Leeds: Whites make contact with Javi Galan -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has reportedly made contact with Huesca defender Javi Galan over a summer move to Elland Road.

The Lowdown: Leeds search for new left-back

Assuming Ezgjan Alioski leaves the Whites this summer, it is imperative that Bielsa signs a new left-back in order to fill the void left by the North Macedonian.

A host of names have been linked with joining Leeds, from Nicolas Tagliafico to Junior Firpo, and Galan is another thought to be in the mix.

The 26-year-old averaged an impressive 3.3 dribbles per game in La Liga last season, which was only bettered by Lionel Messi (4.5) in the Spanish top flight.

The Latest: Whites make move for Galan

According to Football Insider, Bielsa has made a move to bring Galan to Elland Road, speaking to the Spaniard about how he could fit into this Leeds side.

It is stated that the 26-year-old is now the Whites’ first-choice left-back target, even though they know there will be competition for his signature.

The Verdict: Ideal Alioski replacement?

Should Alioski leave, Galan looks like he could be the perfect candidate to come in and make the left-back spot his own. His aforementioned dribbling ability highlights his attack-minded full-back nature, which is likely to appeal to Bielsa and suit his bold style of play.

Not only that, but Galan can defend when he needs to, averaging 2.4 tackles per game in the league last season, as well as 1.4 clearances. This well-rounded defender would appear to be the right man for Leeds to bring in to fill Alioski’s shoes.
