Wisła Kraków is close to completing the transfer of the new striker. As we managed to determine, the player of the “White Star” is to be a Spanish player currently playing in the United Arab Emirates. This is the 28-year-old Luis Fernandez, who played, among others in the Greek league.
Behind Fernandez, not a very successful period in Khor Fakkan. In the UAE, the player only played two games, so he lost the entire fall round. Before that, however, he had done decently in Greece, where he played for Asteras Tripolis. In the colors of this club, he scored 10 goals and assists in the 2020/2021 season (7 + 3) and 13 in the 2019/2020 season (11 + 2), respectively. He was involved at the goal every 138 minutes. Before coming to Greece, Fernandez played almost 100 games in the back of the Spanish Ekstraklasa, he also played in the local third league. The clubs he has played for are:
- UCAM Murcia (22 games / 9 goals)
- Deportivo La Coruna (30 Games / 6 goals)
- AD Alcorcon (5 matches / goal)
- SD Huesca (29 matches / 5 goals / 3 assists)
- CD Lugo (27 games / 5 goals / assist)
Our findings show that Luis Fernandez has been on the Wisła Kraków radar for at least two years. The topic of his coming to Poland was played a year ago, but then nothing came of it. The player should soon be announced with another Wisła transfer.
Transfers. Luis Fernandez is a football player of Wisła Kraków
What type of footballer is Fernandez? According to WyScout, he played in Greece mainly in two positions: as a forward and an attacking midfielder. His team was seventh and sixth in the league, not famous for offensive play and a large number of goals scored. Luis usually did better than expected goals (10 goals xG 8.63 in the first season, seven goals against 4.47 in the second season). He also made five second-degree assists over the two seasons (four of them in the second season). The Spaniard was a very active player on the offensive, especially when it comes to shots on goal. Season 19/20:
- 3rd in the league by average number of shots per 90 minutes – 3.33
- 2.Maximum number of shots outside the penalty area – 42
In the 2020/2021 season, Fernandez played the ball more often. He recorded more key passes or dribbles, much less often he decided to shoot from a distance. Some statistics:
- 1st in the league in terms of second-degree assists / 90 minutes – 0.29
- 5. in terms of shots on goal – 2.69
- 18. when it comes to contact with the ball in the penalty area – 3.35
So we can say that he is a Carlitos player. Not necessarily a thoroughbred nine, more like a game wizard who likes to operate as an attacking midfielder, but he will score.
