Colo Colo continues with his search for a new center forward after the fall in negotiations with the Bolivian Marcelo Moreno Martins, who had everything ready to join Gustavo Quinteros’ team and at the last minute chose to stay at Cruzeiro in Brazil.
One of the names that appeared as an alternative is that of former Palestinian Lucas Passerini, an attacker who currently plays for Cruz Azul in Mexico. without enjoying the best of those present after leaving good feelings in 2019 defending the Arabs.
The attacker is interested in coming to the Monumental and so he made it clear in conversation with the RedGol site, where he affirmed that among the greats of Chilean football, the option of coming to the Cacique is the one that seduces him the most.
“No one has communicated with me. In a moment if the opportunity is given and I have always said that the one that most seduces me of the greats is Colo Colo “, Passerini stated.
In that sense, the 27-year-old Argentine argued that “I have friends and colleagues who have told me about the club and being a great Chilean soccer team, it seduces a lot.”
“If they had told me a few months ago, it would have been different because when I showed up at Cruz Azul I didn’t know if I was going to continue or not and the coach asked me to stay”, concluded.
Lucas Passerini had a good step through Palestinian in the 2019 season, scoring 16 goals in 30 games. Unfortunately he could not replicate those good numbers in Mexican soccer, with five goals in a year and a half between Cruz Azul and a loan from Necaxa.
