Racing defines Jonatan Gómez

Racing continues with the antennas activated in the transfer market. After adding four reinforcements, he is in negotiations to add the fifth. In this case, he continues with his sights set on Jonatan Gómez, an attacking midfielder for Argentinos with whom he has practically agreed on a one-year contract and could join a one-year loan. However, the Academy, at least for now, does not have the player insured because Rosario Central got in the way.

“Between Racing and the player, only details remain,” someone from the 32-year-old midfielder’s inner circle confided in Olé. In the last few hours, the Scoundrel made an offer to the La Paternal team, although the numbers that the Acadé offered to Gómez would be higher than those proposed in Rosario. El Bicho, owner of the pass, will evaluate the best proposals, but the final decision of where to play will be the footballer’s. And at least today, without ruling out a twist, Jonatan would prefer to put on the Racing shirt.

“If the Racing thing materializes, it will be a transfer with a purchase option close to 500,000 dollars for half the chip,” A very reliable source told this newspaper that he glimpsed behind the wheel in Racing. With a valid contract until December 2024 in Argentinos, Gómez was informed that Gabriel Milito will not have him among his priorities and that is why his club is willing to lend him.

Gabriel Milito will not have him among his priorities in Argentinos and that is why he will leave.

At El Bicho, Gómez played 38 games in 2021, 18 of them from the start. He played mostly as an inside right midfielder, but has played as a winger in the past. According to what Olé found out, although Gago has not contacted him yet, Jonatan is very seduced by the chance to play in Racing and to meet again Gabriel Hauche, whose teammate he was in Argentinos.

THE TITLES HE WON

Gómez was champion of the Argentine Cup with Arsenal de Sarandí, in 2013, and won three titles at Independiente Santa Fe, with Gustavo Costas (Racing icon) as coach: he won two local trophies and the Suruga Bank Cup in Japan, in 2016. When it seemed that the Academy would not look for an attacking midfielder because they had that position covered, the club targeted Jonatan Gómez, but now Rosario Central has emerged as a competitor…

THE OFFER YOU REJECTED

Gómez also received a proposal from Brazil, however he rejected it because his daughter was born a few days ago and he wants to stay in Argentina. What will be the fate of the fast-paced midfielder? If his landing at Racing crystallizes, Edwin Cardona, Hauche, Facundo Mura and Emiliano Insúa will be added, the reinforcements for Gago so far in the transfer market.
