After a very tough season in which they were about to lose the category, Luis Campos is completing great signings for a very exciting project at Celta
After closing the season in the worst possible way, flirting with relegation and an institutional crisis, louis fields a new project has started Celtic. A project that began with the arrival of Rafa Benítez on the bench, which restored the enthusiasm of the fans, who hope to experience a very special season. And it is not necessary to forget that the Vigo club will celebrate its centenary.
So far the project has not started badly, as in addition to the award-winning coach, players like Carles Pérez, Carlos Dotos, Jonathan Bamba and Manu Sánchez have also arrived. But not only that, but everything indicates that Gabri Veiga will continue at the club, to which must be added Luis Campos’s interest in a great goalkeeper for Celta.
Luis Campos wants a goalkeeper with a great future at Celta
One of Celta’s big problems last season was the goal. Marchesín was seriously injured and he still has several months left to fully recover. Likewise, Rubén Blanco is close to being transferred to Olympique de Marseille, so Iván Villar will be the only goalkeeper available for Rafa Benítez.
Due to this situation, Luis Campos has been looking for a goalkeeper in the transfer market. And one of the most interesting options on the table is that of Alban Lafont, a French international soccer player in lower categories who a few years ago was one of the most promising young soccer players in the world.
Lafont, on the Celta list
Because of injuries and making wrong decisions in his career, Lafont has not reached the level that was intuited. However, he is still a player of only 24 years who has shown a very good level in Ligue 1. That is why Celta is very interested in taking over his services for next season.
As we know, Luis Campos is in charge of this negotiation at Celta. A negotiation that could be very beneficial for the club, since the goalkeeper born in Burkina Faso has only one year left on his contract. That is why they could get his signing for a low financial amount, ensuring a goalkeeper for the coming years.
