Legia Warsaw is looking for a new goalkeeper. According to our information, the shares of Rafał Strączka from Stali Mielec are highly ranked, and he may leave for free after the season.
Today, Artur Boruc is the undisputed number one in the goal of the Polish champions. The 41-year-old is a strong personality in the dressing room and very solid on the pitch. When he was missing from Łazienkowska Street due to a back injury, the team fell apart like a house of cards. His absence is not the only reason, but it is enough to mention that when Boruc was absent, Legia lost all league matches. When he returned, she immediately broke with Jagiellonia, although it is generally difficult to say that the club would overcome the crisis.
In the absence of the veteran, Kacper Tobiasz and Cezary Miszta took turns to defend themselves. The nineteen and twenty-year-olds played unevenly. They showed that they can collect minutes for the team, but position # 1 is still beyond them. They see it in Legia. Anyway, Dariusz Mioduski himself admitted it in the famous interview on the official website of the club. So it’s easy to guess that one of them may soon be on loan. First, however, you need to contract a new goalkeeper. Therefore, the sports department has begun the search for a successor for Boruc, who will end his rich career after the season.
You didn’t have to look far, because Legia has a promising and potentially easy-to-download candidate under his nose. As we found out, Rafał Strączek from Stal Mielec, who has been attracting attention for some time, and is now a candidate for one of the best goalkeepers of the season. The 22-year-old is a promising talent and, as we hear in Mielec, they also get inquiries about him from abroad and from another leading Ekstraklasa club.
Legia, however, is a tempting option and perhaps not accidental for one more reason. In the summer transfer window, Strączek was very close to moving to Raków Częstochowa. Marek Papszun and the then sports director, Paweł Tomczyk, who has been working in the capital since December, wanted it. In the end, Raków bet on Vladan Kovacevic and it did not turn out badly either.
This season, Podkarpacie has played fourteen matches in the league. He kept a clean sheet four times. In this respect, he is in fourth place in the league. He has shown great interventions many times this season, which has attracted the attention of many scouts.
The 22-year-old is quite easy prey. His contract ends in June 2022. He can work with a new employer in winter. The question is, is he ready to jump to a higher ledge? He had already sent out some serious signals that it would not break easily.
