Almeria moved quickly to secure the signing of Kaiky Fernandes under the feet of Europe’s top clubs.
The club made their move from Santos official on Wednesday, with Transfermarkt setting his fee at €7m. He signs a six-year contract with Almeria.
Big, fast and excellent on the ball, Kaiky stood out at Santos and his talent was no secret. As Goal noted, an entire elite of the top flight had been interested in him, including Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.
There is no doubt that this is a coup for Almeria and continue their summer of signing some of the best emerging talent after Martin Svidersky, Gui Guedes, Marko Milanovic and Arnau Sola. Certainly, in terms of raw talent, Almeria are building a team capable of staying in La Liga.
On the same day, Almeria also announced the mutual termination of Jonathan Silva and Daniel Carrico’s deals.
