Leeds: Whites handed Gonzalo Plata blow

Leeds: Whites handed Gonzalo Plata blow -Leeds United News

Leeds United appear to have been handed a blow in their pursuit of Sporting CP winger Gonzalo Plata.

The Lowdown: Leeds links

The Whites have been name-checked with an interest in the 21-year-old this month as the club look to bolster their wide ranks.

Jack Harrison and Raphinha have been linked with Elland Road exits, which has resulted in Leeds looking at the Ecuador international, described as ‘super’ by journalist Sam Tighe.

Plata, who actually shares the same agency as six Whites players, spent last season on loan at Real Valladolid in Spain’s second tier, helping them finish second and earn promotion back to La Liga.

The Latest: Transfer update

MOT Leeds News relayed an update from Monday morning’s edition of Portuguese newspaper O Jogo regarding Plata.

They claimed that a sale is now complicated after Plata suffered an injury for Ecuador against Cape Verde and left in an ambulance.

The report adds that the winger could be injured for two months which would make it difficult for Leeds or any other interested side to seal a move until mid-August.

The Verdict: Not a priority right now

A move for Plata shouldn’t be viewed as a priority at this moment in time. Leeds have already brought in Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen and are now looking to land defensive midfielder Marc Roca.

Should they sign the Bayern Munich man, another central midfielder could still be required after Manchester City launched a bid for Kalvin Phillips.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

A centre-forward also seems needed following Patrick Bamford’s injury problems last season, so although Leeds have been handed a blow in their pursuit of Plata, it shouldn’t be viewed as a disaster at this moment in time.
