On a hectic Sunday, Valencia closed three players on loan until the end of the season. After several months demanding some reinforcement for the staff, three have arrived at once. Two of them became officers shortly after landing in the city.
The third is scheduled to arrive today, Monday, the last market day, to close the circle. One player per line that the club offers to a Javi Gracia who had completely ignored the market to avoid troubles like those of the summer. Cutrone, Ferro, and Oliva. A trio of players little known to the amateur.
The Pokemon CutronePerhaps
the Italian is the one with the most poster of the three. At 23, Patrick has lost the magic with which he appeared in Milan. His quality made Wolverhampton spend 28 million euros in 2019 to strengthen the team. But his performance away from San Siro has slumped. He spent a year on loan to Fiorentina and lowered the level.
Nuno recovered it, but the arrival of William Jose has closed the doors definitively and it was necessary to find a new way out. Valencia was the chosen place. Cutrone is an explosive striker, who can play alongside Maxi on the left-wing and is a good option in space. In Milan, he earned the nickname Pokemon for his explosiveness.
Ferro For Defense
Benfica product almost 100%. Ferro, who will be 24 in March, was about to close his loan at the beginning of the season. But Lim regretted it at the last minute and did not give the go-ahead. Six months later he arrives in Valencia in search of minutes. In Benfica, he has practically not played.
Four loose games and sentenced time and again to the bench. The Portuguese, to whom Otamendi and Vertonghen blocked the way, is a center back to play close behind, with good ball output and good aerial play (1.93m). However, in the open field, he suffers in speed, and in Lisbon, in the little, he has played he has made the odd disconnection error that has condemned him.
The Uruguayan Oliva
The last to appear on stage is the Uruguayan from Cagliari Christian Oliva. A tough midfielder, the kind that marks the territory, more than necessary for a squad without a ‘stopper’ since the departure of Coquelin and Kondogbia. Raised in the Nacional quarry, he meets the parameters of an Uruguayan pivot. Fight and control of the game, and the occasional hard tackle.
This season he has played ten games and comes straight from playing 90 ‘in the League. It is, of the three on loan, the only one that has not yet been made official, but the one that reaches the team the most. Perhaps the one that Javi Gracia can use before in conditions. Toto Oliva, as they call him on the field, started playing with six pure, although in Italy he has played games a little more advanced. Without a doubt, a reinforcement that the Solers, Racic, and company will appreciate.
