Thinking about the great objective of permanence in the highest category, the albiazul club through its president Alfonso Fernández and its sports director Sergio Fernández, prepare a batch of exciting contracts.
With the execution of the purchase option of pivot Antonio Blanco, Alavés reached its fourth signing in this market, and is preparing another two more. Apparently, the objective of both Alfonso Fernández and Sergio and the coach Luis García, is to stay in LaLiga EA Sports at all costs. The investment that they are making at the moment is one of the most significant in the last years of the Vitoria painting.
So far, Alavés have signed the aforementioned midfielder (Antonio Blanco), Ander Guevara (midfielder), Nikolas Maras (defender) and Giuliano Simeone (Forward). The Madrid coach wants another element in attack, and another in the midfield. Right now on Fernández’s agenda, there are two players who meet the requirements of the coach from the capital, and they are in free agency.
Antonio Blanco’s next teammate in Alavés’ midfield
The midfielder of the Basque team could have another new player, and that is Gerard Gumbau, a midfielder who played for Elche CF last season. Despite the fact that the team from Elche offered him renewal with important conditions, the man from Girona does not want to play in the second division. He’s a free agent right now, and ready to listen to offers.
At the moment, the babazorro team’s proposal seems to be the strongest, although the Catalan is assessing his opportunities in Luis García’s squad. Apparently there is a slight overbooking, since his arrival would increase the number of pivots to 3 and midfielders to 7 in total. Even so, it is a positive opportunity to continue in LaLiga EA Sports.
More muscle in Alavés’ offense, after the signing of Antonio Blanco
Lastly, Sergio Fernández is preparing the signing of the Moroccan attacker, Munir El Haddadi, who did not convince anyone at Getafe CF. His performances at the Alfonso Pérez did not surprise coach Quique Flores, let alone José Bordalás. In this way, both parties arranged the termination of the contract, and the African is available.
The signing of Munir could mean double and even triple benefits in the tactical and sporting sense. His natural position is center forward, but he can play both ends without complications. Even knowing that he did not do well in the Azulón team, he scored 7 goals and 1 assist. If this signing is successful, it would be the sixth for Alavés in this market, including Gerard Gumbau and Antonio Blanco.
