Hughes Interested In Espanyol Players

Hughes Interested In Espanyol Players

Espanyol have confirmed that Mark Hughes has personally been checking on some of their top talent by visiting their ground personally.

Espanyol had a brilliant start to the La Liga season and looked on course for a top-six finish before a shocking run of form saw them drop to mid table

However their better quality players have still attracted interest and Sparky has been understood to have travelled to Catalunya earlier this month to watch their clash with Atletico Madrid.

Winger Albert Riera, strongly linked with a move to England, defender Marc Torrejon and striker Ferran Corominas are believed to have been high on Hughes' wanted list.

'I know that Mark Hughes has been watching but we've yet to receive any offers,' said Espanyol's sporting director Paco Herrera in the Spanish press.

'The club is working towards a new project and it's possible that players will leave for a good price.

'Every player has their price and if we receive any interesting offers then we'll have a look before making a decision.'

Does anyone know much about these guys? Wide spread interest from other leagues across the world would suggest they are worth a punt.

Is a bit of speculation for you there guys but they are good players. Just something to perk up your afternoon.

Love the footy manager comments!! Spain is a good place to go for players as it is not a highly inflated market. Most clubs in Spain are selling clubs so it's good pickings for us. I am sure we can have good faith in Hughesy picking the good 'uns

I am interested in the comments linking us with a return for Duffer, though...

Mikey, that article sails very close to the wind of Skysports'! I'm intrigued by these links though, particularly the defender and Riera. Still also trying to work out whether a Duffer return would be any good - I'm inclined to say no!

Marc Torrejón Moya's a good player; 22 years old, a Spanish Under21 international, according to the Mail last week (where they were linking him to Spurs) he's rated at around £5 Million. He seems the most likely, Riera might just be a link of convenience, seeing as he's been linked with a number of other English clubs. As for Ferran Corominas, Hughes surely won't sign another striker, especially one that's only scored 9 times in 102 appearances for Espanyol?

Roversman - I can assure you no part of this was copied. I've just realised the likeness by looking at the article but my mind is guilt free.

Cool sound as matey. Blacheburne I agree, why buy a striker that has such a poor record, although I saw that on Wiki so may not be the most accurate!

You're right there. Though I was looking on the Espanyol site earlier (i've had a busy, busy day clearly) and he's got something like 2 goals in 30 apps this year, and 4 in 30 last year, hardly prolific. At 25 he should really be looking to be getting into his peak now. I don't know, maybe his build-up play is just outstanding?
