Betis plan for Pau Lopez

Real Betis are planning to sign Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez on a free transfer when his contract expires in June 2018.

The 22-year-old has just returned to the RCDE Stadium having completed a season-long loan stint at Tottenham Hotspur, where he didn’t make a single first-team appearance.

According to Estadio Deportivo, Los Verdiblancos have already made tentative approaches regarding a deal and the shot-stopper is open to a move.

Betis backup goalkeeper Dani Gimenez’s contract expires next summer and the club do not at this stage plan to renew his deal, while Antonio Adan’s stay at the club is set to end the following year.

Lopez played twice for Spain Under-21’s side during this summer’s European Championships in Poland.
