Leeds United in advanced talks over transfer of La Liga star

Posted by

Leeds United are reportedly in advanced talks over the transfer of Real Sociedad defender Diego Llorente.

The 27-year-old has been a solid performer in La Liga for a number of years now and could be a good addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s newly-promoted side.

According to Bryan Swanson of Sky Sports, Leeds are close to a deal for Llorente, in a move that should excite their fans…

Llorente should help Leeds tighten up at the back, which has looked something of a problem for them so far this season after their promotion to the Premier League in the summer.

Leeds lost 4-3 to Liverpool on the opening day of the season, and then won 4-3 against Fulham in their next match.

While Bielsa will be glad to have the three points, a record of seven goals conceded in just two games is far from ideal, so Llorente makes sense as a target to try and solve that issue.
