The negotiations between the body Txuri Urdin and RB Leipzig for the signing of the Portuguese striker are quite advanced, even if they must first move into the offensive field under the command of Imanol Alguacil.
With the departure of Alexander Sorloth, the manager of the Royal society He asked for a striker from the hierarchy and Olabe gave him the option of André Silva. TO Imanol bailiff He liked the idea and even began to piece together his offensive plan with the Portuguese already included. But to undertake the attractive signing there must be exits in pink, right in front.
The Oriotarra coach has already declared that he will only have three centre-forwards in addition to the wingers and attacking midfielders. In that trio he already has André Silva, but also Umar Sadiq. Third place is between Mohamed-Ali Cho and Carlos Fernández, who leaves a player in the air. The bailiff did not fully count on the attacker, and this time will not be the exception.
Jon Karrikaburu, the striker who doesn’t count at Real Sociedad and the one who will make way for André Silva
Since Navarrese striker Jon Karrikaburu was promoted to San Sebastian’s first team, he has only played half a season, and that was between July 2022 and January 2023. The remaining time of the previous season he spent on loan at CD Leganés where they were satisfied with his work. Coach Borja Jiménez is in fact asking very insistently for him to sign.
Thus, the departure of the ex canterano reala is the one that blocks the arrival of the Portuguese attacker, ready to leave Germany. It is not the first time that the Portuguese striker has set foot in La Liga, as he already did in 2018 with Sevilla FC, where he left good numbers. Now it is Txuri Urdin’s team that awaits his services, with a more than enthusiastic Imanol Alguacil.
CD Leganés will help Real Sociedad with the signing of André Silva
As previously mentioned, the Pepinero team is the favorite to sign striker Elizonzondés. Everything suggests that the operation will be similar to that of the last winter transfer market, but unlike this time it will be a full season loan. There could also be a purchase option with an amount close to 5 million euros.
Real Sociedad are not against the deal, given that Karrikaburu’s farewell brings them closer to signing André Silva. Thus, the roster of 3 center forwards that Bailiff wants will be made up of the Portuguese, the Nigerian and possibly the Sevillian (Carlos Fernández). However, the Basque coach will continue to examine the movements of the French-English (Ali Cho).
