Who is Lucas Beltrán, the young Argentine forward signed by Fiorentina?

The European transfer market continues to surprise, with one of the most recent and most exciting signings being that of Lucas Beltrán to Fiorentina. A forward who, much like Julián Álvarez, has stood out at River Plate in Argentina. Beltrán has now been acquired by Fiorentina in Italy, in exchange for a staggering 25 million euros.

In this manner, as is often the case, the information was provided by popular Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who stated that the 22-year-old attacker has signed with Fiorentina until mid-2028. Thus, the Italian team has added a future star of international football to their ranks, someone who also shares many similarities with his friend Álvarez, with whom he played alongside at River between 2018 and 2022.

Who is Lucas Beltrán and what is the playing style of Fiorentina’s new signing?

As mentioned before, Lucas Beltrán is a center forward who not only stands out for his goal-scoring prowess but also for his adeptness in the attacking front. Similar to Julián, Beltrán isn’t just a box-bound striker; on the contrary, he possesses a remarkable ability to link up with midfielders, a trait that can greatly contribute to the team’s build-up play.

Why did Fiorentina decide to sign Beltrán?

Fiorentina has recently parted ways with their top scorer, Arthur Cabral, who moved to Benfica for 25 million euros, taking his 19 goals with him. Consequently, in an effort to replace their star for the upcoming season, the Serie A side opted for the young Argentine, who has also been closely monitored by Mancini’s Italian National Team on multiple occasions.

How did Lucas Beltrán fare during his time at River Plate?

The Argentine forward not only recently clinched the local championship title with River Plate but also emerged as a standout player under the guidance of Martín Demichelis. He showcased his goal-scoring prowess within the competition, netting a total of 13 goals and even scoring the crucial opening goal during the championship-clinching match against Estudiantes de la Plata at the Estadio Monumental just a few weeks ago.
