Oribe Peralta is becoming the center of attention from Real Club Deportivo La Coruna during the summer transfer window.  The news was reported in the official website of La Liga BBVA and Nuevofutbol in a h/t to an article written by Eric Gomez for Goal.

Peralta may be a great fit for Real Club Deportivo La Coruna in spite of the presence of nine strikers in the club for the following reasons.


2012 Summer Olympics in London

Peralta managed to surprise Mexico and Brazil with his two goals in the final Olympic match between the two nations.  The result was a gold medal for Mexico and a place in football history for Mexico and the world.

Peralta also broke one of the scoring records of FIFA since 1976. He scored the first goal for Mexico 28 seconds after the beginning of the finals.

He was instrumental in Mexico’s victory over Japan during the same event. Peralta scored a tie-breaking goal which sent Mexico advancing in the match according to ESPN.

Peralta scored the only goal for Mexico in its Olympic match against Switzerland. The result was his first victory for Mexico during the 2012 Summer Olympics.


Santos Laguna

Peralta has a commanding presence with Santos Laguna. According to ESPN Soccernet, the Mexican striker is having a great start in the 2012-2013 Liga Mexicana season.

During the current Liga Mexicana season, Peralta managed to score 15 goals and start 21 matches. He had 44 shots and 30 of them were on goal.

Peralta has 42 fouls committed and 33 fouls served for Santos Laguna during the current season.



According to another article by Eric Gomez for Goal, Peralta is a team player who shares the glory with his teammates. This attitude is sorely needed at a time when certain athletes tend to think only of themselves—intentionally or unintentionally.



It remains to be seen whether Real Club Deportivo La Coruna can sign Peralta during the summer transfer window.  Peralta has expressed a move to the English Premier League according to a report by The Daily Record.

The Peralta story (regardless) is expected to be interesting within the last few days of the Summer Transfer Window.

I would like thank the B/R Readers and wish them the best until next time.
