Promoting players to favorable clubs is a challenging task and can often involve many hours spent talking to club representatives around the world. As a result, trying to find a suitable fit for both player and club, while also agreeing an agreeable commercial outcome for all stakeholders, can often result in a misalignment of requirements.
An intermediary’s network is one of its most important assets. It allows them to know exactly what clubs need and who the best players are that could possibly fit those needs. But as forging connections is challenging in such a competitive market, Wyscout can help intermediaries promote their players, ahead of and during the transfer window.
