Betis want Cristian Alvarez

Espanyol captain Cristian Alvarez is set to join Real Betis over the summer, reports in Spain have suggested this afternoon.

Diario de Sevilla have claimed that the 27-year-old goalkeeper will make the move at the end of the season after contract negotiations between the Argentina-born shot-stopper and the Periquitos broke down.

Alvarez has lost his place in the team since Javier Aguirre's arrival thanks to a hamstring injury, but Pepe Mel will look to bring him to Andalusia in a deal worth around €3m.
