Athletic Club have been relatively muted in the transfer market this summer and although recruitment opportunities are limited, the Basque club continue to work to strengthen their squad. One of the names Athletic are eyeing and who may be closer than we think is the promising Urko González.
The pearl that Athletic Club Real Sociedad wants to steal
A rising gem, Urko González is currently in the ranks of the Real Sociedad subsidiary. Despite its understated presence, it has managed to stand out enough to become a rising promise. He even got a chance to make his Real Sociedad first-team debut and made a positive impression in his short stint with the first-team.
What makes González even more attractive is his international experience as a youth player with the Spanish national team. This young talent has represented Spain at youth level, showing his potential and viability.
Although Athletic Club have Urko González in their sights as a key signing for the future, securing his signing will not be an easy task. Aware of the potential of this player, Real Sociedad have secured his contract until 2028, which complicates the negotiations.
However, if Athletic Club is really determined to enlist González’s services, they will have to make significant financial efforts and start negotiations as soon as possible. The prospect of a rising gem like Urko González could be a long-term investment for the club and Athletic are ready to do whatever it takes to ensure his future with the team.
