Under restructuring – especially after the arrival of coach Gustavo Florentín -, the Rubro-negro hit the hiring of midfielder Nicolás Aguirre and should bring up three other names over the next few days.
The club’s expectation is that Nicolás Aguirre arrives in Recife by next week. The Argentine acts as a second defensive midfielder and has been without a club since leaving Atletico Tucuman, in July this year.
In addition to the midfielder, the Rubro-negro is still working for the arrival of attackers and alternatives on the flanks – considering that the team only has the home silver Juba and Ewerthon as original options to replace the holders Sander and Hayner.
Since the change of directors, Sport had the return of the base side’s youngsters – who were loaned to Serie B clubs – and made four signings. Case of midfielders Hernanes and Everton Felipe, defender Pedro Henrique and goalkeeper Saulo. Only the last one has not debuted.
The management assumes a cautious posture in the transfer market, mainly due to the reduction of options and the financial restrictions of Rubro-negro. Over the past few days, the club even probed names like midfielder Claudio Sepúlveda, from Huachipato-CHI, but was unable to close. He also sought out striker Junior Fernandes, who moved to Universidad de Chile, and striker Elias, from Grêmio.
