Brentford have officially announced the signing of goalkeeper Mark Frecken from Freiburg for €13 million on a four-year contract.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper has done so well that he led the club to Europa League success by keeping 13 clean sheets and conceding 44 goals in 34 Bundesliga appearances last season. come

However, the arrival of Frecken seems to have a connotation that many people are paying attention to, that is, before Brentford had David Raya, a Spanish goalkeeper who was in hot form with statistics. Most saves in goalkeeper season

The 29-year-old Netherlands international showed his accurate distribution by playing the second-most passes over 40 yards, completing 271 of those. He also made the sixth-most defensive actions outside the box, with 43, highlighting his ability to sweep up behind his defence. ทางเข้า ufabet

This means that this deal could be an indirect indication that they are quite ready to let Raya leave the team this summer, with Frecken as his successor.

“I’m very excited,” said Flekken. “If you had told me seven years ago when I was in the third division of Germany that one day I would be playing in the Premier League, I would have probably knocked you down! 

“But it’s a dream come true and my next big step. And I hope we can take the next steps as a squad and as a club as well.

“I’m a ball-playing goalkeeper. I try to bring calmness into the squad and I’ll always try to direct the guys in front of me – I’ll help them to help me.”

Raya is currently receiving interest from many clubs. But the heavy news is that both Chelsea and Manchester United seem to be looking for alternatives in the goalkeeper position.
