Leeds willing to pay more than Sevilla for Javi Galan


Leeds United have been linked with a move for the Huesca defender Javi Galan recently.

According to Radio Huesca, the Premier League side have a strong interest in the 26-year-old left-back and they are prepared to pay up for the defender who has a release clause of around €4 million.

Apparently, Sevilla are keen on signing the player as well but the Spanish outfit are reluctant to trigger the clause.

Galan has had an impressive season in the Spanish league this past year and Leeds could certainly use a quality attacking full-back like him next year.

With Ezgjan Alioski set to leave the club when his contract expires, signing a quality left-back will be a top priority for the Whites. Marcelo Bielsa needs someone who will come in and make an immediate impact.

Galan is quite impressive going forward and he could form an impressive partnership with Jack Harrison down the left flank.

The 26-year-old was one of the best dribblers in the Spanish league this past season and he could add a new dimension to the Leeds attack next year.

The reported asking price seems quite reasonable for a player in his peak and it will be interesting to see if Leeds can finalise the move in the coming days.

The chance to play in the Premier League for a manager like Bielsa will probably be tempting for the player and it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can sort out an agreement soon.
