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.
