Soccer. Icardi, Modric, Karius… The flashy names of recruits mentioned in Como, promoted to Serie A

The Como transfer window will be worth its weight in gold, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport . The transalpine newspaper reveals, this Wednesday, May 15, that the Lombard club is preparing an XXL recruitment to exist, next season, in the Italian elite.

By finishing runner-up to Parma in Serie B, Como intends to be ambitious in the next transfer market. And intends to ride on the fame of Thierry Henry, shareholder of the club and that of the coach Ces Fabregas, former player of Barça, Arsenal and Monaco but above all world champion and double European champion with Spain for convincing experienced and internationally renowned players to join Como as he had done to end his brilliant football career.

Experienced reinforcements, high-sounding names

The first rumors circulating around possible recruits to his team are crazy. There Gazzetta dello Sport mentions in particular the name of Pedro. Fabregas has even already come into contact with his former teammate at Barça and in the selection, reveals the Italian newspaper.

And that wouldn’t be the only prestigious name mentioned. Our Italian colleagues also mention Mauro Icardi. The 31-year-old Argentine striker has obviously already played in Serie A, at Sampdoria Genoa (2012-2013) and Inter Milan (2013 to 2020) before joining PSG. But this deal does not appear to be easy to achieve given that the former Parisian had the best season of his career this year at Galatasaray, scoring a whopping 30 goals in all competitions.

Another flashy name is announced: that of Luka Modric. At the end of his contract at Real Madrid, the former 2018 Ballon d’Or is suggested to bring his immense experience to the Como midfield. The 38-year-old Croatian international (174 caps) would be a choice recruit, having played 43 matches this season with the Madrid club. Unless he favors a possible contract extension in Madrid.

Other high-sounding names mentioned by the Italian media: Loris Karius, 30 years old, ex-Liverpool player at the end of his lease with Newcastle or even Joaquin Correa, loaned to OM by Inter Milan, this season and whose playing time is starving.
