Around a week ago, we covered claims from Ecuador that Leeds United are interested in 20-year-old winger Alexander Alvarado.

The Championship club had sent a scout to the U20 World Cup and Alvarado had impressed.

The youngster currently plays for SD Aucas, who feature in the Ecuadorian first division. He’d been a starter in the team this season, but had to leave them to join the U20 national team, missing the last few games.

Now further claims come from Eduador.

El Telegrafo report Leeds have ‘asked’ for the player, and he’s taking his time over a decision on his future. It’s claimed he’s going to ‘calmly’ analyse the approaches he has, and make the best decision for his career and family.

Alvarado has a six month old son, Thiago, and what’s best for the youngster’s future will play a part in his decision making.

There’s still no explanation of how the footballer would get a work permit to be able to sign for Leeds United. If he doesn’t have an EU passport, it’s going to be difficult.
