Forward Cristian Herrera, in the orbit of Rayo Vallecano

Rayo Vallecano is looking for a forward and has turned to Cristian Herrera. The franjirrojo club likes the characteristics of this 29-year-old Canarian attacker, who currently militates in Lugo. Cristian was trained in the lower categories of Las Palmas, has experience in the Second Division and already knows what it means to live a promotion, since he got it in the ranks of Girona. It is not the first time that the left-hander, with a contract until 2021, is in the portfolio. His name has already sounded for the rayista group in the past.

Cristian Herrera grew up in the Las Palmas quarry. After going up to Second B with its subsidiary, Las Palmas Athletic —He scored 20 goals—, the striker went to Elche Ilicitano (13-14), where he scored 13 goals in 14 games. That efficiency in front of goal ended up opening the doors of the first team and First, debuting against Valencia on November 24, 2011. It was the dream premiere: scored the winning goal in 83 '.

That helped him renewal and stay in Elche, but the administrative decline of the entity led him to pack his bags and sign for the Almeria (15-16). There, in Second, the striker barely played 213 minutes in nine games, so he left in February for Girona. At the command of Machín and in his second season in the Catalan team achieved promotion to First (16-17).

Later, in 17-18, Cristian Herrera signed for Lugo and continues in their ranks. In fact, in the last three courses, it has been a fundamental piece, regardless of the coach who has occupied the bench. He played 40 league games (7 goals) with Francisco, 34 (10) the season they spent Javi López, Monteagudo and Eloy Jiménez and another 40 (11) the past, with Eloy, Curro Torres and Juanfran.

One of the victims of his eleven goals in 19-20 was, precisely, Rayo Vallecano. His goal in the Anxo Carro gave Lugo three points. Now, the franjirrojo team has thought of Cristian to reinforce a demarcation in which it only has Yacine Qasmi. Today, the Madrid club has made a single signing -Fran García- and he still needs a left back, a winger and that forward to get him closer to the promotion goal.
