Indian Super League outfit Jamshedpur FC are interested in the signing of veteran attacker Jonathan Soriano. The 35-year-old Spanish striker is currently playing in La Liga 2 for CD Castellon.
According to the recent rumors by Transfermarkt, Jonathan’s market value has dropped from 9.16 crores to 1.66 crores in less than a year. And the situation between Valskis and Jamshedpur’s chief is also not looking good. So, he might leave in the next transfer window. This could be the perfect time to bring Soriano into the club. Even though Valskis still has his contract till 2022.
Valskis has been the main man for Jamshedpur FC, Last season he has scored 8 goals. Valskis have also won the League’s top scorer award with Chennaiyin FC before joining the Red miners.
Jonathan Soriano has also had a lengthy and healthy career. Jonathan have played for Espanyol, Barcelona B, B Girona, and CD Castellon. He holds the experience that Jamshedpur would need after the exit of Valskis. Soriano has spent the majority of his career playing for Red Bull Salzburg. Soriano has an amazing record of 122 goals in 144 matches in the Austrian first division for Red Bull Salzburg. Rumors are also saying that not only Jamshedpur FC but ISL giants like ATK Mohun Bagan, and FC Goa are also keeping tabs on the RCD Espanyol graduate.
Jonathan Soriano’s current form in the La Liga 2 amid Jamshedpur Transfer Speculation
Soriano’s current form has not been impressive at all. The 35-year-old has gone without a club for 6 months after his exit from Girona. Only to join RCD Castellon in March 2020 when has played only 191 minutes and has contributed only 1 assist to the club. This shows the reason behind the fall of his market value.
On the other hand, Jamshedpur FC have also had a very unimpressive season. The club managed to win only 7 games out of 20 matches and ended up in the 6th position in the League table. This signing may do wonders to the Red Miners if the once-famous striker managed to pull up something sensational. Or this signing might be disastrous for the club if the Spanish Striker fails to perform and without their main man Valskis. There would be no way out of this situation.
It all depends on the performance of the veteran, but still, it is too soon to tell. Things are still not in motion for the Club and the players.
