Brentford Football Club has reached an agreement to secure the services of Brazilian forward Igor Thiago from Club Brugge during the upcoming summer transfer window. The 22-year-old will continue representing the Belgian side for the remainder of the current season.

In anticipation of his arrival, Thiago has committed to a five-year contract, with the provision for an additional 12 months, starting from 1st July. Thomas Frank, the head coach, expressed his satisfaction with the proactive approach taken by the club's management, acknowledging the contributions of Matthew Benham, Phil Giles, and Lee Dykes for their diligence in securing the deal. Frank emphasized Thiago's significance in filling a crucial position within the team, praising his versatility as a forward. He highlighted Thiago's attributes as a diligent worker, adept at pressing, possessing physicality, adeptness in the box, and the ability to connect plays.

Thiago's journey to Brentford stems from his beginnings at Cruzeiro in Brazil before his stint at Ludogorets, a Bulgarian club, where he showcased his prowess by scoring 15 goals and providing eight assists in 32 league matches. Additionally, Thiago left his mark in the UEFA Europa Conference League, contributing two goals to his team's campaign.

His transfer to Club Brugge last summer has been fruitful, with Thiago amassing 18 goal involvements in the Jupiler Pro League, including 16 goals, seven of which were scored from within the six-yard box. Furthermore, his aerial prowess, as evidenced by 35 aerial duels won this season, places him seventh in the league rankings. Thiago's ability to create opportunities is evident through his 23 key passes made during the course of the season. With his promising trajectory, Brentford eagerly anticipates integrating Thiago into their squad, anticipating his contributions in their red and white colors.
