Closer to the transfer hundred –

Lech Pozna, during the time the Rutkowski family was in office, has already made 84 transfers during the summer transfer window. In a few years he will reach the hundred players brought in for a given season. The years go by as the amounts spent on summer purchases grow very slowly. It has only been 12 months since the mythical million euros was crossed.

Lech Pozna is late, making the summer transfers almost at the last minute. Of the last 15 transfers made during the summer transfer window, in May and June, management has only recruited 4 players. July has also been bad in terms of transfer movements lately. From the summer of 2018, in July, only Joao Amaral, Pedro Tiba, Mikael Ishak and Barry Douglas encountered the Bulgarian team, so at least quite specific players.

For the 2019/2020 and 2021/2022 seasons, in which Lech Poznań did not compete in the European Cups, the summer transfers were made on completely different dates. In 2019, the club closed the summer transfer window in June and a year ago, in the second half of August, it signed no fewer than 3 players. Waiting for transfers until August has its advantages, because then the prices for players are much lower than, for example, in June, there are more so-called “bargains” on the market, there are players who have not managed to change clubs before and going to better leagues than Ekstraklasa.

Twelve months ago, in the second half of August, Lech brought in Pozna Adriel Ba Loua, Pedro Rebocho and, moreover, Roko Baturina, but so far only the Portuguese proved to be a major reinforcement. In this transfer window, the club can no longer wait with serious moves until August, because then it would be too late, the team would start every 3 games after about ten games in the 2022/2023 season from July 5 -4 days and for training . There would be no time to introduce new players.

Since 2006, i.e. from the moment he joined the Bulgarian Rutkowski family, the club made the most summer transfers in the summer of 2018 (9 players). But five years ago, between June 3 and 28, he signed 6 players, including 3 players between June 17 and 19. From that thrilling summer transfer window, perfect for the so-called Only Christian Gytkjaer and Emir Dilaver fired “transfer fans”, who are often absent from Kolejorz’s games in the background during the season.

So far 1 player has arrived


Since the summer of 2006, Lech Pozna has bought a total of 15 players for at least 350,000 euros. The most expensive was of course Adriel Ba Loua, brought in for 1.2 million euros. Of the 15 most expensive summer transfers so far, only Joao Amaral, Artjoms Rudnevs, Lubomir Satka, Darko Jevtić, Alekasander Tonev, Robert Lewandowski and Pedro Tiba, or 7 players, have been fired. After all, Maciej Gajos could have expected more and it is still a while to wait for the assessment of Adriel Ba Lou. Of the 15 most expensive summer signings since 2006, no fewer than 5 are wingers. Joao Amaral joined us 4 years ago as a midfielder. It should be noted that in the ranking of the most expensive summer transfers there are no players coming from the so-called “Free transfer”, but took a large premium for signing the contract. Such players were, for example, Barry Douglas and Christian Gytkjaer.

Highest spending on summer transfers in recent years:

Adriel Ba Loua (Viktoria Pilzno) – EUR 1.2 million
Jan Sykora (Slavia Praga) – 700,000 euros
Joao Amaral (Benfica Lisbon) – 700,000 euros
Niklas Barkroth (IFK Norrköping) – 650,000 euros
Artjoms Rudnevs (ZTE Zalaegerszegi) – 600,000 euros
Lubomir Satka (DAC Dunajska Streda) – 600,000 euros
Maciej Gajos (Jagiellonia Bialystok) – 500,000 euros
Djordje Crnomarković (Radnicki Nis) – 500,000 euros
