Valencia Sporting Director Miguel Corona has openly declared that Los Che are looking for a left-winger in the January transfer market.
Under Ruben Baraja, Valencia have been a pleasant surprise this season, after battling relegation last time out. Sitting 9th after 13 games, there is still the feeling that Valencia could do with a little more investment however.
Corona admitted as much to Relevo.
“We openly believe that we are short on the left wing, we are looking for a left-winger who is left-footed. It is a position that I say naturally, that we lack. From there, we could do things in all positions, but let’s not forget to remember that the squad is competitive.”
Meanwhile perhaps more of a relief is the fact that Corona says Valencia have no intention of selling this January.
“Our idea is that there are no exits that could weaken us.”
Including Javi Guerra. The midfield revelation has been linked with a number of big clubs since earning himself a starting spot, and his quality is inescapable at this point. Corona was positive they could hang onto him.
“I think so, we can fight. And it’s not just about us. Javi is very identified with us, he is happy here, aware that his career has been short so far, and that the only thing he thinks about, I get the feeling, is enjoying himself every week wearing the Valencia shirt.”
