The 2022 summer transfer window has been very competitive for most of the top La Liga clubs. Iago Aspas has extended his contract with Celta Vigo till 2025, and this means that the veteran forward still has the chance to score more goals for the Spanish club.
As it stands, Iago Aspas is the fourth highest scorer in the last seven La Liga seasons. The Celta Vigo forward has scored 121 goals in this time period. The only players who have scored more goals than Aspas in the past seven seasons include Karim Benzema, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. The Argentine forward, Messi, is the only player among these three who didn’t participate in the 2021/22 season.
Despite the fact that Messi no longer plays for Barcelona, he still managed to top the list with 188 goals. If he had played in the 2021/22 La Liga season, he could have reached the 200-goal mark. However, other players on the list couldn’t score up to 100 goals in the past seven La Liga seasons. Antoine Griezmann, Gerard Moreno, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Luis Morales, Mikel Oyarzabal, and Raul Garcia are the players in question.
A few of these players are no longer playing in the Spanish Liga, while others will continue competing in the 2022/23 season. Celta Vigo will be delighted that their star player is contracted to the club for three more seasons. Aspas was the reason why they survived relegation in the previous season as he scored many goals for the Spanish club.
