Leeds United have been linked with a move for the Real Sociedad defender Diego Llorente this summer.
The Whites tried to sign Ben White earlier in the summer but Brighton refused to sell the player. Leeds went on to sign Robin Koch from Germany instead.
However, the German hasn’t been at his best so far. He has made two costly errors in the two opening Premier League games and it seems that Marcelo Bielsa is looking to bring in another quality centre back.
Llorente has done well for Sociedad and he could prove to be a quality addition to the Leeds United back four. The 27-year-old can play as a defensive midfielder as well and his versatility will be an added bonus.
The Whites have been very impressive going forward so far but they need to tighten up at the back if they want to secure a respectable finish in the Premier League this season.
It will be interesting to see if they can agree on a deal with the Spanish club for Diego Llorente. Apparently, the transfer is close.

Some Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the potential signing of Llorente and here is what they had to say.
Definitely need another CB without question, well done Victor once again 👍

This is excellent – we 100% need to prioritise strengthening the defence rather than attack – first two games demonstrate we have enough fire power up front. Don’t get me wrong I’d love de Paul & James but we need a centre back and left back more

Great news, Phil. I imagine this means the club will no longer be in for De Paul? Be a great bit of business to get Llorente and James in for the price of one!
