Real Sociedad Will Battle Athletic Club For Rayo Vallecano Starlet Sergio Moreno

Sergio Moreno made his La Liga debut earlier this year against Atletico Madrid (Rayo)

Athletic’s interest in Sergio Moreno is well-known by now. The Lions have been trying to sign the Rayo Vallecano starlet for nearly a year and are hoping to make another push during the current transfer window. With Rayo wanting to bring back Unai López the two sides could find a way to reach an agreement, but there are other suitors lurking around as well.

According to a report from José Félix Díaz of Marca, Real Sociedad have also set their sights on Moreno. The striker, who just turned 20 on New Years Day, is seen as someone who could develop into a solid goalscorer in the Primera and it comes as no surprise that he has attracted so much interest. It seems like only a matter of time before he leaves Rayo Vallecano, but the real question is where will he go next?

Athletic are said to be willing to include Unai López in a deal to sign Moreno in January where he would play with Bilbao Athletic for the rest of the season before training with the first team in the summer. There is one major hurdle, however, as Real Madrid retain the option to match any offer for the starlet. Talks with Rayo have intensified over the past few days and Real Sociedad’s interest could be enough to urge the Zurigorri to reach agreement as quickly as possible.
