Espanyol close on Acuna deal

Sky Sports understands that Javier Acuna is set to reject a move to England after Espanyol showed an interest in the Paraguayan striker.

Last Updated: 24/06/13 at 20:47 Post Comment

Acuna is on the books of Real Madrid, but has spent the past season on loan at Girona and has impressed in the Spanish second division.

Girona have an option to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent basis, but missed out on promotion to La Liga after losing to Almeria in a play-off.

Meanwhile, Premier League newcomers Crystal Palace, along with Championship sides Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest, are also reported to be keen on Acuna.

However, it appears that Acuna is likely to get his chance to play in Spain's top flight after Espanyol stepped up their interest in the forward.

Espanyol scouts have filed several positive reports on Acuna throughout the season and a deal could be finalised this week.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
