Leeds United are preparing a move for South American attacking midfielder Emiliano Buendia according to reliable journalist Alan Nixon.

The Sun correspondent Nixon has claimed on his personal Twitter account that the Whites are “lining up a move” to sign the 20-year-old midfielder.

Buendia is currently plying his trade on loan at La Liga 2 side Cultural Leonesa, while Spanish top-flight club Getafe are his parent club.

Buendia is an Argentina Under-20 international and his usually utilized in the number 10 role.

What’s good in the move for Leeds United?

Emiliano Buendia is a fairly unknown talent to English audiences, but the Argentine is carving out a promising career in Spain.

The attacker has begun the new season in good form for the La Liga 2 side in Spain’s second flight and is currently on a season-long loan.

Emiliano Buendia has made five appearances so far this season, netting one goal and creating two assists for his teammates in return.

However, despite not being familiar to English audiences, Buendia is recognized for being a technically gifted player and is someone that would fit well into Thomas Christiansen’s system.

How likely is the deal going to happen?

Leeds move for Buendia seems like a long way off happening and is at the very early stages of the season.

The Whites are reportedly preparing a move for the attacking midfielder, but the fact he is currently on a season-long loan suggest it could happened next summer.

The creative playmaker is the exact player who fits the bill for Leeds boss as Christiansen has shown he is willing to bring in unknown talents from abroad.

F/W’s view

It would be a decent move for the Whites to sign the promising youngster that has experience in La Liga and would form a formidable partnership alongside the likes of Pablo Hernandez and Samu Siaz.
