Most of the league’s teams are filling their squads with good domestic players right now. The 2021-22 season of the Indian Super League (ISL) seems to be far away at the moment. However, the teams are trying to decorate their squads with the best players so that they can become champions of the league. It has been only a month since the last season of the league ended, but now the activities have started for the transfer of players. It is clear from this that all clubs want to make their teams fully strong before the pre-season and we have noted confirmed player transfers for ISL – 2021-22.
At present, most of the teams are preparing to include more good domestic players in the squad than to include foreign players in their squad. This is also because the 3 + 1 rule will come into force from next season and hence the team is looking for the best Indian talent. However, many interesting deals have already been completed in the league.
Liston Colasso in ATK Mohan Bagan
ATK Mohan Bagan has done the biggest transfer of perhaps the biggest domestic player so far, by transferring Liston Colasso to Hyderabad FC due to record transfer fees. The Goa winger’s previous ISL season was much better for the Nizam and he scored two goals and three assists. Fans and sports enthusiasts have all come to consider him one of the best young Indian stars.
Putting a stake on them, the mariners have warned about their preparations for the future. To maintain their dominance in the ISL, they are building a strong team and due to this they can also become a team in the AFC Cup. In such a situation, a winger like Colaco will increase his attacking power even more in the next season.
Sanjeev Stalin in Kerala Blasters
After being ranked number 10 in the league and another disappointing season, the Kerala Blasters are once again preparing for a change to the squad. For this, they have also started work and they are preparing to recruit such players, which can improve their position.
In the process, the Yellow Army, taking the first step, signed young left-back Sanjeev Stalin and strengthened his defense. The former Indian Arrows player will join Portugal’s Club. Sanjeev has played for the Indian team in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup and the fans are still remembered by him for his great defense and superb set-up ability in this tournament.
With Stalin coming, Jessel Carneiro will get competition on the left-back. With this, he can also play at center-back. This 20-year-old player is very good if seen on a long-term basis and it will make the team’s defense stronger in the coming time.
Hormipam Ruwayyah in Kerala Blasters
Even after signing Stalin, Kerala has tried to make their defense even stronger. In doing so, they have signed the youth center-back Hormipam from Punjab. The player, who came out of the Sports Authority of India (SAI), has represented the under-18 national team. Hormipam has achieved a lot of success at the youth level.
In the last I-League season, Hormipam appeared on the field for Punjab 14 times. Recognized as a sensible center-back, this player has the ability to overcome any danger and fully understand the game. The 20-year-old has a bright future. The Blasters hope to improve Hormipam’s game over time and become a permanent part of the team and strengthen the defensive line of the team.
