Club Puebla has had a very interesting offseason, to say the least as it was announced that it would need to change its name very soon and is now under new ownership as well. This Monday Los Camoteros announced their official transfer list that included five players, here is a rundown of this list.
The 27-year-old striker played nine Liga MX games with La Franja in this Apertura 2017 but only three were as a starter. Amione also played in one Copa MX, the Mexican striker did not have any goals in the Liga MX but did contribute with one assist. The Mexico City native can be a decent role player off the bench and his teammates in the past have said that he can be a fun person to be around. Certain teams in the Liga MX could definitely use him especially with the 9/9 rule in place and he could add chemistry to any locker room as well.
The Colombian is the most notable player on this transfer list as he can be skillful and has an immense amount of pace as well. Micolta’s best trait is that he is very versatile as he can play as a fullback, midfielder and even as a striker. The 28-year-old played in 12 games for La Franja in the Liga MX, seven as a starter and contributed with two goals. There are certainly other Liga MX teams that can use Micolta as well as teams in his native Colombia or across South America.
It seems like Enrique Meza will pursue a right back in this transfer window as both Felix Micolta and Oscar Rojas are transfer listed. “El Kevin” played seven games in this Apertura 2017 but at 36 years old it is hard to imagine that another Liga MX team could use his services. Perhaps, Mexico’s second-tier league the Ascenso MX is a more likely destination for the defender that made his professional debut in 2001.
Puebla has a really solid striker in Lucas Cavallini but with both Jeronimo Amione and Carlos Salom listed, it seems that “El Ojitos” will pursue another striker in this transfer window. The Palestinian international only played two games as a starter this season and it seems like a move out of Mexico is more likely for him. Salom did show flashes of potential but struggled severely to finish scoring opportunities. The Argentine-born striker also made controversial comments after the Mexico City earthquake, which basically kept him off the matchday roster for most of the Apertura.
The 35-year-old midfielder played in five Liga MX games and one Copa MX fixture with Los Camoteros in this Apertura 2017. Toledo is a leader as he has sported the captain’s armband for Puebla before but he is starting to show his age and maybe the Ascenso MX will be a likely destination for him.
