The Leganés press to tie the Nigerian Dessers before the closing

In Belgium, the press, Genk and the player's environment announce the transfer of this international striker (26 years old) on loan. In Butarque they do not see it so clearly.


The Leganés faces the last 24 hours of the transfer market focused on two positions: center forward and right winger. These are the two objectives (especially the first) that the sports department has set itself to incorporate before the current window closes. In the case of '9', the Blue and Whites negotiate the arrival of Cyrel Dessers, Nigerian international (although born in Belgium) from Genk. It aims to be the most advanced option, although it might not be the only one.

The local Belgian press reports that the start is near. Genk sources consulted by AS through the Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri also point to this line and point out that the footballer has already left Belgium for Spain. In addition, the footballer's environment insists that the beginning of an agreement for a transfer that would take the form of a free loan, but without a purchase option for Leganés, is very close.Pending Onuachu

The Genk wants to have options to recover it before the possibility that one of its stars, Onuachu, leaves in some of the next windows. In fact, the possible sale of this battering ram, also Nigerian, is one of the issues that could slow down the operation. If in the next few hours there were a turn in the negotiations and Onuachu left, Dessers could stay in Genk.

An option that is not far-fetched either. In Leganés they insist that the operation is not as advanced as claimed in Belgium and they show extreme caution in the possibility of signing a reinforcement that is one of the options to shield (more if possible) the Leganés forward.Meanwhile, the club does not rule out alternatives if the Dessers route falls, although for now it is only working on the incorporation of the Nigerian. That is, alternatives have been explored without submitting offers in parallel. Only the non-incorporation of Dessers would activate that plan B.

Potential departures

In addition, in Leganés they are also awaiting potential departures. One could be that of Jonathan Silva, for whom Getafe is pending. According to sources consulted by AS, the azulones would have presented a formal offer of 2 million euros, insufficient for a Leganés that would claim 4.5 million for his departure. They are 1.5 million more than the three that it cost and that Leganés always claimed to open the exit door. The impossibility of incorporating a replacement is the reason why the price has risen, although sources of the negotiation believe that finally Leganés could accept an offer of three million.In addition, the club has told Recio to look for a way out, but the player is not about to leave. Except for a single opportunity or extreme pressure, his intentions are to stay and convince Garitano that he may have a place despite the high competition he has in the position: Perea, Gaku, Doukouré and Rubén Pardo.

Another name that has been offered to various teams in recent hours is Juan Muñoz. The Sevillian forward is not happy with his potential secondary role this season and his environment is studying future options that, for now, Leganés does not contemplate unless there is a very juicy offer.
