience and showing that he can excel in one of Europe’s top leagues.

The one concern would be the attacker’s injury record, however, having missed chunks of action over the years, including two cruciate ligament issues.

Should Leeds feel confident that Avila has overcome those issues sufficiently enough, making a move for him in January could be a masterstroke, providing them with more goals and all-round attacking threat.
