The trickle of transfers begins to precipitate like a summer shower in Vigo. After several weeks without movement Celta has managed to close the signing of midfielders Óscar Rodríguez and Luca de la Torre in the last few hours, while the arrival of central defender Unai Núñez is also complete.

The first is already in Vigo and will be officially announced soon after passing the obligatory medical examination. On a personal level, the details of the contract that will join the American with the Celtic team are still being finalized.

Luca de la Torre ready to climb

Luca de la Torre is a personal commitment by Luís Campos to strengthen the midfield. The American player arrived in Europe at a very young age, where he trained in the lower categories of Fulham until making his debut in the first team. However, he did not finish exploding in England and in 2020 he ended up in the Heracles Armelo of the Eredivisie. In the Netherlands he did manage to succeed, being one of the key pieces of the Dutch team, although he did not manage to avoid relegation to the second division with Heracles.

The characteristics of the US international are typical of an attacking midfielder, his favorite position, although he can also shine on the wings. De la Torre stands out for his fast drive, his good control with both feet and his clear vision of the game. At 24 years old, Luís Campos wants the talent of this English-trained footballer to emerge now in LaLiga.

Olocip’s Artificial Intelligence corroborates the qualities of Luca de la Torre. The midfielder is the best of his team in aspects such as fouls received in ground duels, driving, forward passes or game construction and the second best in game change, assists, successful offensive duels and successful passes . Olocip gives it a market value close to one million euros.
