Girona striker’s top xG numbers should make him a big transfer target this summer

Girona’s unbelievable season is guttering and fading in these final stages, and the gloss is gone from what could been something truly historic rather than just impressive.

They lost to Getafe last night, and it already feels like their focus with ten games to go is making sure they stay in the top 4, rather than looking above them at Real Madrid, who have cruised ten points clear.

One thing that’s certain to happen this summer is a major raid on their top talents. We’ve heard a lot about Savio and Viktor Tsygankov, and Aleix Garcia has had interest too. But what of Artem Dovbyk?

Perhaps it’s because he’s a big striker rather than something more elegant, but given the insatiable demand for goalscorers across European football, his name hasn’t been mentioned much. The stats are impressive, that’s for sure. He’s got 0.62 non penalty expected goals and assists per 90 minutes this season, putting him up there with Vinicius, Jude Bellingham and Raphinha as one of the league’s most productive player.
