Injection of talent in the offensive field, for the tactical scheme of Mr. Rojillo in 2024. The objectives will be other, and beyond the stay in the first division, it will be to return to the international scene.
He CA Osasuna He still has a small chance of qualifying for an international tournament, and with that goal in mind, Jagoba Arrasate already has his first signing. The Basque coach knows that if it is not this season where his team will get a place in the European tournament, it will be next season. But first, they must sign a Forward with a lot of goal, that does not fail in a single game.
Osasuna’s sports management would be in charge of the operation of an attacker from the Premier League, whose contract expires in 2024. However, the striker wants to get out of there, since it is most likely that they will be relegated to the Championship. We are talking about the Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho, who plays for Leicester City.
According to sources close to CA Osasuna, Kelechi Iheanacho would have already said yes to Jagoba Arrasate
Everything indicates that the rojillo box is very close to finalizing the signing of the Nigerian attacker, after he told his team that he wanted to leave. Although he has one more year left on his contract, the fact of being very close to relegation demoralizes the African, who wants to try other leagues. And it is that in addition to the Premier League, he has not played in another.
The figure in which the 26-year-old player is valued is 17 million euros, but Braulio Vázquez is preparing an offer to request the transfer of the attacker, with a non-mandatory purchase option. If carried out in 2024, it would be less than 10 kilos, but before that, Kelechi Iheanacho must demonstrate his scoring ability at the Navarrese club.
Kelechi Iheanacho, Chimy Ávila and Ante Budimir, Jagoba Arrasate’s offensive hat trick at Osasuna 2023-24
From now on, the Biscayan coach is devising his offensive trident, which could be made up of his two most outstanding forwards, (Ávila and Budimir) and also the Nigerian’s scoring figure. Although he is positioned in the center of the attack at Leicester City, he can play on the far right, where Rubén García is currently playing.
Kelechi Iheanacho’s versatility allows him to also play in zone 9 of the offensive field, when the Croatian striker is not available. Undoubtedly, the signing of the African will increase the scoring quota, a factor that Osasuna needs to finish in the top positions, and improve the campaign achieved by Jagoba Arrasate this year.
