He Girona F.C. is preparing for a historic season with a renowned signing. If it manages to qualify for the Europa Conference League, something that would be a milestone in its more than 90-year history, the Catalan club will activate the principle of agreement that it reached with the Polish striker. Krzysztof Piatek and Hertha Berlin.
As reported by Poland’s national television, TVP Sport, the player’s agent, Szymon Pacanowski, met with Girona’s vice president, Diego Gigliani, last Tuesday to close the deal. Piatek became a sensation in the world of football after his explosive arrival at Genoa and then at Milan. However, since then he has been looking to regain his best level. With five goals in 31 games, he completed another season with ups and downs in his performance at Salernitana. Now, Girona presents itself as a new opportunity for the Polish striker.
The star signing that Girona wants to make if they qualify for Europe
After the relegation of Hertha Berlin, this operation represents a theoretically beneficial opportunity for both parties. Girona will shell out close to 6 million euros, which would make Piatek the most expensive signing in the club’s history, if it finally takes place. Girona also faces the loss of Argentine striker Taty Castellanos, who came to the club on loan and left a good impression with 14 goals. Therefore, the incorporation of Piatek is presented as an opportunity to strengthen the attack and fill the void left by Castellanos.
The signing of Piatek would mean an important step for Girona in its search to consolidate itself in the Spanish football scene and make a leap to European competitions. The fans of the Catalan club are looking forward to the official announcement and are confident that the arrival of the Polish striker will give them even more reasons to celebrate next season.
