With the signing of the Norwegian striker, the Submarine completed its fourth offensive addition and the seventh in the entire squad. Now Setién’s objective is to reinforce his defense where Pau Torres has left a huge hole.
There is no doubt that Villarreal CF acquired great offensive muscle with the latest signing, who turned out to be Alexander Sorloth, a top scorer. Real Sociedad is witness to that, where he scored 16 goals and provided 4 assists last season. Surprisingly the Nordic went to the Yellow Submarinewhere Quique Setién couldn’t be happier.
Sorloth was Villarreal CF’s seventh signing in this market, and the fourth for the offensive field. Ben Brereton Díaz (far left), Denis Suárez (creative midfielder) and Ilias Akhomach (far right) had already arrived. In the midfield they also added muscle with the signings of Ramón Terrats (pivot) and Santi Comesaña (midfielder).
Sign the relief of Pau Torres, the objective of Villarreal CF after closing Sorloth
The fans of the Castellón team have been euphoric with the signing of the Nordic striker, and they have a good spine for what is to come in defense. They have already hired central defender Matteo Gabbia, who comes on loan from AC Milan, but the Cantabrian coach feels that he needs a player with more defensive characteristics and a good passing game.
In this sense, the option of the Colombian Yerry Mina has been quite liked by the Santander coach, who has not hesitated to say yes, once they have put the option on the table. Right now the coffee defender is in free agency, after terminating his contract with Everton. He had the possibility of returning to the American continent, but his preferences are to continue in the European elite.
Mina agents are already speaking with Villarreal CF
Jorge Rodríguez and Miguel Ángel Tena are already behind the desks analyzing the signing of the former Barcelona defender, and they have concluded that it is the best option for what Setién is needing in his defensive approach. The tall, 1.95-meter tall defender is quite lethal in the air both to defend and to damage corner kicks.
It is a plus that the yellow coaching staff has valued, and for this reason they have not hesitated to say yes to Yerry Mina. Its value on the market is 10 million euros, and its record could be around between 5 and 7 million euros per season. Currently, Villarreal CF is the team closest to his entourage, and behind Sorloth he could become the eighth signing of the Villarreal team.
