Larsen is already in Vigo to close his transfer to Celta
Jorgën Strand Larsen, the Norwegian tower with which Celta intends to close their lead, arrived in Vigo on Wednesday to close his signing. The attacker, 22 years old and 1.93 tall, was this afternoon at A Sede de Príncipe to close the operation, a transfer for which Groningen of the Dutch league will receive more than 11 million euros. The footballer arrived accompanied by his agent, Tore Pedersen.
Larsen has been chosen to complete the squad remodeling plan. So this 22-year-old striker will break Groningen’s record sale, held by Marcus Berg for 9.8 million to Hamburg, and will also be one of the most expensive acquisitions in Celta’s history. Groningen, who preferred to retain him for at least one more season, have finally agreed to open the door for him after Larsen had not attended the last training session; according to his agent, Tore Pedersen, emotionally affected by the club’s position.
The last hours of the sky-blue market will focus on the possible departure of Denis Suárez and if such an option would open the door to some last arrival operation, of an offensive midfielder, which does not seem likely. As for Larsen, he obeys the profile of commitment to an emerging talent that is typical of Luis Campos. His adaptation to Chacho Coudet’s scheme will be one of the keys in the Celtic season
