The transfer market continues to move and Celta de Vigo is looking for a replacement for Gabri Veiga, who is close to leaving the team for the 40 million euros established in his termination clause. Although big clubs like FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG have decided to withdraw from the bidding, Celta continues with their plan and already has a player in mind to fill the vacant place.
The name that has emerged recently and has aroused great interest in the sky-blue club is that of Drink Basic. Although he is not well known in the Santander League, the Croatian footballer is a full international with his team and currently plays for an important Italian team, Lazio. His experience and quality make him an interesting candidate to reinforce Celta’s midfield.
Celta’s chosen one to replace Gabri Veiga
Although the negotiations between Celta de Vigo and Lazio have not yet started, it is known that the name of Toma Basic is on the table. The 26-year-old midfielder has shown his versatility and ability both in defensive tasks and in the construction of the game. With a height of 1.90 meters, he can occupy a lot of field and has the facility to join the attack and score goals.
Basic’s experience in Serie A and his ability to adapt to different tactical schemes make him an attractive signing for coach Rafa Benítez. However, before advancing in the negotiations, Celta de Vigo must resolve the matter of the departure of Gabri Veiga, which has become more complicated than expected, since only teams like Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham remain in the bid. .
Celta de Vigo fans hope that the club can complete both the sale of Gabri Veiga and the arrival of Toma Basic to strengthen the team for next season.
