Rioja shows interest in Espanyol, Espanyol shows interest in Rioja
The summer transfer market is rushing its last hours and the interest of many teams in acquiring the services of different players is already beginning to come to light. One of them has been the Espanyol for hiring albiazul Luis Rioja. In this case it seems that it is a mutual interest. The player likes the idea of returning to the First Division and the Catalan team would take over the services of a footballer who fits in in the profile he was looking for his technical secretariat.
At the moment, the still Deportivo Alavés player, has already publicly shown its interest in the group that intends to acquire its services. The Andalusian has begun to follow Espanyol on social networks. A detail.
Alavés does not want to lose one of its main sports assets, since it would have almost no room for maneuver to cover its gap with guarantees
Now we will have to wait for what happens in these last hours of the transfer market. In this three-way negotiation, Alavés, Espanyol and the footballer, the latter two seem to already have an agreement and now the only thing missing is that it also occurs between clubs.
The ‘perica’ offer falls short
However, the operation is not simple. Alavés does not want to lose one of its main sports assets, since it would have almost no room for maneuver to cover its gap with guarantees. Also, his termination clause amounts to 15 million after renewing last year until 2025 and the Catalan team is offering less than four, so it falls short. We will have to wait to see what happens in these last hours of the market, but at the moment in Alavés there are not many movements and Luis García has already made it clear that the team needs reinforcements, especially in the axis of defense, the spinal cord and in tip.
