Colo Colo 2023: reinforcements, signings and who could arrive
According to the information published by DaleAlbo, Colo Colo would have advanced conversations with the left side of Unión La Calera, Eric Wiemberg. Even, he should only pass the medical exams to be presented as a new reinforcement of the Cacique for the 2023 season.
Those who do already have a place in the Monumental are Fernando de Paul and Ramiro González, as up to now they are the only signings made official by the albos. De Paul was the first to join the squad and he even did so at the end of the 2022 season. The former Everton and Universidad de Chile goalkeeper was included in the calls for the friendlies against Manuel Pellegrini’s Betis, in Concepción and Viña del Mar .
González was finally able to finalize his arrival in Colo Colo this Tuesday. During the previous transfer market, he did not pass the previous medical check-up and the contract was dropped. “I am where I want to be. The only thing I want is to focus on the present and the future”, said the defender, who emerges as an alternative to the central duo formed by Maximiliano Falcon and Emiliano Amor.
The transfer policy in Colo Colo contemplated one incorporation per line. The goal is already covered and it seemed the same with the defense, but without Suazo or Opazo now the picture would be different. However, and in accordance with the previous line of contracts, transfer options have emerged to replace Gabriel Costa Carlos Auzqui, Sergi Santos, Matías Moya and Derlis González.
In addition, for the center forward position, accompanying the scorer Juan Martín Lucero, the names of Leandro Benegas and, at the time, Ignacio Jeraldino also emerged. Finally, if Suazo’s goodbye comes to fruition (Fluminense would be interested in having the albo captain), Alex Ibacache, Everton’s winger, appears with chances to replace him.

Matías Zaldivia and Carlo Villanueva have already left the Monumental, after finishing their contract and not receiving renewal proposals. Later, Costa joined them when he returned to Peru to sign with Alianza Lima.
The same would also happen with Suazo and Opazo. The latter must respond to Colo Colo’s proposal on Thursday (he had everything arranged for a new contract), but the most consistent version is that he accepted Racing de Avellaneda’s offer and will play in Argentina. In fact, Quinteros took the transfer of the right back for granted.
