Leeds: Whites eye up move for Javi Galan

Leeds: Whites eye up move for Javi Galan - Leeds United

Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Huesca defender Javi Galan this summer, as the Whites continue to look at new left-backs.

The Lowdown: Left-back search

Marcelo Bielsa will no doubt be eyeing up reinforcements all over the pitch in the next transfer window, but left-back looks a particularly pressing area.

Ezgjan Alioski still looks like he could leave and it is vital that the North Macedonian is replaced, with a lack of options there without him.

The likes of Romain Perraud and Nicolas Tagliafico are just two of the players who have been linked and now a new name has emerged.

The Latest: Leeds keen on Galan

According to Football Insider, Leeds are interested in signing Huesca full-back Galan and have even made their initial approach already – he featured in 37 of his side’s La Liga games last season.

The 26-year-old is considered a cheaper option than Perraud, with his release clause thought to have dropped from £7million to £3.5million.

The Verdict: Exciting dribbling machine

Galan could be an exciting addition for Leeds, particularly when it comes to his attacking quality from left-back.

Incredibly, Spaniard’s average of 3.3 dribbles per game in the league last season is more than Raphinha (1.9) and Jack Harrison (1.2) combined, highlighting his risk-taking ability on the ball.

Only one goal and two assists does suggest that a lack of end product could be a potential issue, but under Bielsa’s tutelage, perhaps Galan could go up a gear and add the quality in the final third to his obvious abilities on the ball.
