Cristhian Stuani is in the ‘orbit’ of Leeds United, according to El Observador in Uruguay.

Marcelo Bielsa guided the Whites to Premier League promotion, and the Argentine coach ‘thinks’ of the Girona star to bolster his strike force for next season.

Girona have scored 43 goals in the league this term, and 29 of them have been netted by the former Middlesbrough man.

The striker is also the top scorer of the Segunda División, and has 10 goals more than second top scorer, Watford owned Luis Suárez.

Victor Orta’s presence at the English side also provides ‘added value’. The Leeds sporting director knows the 33-year-old first hand as he signed the South American for Middlesbrough in 2015.

Girona are in contention to achieve promotion to La Liga, but they first need to overcome UD Almería in the play-offs.

After that, Stuani will analyse the offers he has, and according to the report, Leeds will be an ‘interesting temptation’ for the attacker, as long as they submit a formal offer and the ‘numbers of the contract seduce him’.

It’ll be interesting to see if Leeds will consider bringing 33-year-old Stuani back to England, especially after he managed only four goals in 23 Premier League matches for Boro during the 2016/17 season.
