On Boca Juniors They know that they need a number 9 urgently, despite having brought Nicolás Orsini, and they are already looking for a reinforcement for the next transfer market, which will open in January next year.
After the frustrated attempts by Roger Martínez, Edinson Cavani, Franco Di Santo, Miguel Borja and Marcelo Moreno Martins, to name a few, now the “Xeneize” points to the Paraguayan Gabriel Avalos, currently in Argentinos Juniors. We go over five things you didn’t know about him.
Forged in the lower ones of Libertad from his country Paraguay, the attacker arrived in Argentina after a visit to Tamberay, also from the Guaraní championship, and began to show his scoring ability in the Ascenso with the Defensores de Cambaceres shirt. Little continuity in Tigre and Gimnasia deposited him in Paraguay again, to regain confidence and goals in Independiente de Campo Grande and in General Díaz. Then he returned to our country again.
In 2015, Crucero del Norte made a complaint, arguing that he had collected 150 thousand dollars and had disappeared to sign a contract with Peñarol of Uruguay. He was accused of fraud and an arrest warrant for him reached Interpol, although his departure ended up being on good terms. It could have been the end of his career there.
His name just began to take on significance in the highest category of Argentine football at the beginning of 2019, when he dispatched with a triplet against River at the Monumental playing for Board of Trustees.
In mid-2020 he arrived at Argentinos Juniors, but suffered a tear of the external meniscus in his left knee and spent almost two months off the courts. He later earned his place in the structure of Gabriel Milito, who replaced Dabove, scoring nine goals in 28 games played to date. In between, he was called up to the Paraguayan team to compete in the Copa América in Brazil and scored a goal against Peru.
From El Bicho, who does not have a clause in the contract to buy the pass, they already made him an offer to renew the contract, although Avalos still did not respond: he already knows that Boca wants it and that he seeks to take advantage of that detail. What will happen?
