Del Rio attracting interest from abroad

One of Lincoln Red Imps’ hottest prospects Julian Del Rio could be leaving the club this summer with the 18-year old attracting interest from Spanish teams.

Julian broke onto the senior scene back in April 2019, scoring in Lincoln’s 2-0 win over Gibraltar United. Three more appearances that same season gave Del Rio a little taste of what is to come for the youngster.

The 2019/20 season was one which Julian took full advantage of with 20 goals in 24 appearances in all competitions. Most notably, Julian scored a hat-trick in Gibraltar U19’s 3-2 over Hong Kong in September 2019.

The interest from Spain follows his trial with UD Las Palmas, any move is expected to be compared to that of Tjay and Jaylan in terms of joining the youth ranks and building his way to the senior side.
