Aketxe is an old claim of Hercules, especially from Carmelo del Pozo, who already tried his signing last year.
The new Hercules forward signed his best season in 2014-15, when he scored 20 goals in the Cultural. In his 284 games as a professional, he has scored 87 goals. Together with Raúl González and the third striker still to be finalized, he must give Hercules the punch he missed last year.
