Luis de la Fuente Eyes on Lopez

According to the article, Luis de la Fuente will also be closely monitoring Fermin Lopez. A promising player from Barcelona who has not yet made his senior breakthrough for Spain.

During the most recent international break, the 20-year-old received his first call-up to the national Under-21 squad. He will start today against Real Madrid.

For some time now, the Spanish Federation (RFEF) has been monitoring his progress. And is now devising strategies to integrate him into the La Roja team.

Because of Lopez’s impressive development, De la Fuente may even consider calling him up to the senior team for the next window. Which begins in November with Spain’s 2024 European Championship qualifying matches against Cyprus and Georgia.

A good performance in the biggest match of the La Liga calendar could go a long way in helping Fermin break into the Spanish national team setup
