Iglesias is a long-time striker in the Spanish Primera Liga. Iglesias, who played for Valencia and Villarreal, started making his name known after joining Espanyol. He scored 17 goals in the 2018/19 La Liga.
Iglesias left Espanyol in the summer of 2019 to join Real Betis. He was sluggish with three goals in 35 league games during the 2019/20 season, but he began to improve his skills. Iglesias scored 11 goals in 28 games in the 2020/21 season and 10 goals in 33 games in the 2021/22 season. Last season, he tied for fourth in league scoring with Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) with 15 goals in 35 games.
Iglesias has been struggling this season with 11 games and one assist. Although his performance has declined compared to before, he has emerged as a target for Leverkusen. Leverkusen recently lost Victor Boniface, its main striker who scored 10 goals in the Bundesliga, to an injury. He joined Nigeria’s national team and was preparing for the African Cup of Nations when he suffered a tendon injury in his right adductor muscle.
Boniface will not be available until April. Leverkusen has chosen Iglesias as a substitute for Boniface. According to Romano, Leverkusen will pay Betis around 1 million euros in rent.
Leverkusen is leading the league with 15 wins and three draws (48 points) in 18 matches. Leverkusen is the only team that is unbeaten in the five major European leagues. In order for Leverkusen to continue its current upward trend, Iglesias desperately needs to play well.
