Anxious to strengthen in defense, the Girondins will be loaned the young Ecuadorian international Jackson Porozo by Boavista during the January transfer window
This time it should be the right one. Unless there is a last-minute turnaround, Jackson Porozo, the Ecuadorian defender of Boavista (Portuguese D1), will be loaned with an option to buy to the Girondins during the January transfer window. Negotiations are very well advanced with the Porto club, of which Gérard Lopez is the majority shareholder and Admar Lopes the former general manager.
The case should have been concluded last summer. Porozo (21 years old, 1.92 m, 2 selections) had even passed his medical examination in Haillan. After the non-departure of Hwang Ui-Jo despite an offer of 12 million from Sporting Portugal and the failure of the transfer of Mostafa Mohamed (Galatasaray) at 11:45 p.m. on August 31, Bordeaux had simply had time to finalize the arrival by Javairo Dilrosun before the transfer window closes.
Recruited by Lopes in Boavista
Admar Lopes and his scouts had brought Porozo to Boavista in 2020 despite a meager high level experience (18 matches in the Ecuadorian league and a place among the U20 Santos in Brazil). He played 11 games in the second leg last season and has started thirteen times since the start of the current year, in all competitions. Right-handed, he is considered a great hope in the country.
The Girondins, who already wanted an additional central defender last summer, have targeted this sector all the more because they present the most porous rearguard in the championship (43 goals conceded in 19 games).
