Finnbogason to leave La Real?

Real Sociedad have reportedly informed Alfred Finnbogason that he is free to leave the club this summer.

Big things were expected of the Icelandic striker at Anoeta following his €8m arrival from Heerenveen last year, having been the Eredivisie’s top goalscorer in 2013-14.

However, he struggled to displace Carlos Vela and Imanol Agirretxe as the club’s first-choice attackers, scoring just two goals in 804 minutes of La Liga football.

Now, according to AS, David Moyes has decided that the 26-year-old does not fit his style of play and will allow him to leave San Sebastian in order to secure first-team football.

La Real do not consider addressing Finnbogason’s future a priority, but it is understood that teams from France and Netherlands have already made enquiries for the forward.

Although it remains to be seen whether La Real will recoup the €8m they paid to Heerenveen in 2014, they would likely entertain any bids above €4m.
