With all the homework to do. This is how the sports management of CD Tenerife faces the last week of the winter transfer market. Juan Carlos Cordero must specify in the coming days some of the operations that he has been maturing to shore up the offensive plot of Luis Miguel Ramis’ team.
The head coach of CD Tenerife announced last Friday, in the press room after the victory against Oviedo, that there would be news this week. There is no doubt that it will. Tenerife is very close to hiring attacker Andrés Martín, who belongs to Rayo Vallecano.
In fact, yesterday he was on the bench for the Rayo-Athletic Bilbao match, but he didn’t have a single minute. Last year he was one of the key pieces in Iraola’s schemes in the promotion of the Madrid club to the First Division. However, this season he has lost prominence with the Basque coach and his departure during this transfer window is close. His presence yesterday at the Madrid stadium may have been the last this year.
But it is expected that he will not be the only reinforcement to arrive on the island. The other rumored name is that of Álvaro Jiménez, a Cádiz player. Nor has he had continuity in the Cadiz club, despite the fact that it was an express wish of Álvaro Cervera. Precisely, the departure of the former blue and white coach led Jiménez to harbor some hope of gaining minutes with the arrival of Sergio González. But it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be like that either, so his departure, on loan, seems close. More so now with the arrival of an Oussama Idrissi, on loan from Sevilla, who starts with the clear starting band. In total, this season he has played 465 minutes in 12 games (three of them as a starter).
The main obstacle to close this reinforcement would be the competition. Girona and América could be interested in this player. The winter market ends on January 31.
