Leeds United: Whites keen on Ivan Azon

Leeds United: Whites keen on Ivan Azon -Leeds United News

Leeds United are reportedly tracking Real Zaragoza striker Ivan Azon ahead of a possible summer move.

The Lowdown: Azon profiled

Azon is just 19 years of age and is an out and out centre-forward who has been a professional with Zaragoza since 2020. [Transfermarkt]

He has scored 12 goals during his club career so far and is valued at £2.25m by Transfermarkt, with his contract in Spain running until 2024.

The teenager has been a regular in La Liga 2 this season, and has seemingly caught the eye of Victor Orta, who has an ‘extensive structure of Spanish scouts’ at Elland Road.

The Latest: Leeds interest

Sports Witness relayed an update from Heraldo, who linked Leeds with a move for Azon.

They claim that the Whites began scouting Azon over two years ago and are ‘monitoring’ his development, with his name underlined ‘in red’ ahead of a potential move.

Should Marsch stay at Leeds if they are relegated?

Yes, definitely!

The Verdict: Attacking reinforcements needed

Azon has been described as a powerful striker who is good in the air and ‘ideal’ for English football. Leeds are in real danger of dropping back down to the Championship, which is known as a more physical league over the Premier League, so he could be a shrewd signing as the Whites continue to look to bring a number of young stars to Yorkshire.

Of course, there is still a chance of Premier League survival this season, but whatever division Leeds find themselves in next year, attacking reinforcements appear to be needed.

Leeds have three centre-forwards – Patrick Bamford and 20-year-olds Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood – so throwing Azon into the mix could well be on the cards, especially if the club drop down to the second tier.
