Athletic Club Will Reportedly Sign Starlets Álex Pérez And Daniel Etxebarri
New Athletic Sporting Director Rafa Alkorta is ready to put his Lezama plan into action this summer as he aims to make the club’s academy one of the very best in all of football. Naturally, the Lions are always looking to add promising young footballers to Lezama and every year a handful of players join the academy. This summer will be no different as two more signings are about to become official.
According to a report from La Cantera De Lezama, Athletic will sign two new starlets barring any unforeseen issues. Álex Pérez will join Lezama from Arenas Club where he has already made his debut in the Segunda B. The 16-year-old left-back is viewed as one of the most exciting young players in his age group and has even trained with the Athletic Juvenil B team on occasion this season.
Daniel Etxebarri (2001) will also join Lezama this summer. The left-footed center-back comes from Danok Bat where he stands out for his strength, ability with the ball at his feet, and powerful shot. Etxebarri has taken big steps in his development this season and will continue to improve as a footballer at Lezama next year.
These two aren’t the only ones who will be arriving at Lezama this summer. Zarautz KE goalkeeper Álex Padilla has already signed with the academy and Leioa goalkeeper Gorka Campo will join CD Basconia. As the weeks come and go several other signings will be made as well. Lezama is constantly improving and always looking to add the very best young players from Bizkaia and the Basque Country.
