Leeds United fans on Twitter are liking the look of Andre Carrillo.
Leeds United fans on Twitter want the club to sign Andre Carrillo.
The Peru winger impressed in his country's World Cup opener on Saturday, though the Peruvians slumped to a 1-0 defeat by Denmark.
Leeds could well be linked with a number of South American players this summer following their appointment of high-profile Argentine coach Marcelo Bielsa on Friday.
And some fans of the Elland Road club reckon that Carrillo - who spent last season on loan at Watford from Benfica - would be an exciting addition by Bielsa this summer.

Is a move likely? Probably not, for a number of reasons.
Firstly, Carrillo, if he continues in the same vein in Russia, is going to court interest from a lot bigger clubs than Leeds this summer, but he is also out of their price range.
The 27-year-old attacker, who scored once in 28 Premier League outings last term, would cost Watford around £17.4 million if the Hornets wanted to make their loan permanent, according to The Hertfordshire Mercury, and the Whites do not boast that sort of financial muscle.
Leeds fans have the right idea, though. At the moment, Bielsa only has Egzjan Alioski, Hadi Sacko and Pawel Cibicki as right-wing options. Alioski is very decent, but the other two aren't good enough and United could and should strengthen that position.
It's just unlikely that Carrillo will be the man who is signed.
