Bayer Leverkusen are making a splash in the January transfer window with the signing of Borja Iglesias from Real Betis. The 31-year-old Spaniard arrives in Germany on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy for €8 million.
Iglesias is a proven goalscorer with a knack for finding the net in the big moments. He has scored 10 goals in 19 La Liga appearances for Betis this season, including a hat-trick against Valencia in November. He also has 12 goals in 33 appearances for Spain’s national team.
Iglesias’ arrival is a major coup for Leverkusen, who are currently top of the Bundesliga. The German club have been searching for a new striker to replace Patrik Schick, who has been injured for much of the season.
Iglesias is expected to make his Leverkusen debut against Union Berlin on Wednesday. He will be hoping to hit the ground running and help the club keep their title hopes alive.
😄 Borja Iglesias, sonriente mientras se decide su futuro.
🔜 Entrena junto al grupo a la espera de que termine de cerrarse su marcha al Bayer Leverkusen.
