Espanyol Look To Sign Midfield Duo

Espanyol are looking to complete the signings of 2 midfielders this Summer, could that mean they'll be willing to sell Jordi Gomez to the Swans?

There has been speculation and on-going debate and as to whether or not we'll sign the 23 year-old, who won the Supporters' Player of the Year award this season.

The latest rumours surrounding a possible move for Jordi all point in Swansea's favour, one says Gomez has been looking at flats recently in Swansea (but we've heard that sort of rumour loads of times) and another suggesting that a clause was written in the loan deal that gives Swansea a first opportunity to sign him permanently.

The transfer fee probably isn't the biggest problem in keeping Gomez, Huw Jenkins says he's willing to do everything they can to sign him, Martinez is extremely keen to keep him at the club and we could bid in excess of 1 million.

However, Gomez's successful year at the Liberty Stadium has attracted the attention of bigger clubs like Celtic and Newcastle United who have both been linked with the Spaniard.

Another big factor in a possible move is if Espanyol can maintain their top flight status in La Liga. Earlier in the year they looked doom for relegation but after a big improvement in their form, they have rised up to a healthy 14th place. If they suffered relegation, they may felt as though Gomez could return and do a good job in the Second Division in Spain, but in La Liga, his chances of first team football seem very slim.

They could be even slimmer next year if he stays as reports today say that Espanyol are on the verge of signing midfield duo Oscar Ahumada and Javier Calleja. Apparently, their signings will be confirmed once the club confirm their La Liga status.

Espanyol have bidded 2.5million Euros for Ahumada, a player who caught the interest of Juventus and Napoli. Calleja meanwhile is out of contract at Malaga and rejected their new offer, and looks set to join Espanyol who offered a more attractive 2-year deal that Deportivo La Coruna.

I think it's more likely that Espanyol will sell Gomez than to keep him, but the question is can we compete with other clubs who are interested in signing him in terms of transfer fees and wages.
