Leeds United were shocking in their 1-0 defeat in the Premier League against Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
It highlighted the lack of options that Marcelo Bielsa has in his squad, with the same players failing to recreate their success from earlier in the season.
Despite this, the January window is expected to be quiet at Elland Road, with Bielsa and Victor Orta not massive fans of this month.
Could that soon change?
Andrea Radrizzani was spotted liking a Tweet on Saturday evening, with a Leeds fan asking the chairman to get Rodrigo De Paul on a plane to Yorkshire.
A Whites fans shared the picture on his personal Twitter account, simply asking fans to remain calm over the possibility of a signing.

Udinese have stood firm on De Paul, and recently claimed that the Argentinian international wouldn’t be leaving this month, if not at all.
Phil Hay reported at the start of January that Leeds are also unlikely to revisit their interest after they failed with their initial approach over the summer.
Mateusz Klich looked shocking against Brighton, and his lack of competition is really starting to harm the Whites and their need for positive results.
De Paul is the obvious answer in midfield, and Bielsa could unleash him into the Premier League perfectly should Leeds blow their budget on him.
Only Thomas Muller and Jack Grealish have completed more key passes this season than De Paul according to WyScout.
As well as that, only Lionel Messi and Bruno Fernandes have completed more through balls too – De Paul makes things happen.
This means nothing, but we would be ecstatic should De Paul arrive this month – make it happen Radz.
