Girona has a new striker in its sights: Stoichkov. This name is not unknown to the Catalan club, since Juan Diego Molina Martínez, known as ‘Stoichkov’ in football, has once again captured Girona’s attention due to his outstanding performances in the Second Division with Eibar.
He gaditano he has made his mark in the last two seasons with the armorer team, scoring a total of 34 goals. His outstanding performance places him as a possible candidate to make the leap to the First Division, and Girona appears as one of the most likely destinations, according to ‘l’Esportiu’.
The new striker who is in Girona’s sights
It is not the first time that Stoichkov’s name has been mentioned in relation to Girona. Exactly one year ago, the Catalan team eliminated Eibar in the playoff semifinals, thus depriving the Basque team of returning to the top flight. At that time, Quique Cárcel and his team showed interest in the 29-year-old striker, as well as in Edu Expósito, another player who was close to joining Girona.
Despite this background, there are differences between last summer and the present. These differences could translate into facilities or advantages for Eibar to be willing to cede in the operation or reach an agreement with one of Stoichkov’s suitors. Girona will seek to take advantage of this situation to take action and finalize the signing.
After another year without getting promoted, Eibar will be forced to adjust their budget. A third consecutive season in the silver category hinders the chances of retaining the best players, not only because of their football quality, but also because of their high salaries.
Girona presents itself as an interesting option for Stoichkov, who could have the opportunity to make the leap to the First Division and continue his progression in his football career.
