In one of the weirder stories to unfold this December, Leeds have allegedly been soughting after the signing of Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani.

This would be a very, very surprising move and the credibility of the rumour is something worth holding reservations over, for certain.

The background of such a move is inevitably linked with the potential deal between Leeds and Qatar Sports Investment, the consortium who currently own PSG, Cavani’s current club.

The Uruguayan international has been at Paris Saint-Germain since 2013, previously he was at Napoli and Palermo. At 32, he’s coming to the end of what strikers might call their “apex”.

Another thing to consider is that Victor Orta and Marcelo Bielsa have both previously spoken of Leeds having a rather quiet January transfer window and have maintained they will only make a signing in exceptional circumstance, namely an injury or someone unexpectedly leaving. Patrick Bamford, Leeds senior striker, has been in fine form of late and it’s not indicated Leeds are looking to replace him.
